its still pretty rough but this is what it looks like now. i picked up a warn m8000 winch that im gonna mount behind the new bumper. i got the hole cut to recess the fairlead so it doesnt stick out so far. there is also a picture of the back bumper i built a few months ago.

I like that back bumper with the Jack mount and the light...are those KC lights mounted in the bumper. Been wondering what that would look like.

Those look awesome! I would rethink the jack placement though. Hate to bend that thing up.

yeah I would be scraping that hilift all over the place, then it would be jammed in the ground if you were stuck and needed it

Yeah i put the jack back there mostly because it looks cool. Its pretty easy to throw it in the bed or tool box if need be.

winch mount pics. i moved the tranny cooler up higher so the winch would slide back in under the grill.

ok i finally found a little time to work on this thing some more. i built the mounting brackets, and put a couple coats of primer on it. i cant wait to finish this thing! i just need to smooth out a few spots with some body filler, and put a few coats of bed liner on it

Thanks! I would guess that i spent about $200 on steel, welding wire, grinder wheels, primer, paint, body filler, etc.

I know this is a late reply but your bumpers are pretty SWEET! I like the fact that you kept your design simple but very functional. Again, that is a very good job!

I dont have any install pics of the tranny filter, but its pretty self explanatory. Just make sure you get the in and out lines hooked up right. i bought the kit from summit for like $30.
