Icon6 Price

Well, the overall price may sound high to some but I got 3 separate prices on having the stuff just sandblasted so I could paint it and they ranged from $200 - $275. That made the decision much easier for me...

Icon6 Done!

Yes, finally... got it back from powdercoating yesterday, put it together and installed it today. LONG project... hope it was of interest and maybe even helpful to some of you.

That looks real good I like it a lot! Is it mounted directly to the frame with some custom strong brackets or what?
What did it set you back?

so whered you mount the winch control box and can you get the remote to it?

also what are the measurements on the bumper from bumper mounting plate to mounting plate and what were they originally for the ZJ bumper? ( I remember reading you had him narrow the winch box and mouting points)

i don't know if it would be cheaper, but to find exactly what you're looking for and to add your own "EDGE" to it. Build or pay someone to build you one that you think would look cool....so yeah!
