the standard depends on the company. I think most companies use the same pattern but I do know there are a couple that are slightly different.

from what I read, winches under 10k use the 4.5x10" standard mounting pattern. Some of the bigger winches use a different pattern.

i sent them an email for a quote, im waiting to hear back from that. this sucks cause i really dont know what i want..

this is the only tube bumper i like, it was custom made for this guy from james duff, i asked if they could make me one and they said no..




if i cant get somthing like that made then i will resort to what i originaly wanted. with this bumper i can get a removable reciever winch plate and i can worry about what winch i want later..

I would just call Baystate and talk to them. Phone is a much faster way to contact people.

with torsion bars i would definitely want a removable winch. its just too much weight for the front of the truck all the time.

so if i have any problems with baystate, Zach you think you could make this bumper? im assuming tube is cheaper then what i originaly wanted..

im liking the tube bumper with reciever idea alot better than they other one i wanted, the more i think about it the more i want the tube one.. i dont know if i like the light tabs mounted so high but im sure i can find another place to mount them..

and with it having a reciever i dont think i will need d rings, what do you guys think

I can do a tube bumper like that. easier than the other. Hardest part will be making it for a truck with a 3" body lift.

well one like mine is there for engine and frontal protection, like going down a steep incline and the back floping over to the front.
