james duff bumper

will the james duff winch front bumper fit my 04? im sure i will have to modify it anyways since i have a 3"bl. i have searched for weeks and found nothing.. i really want a bumper but cant find anyone to make me one, i dont have many options it looks like unless the yota and jeep bumpers are easy to modify..

find a winch mounting plate that you want. post the link. does the winch need to be behind the bumper or above it?

you want the bumper just like the black one? right, so has some angle on the side but does not wrap around the fender? light tabs and tow points will not be an issue. just need to know where you want them

i can see the steel along costing 120-150 i need to get a quote on it. 30 for each shackle mount, shackles will be around 13 each, i know universal winch plates are like 75ish...

just giving some numbers out. not sure on labor costs but it wont be bad

hey no worries, he might be better off doing that anyway. its always better to build it right on the truck, IMO makes it unique. its not going to be very cheap for me to make it then i have to ship it.

we will let him decide.
