I like the positioning of the winch, in behind the bumper.
I'm interested in the HOW ?
Looks like you added a plate to the bottom of the frame ?
Not to make this sound any easier than it was but what else did you have to do ?
Did you bolt through frame, both levels or just the bottom ?
Any additional bracing ?
sorry for all of the questions but I want to do this and would like to know what and how you did it.
p.s. What IF... and it is your truck so take this with a grain of salt... what if you cut the valance out around the curve section (out a little further than you did), added in some Diamond Plate to fit the opening and taper back toward the Fairlead (allowing room for the cable if needed); a different way to clean up the opening...
