bumper/ winch mount .

well i needed a place to mount my winch and i didn't have the cash to buy a bumper so a my buddy hooked me up with every thing needed to do it plus his time and shop!!
this is just a few hours of cutting and welding, when i have some time we will finish it.

Looks like it will work OK, but how are you connecting to the frame? Welding? I've thought about fabbing my own sometime.

i don't really know yet?? think i'm going to clamp it with some big bolts throw the frame. or weld it .

It might be hard to see right now,but when it's done it's going to look sick.

ya that's what i meen buy i have to finish it . that's just the winch mount part.

the rest is going to hide the frame ends and go up to the body and round the fender.,

But there is alot to cover with the 3 " body lift.
