You could always get a winch cover. I bet that thing is a lot heavier than stock tho I don't know if that would affect gas mileage or anything. I'd run it full time just for BA factor haha

ahh i got ya now. didnt realize you were making it bolt on. i thought you said earlier you were goin to weld it on. guess i just didnt read it right. well then if that is the case sounds badass. and yea about the bends i was just saying but then i remembered you have a b/l and then you go by ear on bending lol so writing them down prolly wont work if you did them for someone else.
