I love the look of my ranger but I was forced to install a stock XL bumper that I had found on craigslist because my XLT bumper rotted and fell apart. The look of the truck in my opinion wasn't as good as it was with my XLT bumper with fog lights so this year I thought I would make a change. Instead of instaling a new stock bumper though I decided to have a winch bumper built. I looked around on craigslist and even on some of the known sites that make winch bumpers but also in my findings I found a local off-road fabrication shop that said they would gladly take on my project. (I would've made it myself but I do not have the tools required to cut and weld this gauge of steel.) So I dropped my truck off and gave him a picture of how I wanted the bumper to look but I also gave him the ability to make some changes as he likes and I think it came out awesome! I will be running a Smitty Bilt 9500lb winch and I am also having LED pods installed in the bumper. The bumper is getting the rest of the welds finished and a fresh coat of paint this week.
OLD stock XL bumper. Cut-outs were for lvl 2 hooks and a small plow that wasn't on the truck long:
picture I gave him to go by only which he would have to modify it for a winch and better tire clearance:
