David Allen (of david allen racing) has a sweet looking setup. He just removed the center piece of the bumper, leaving the outer pieces and put the winch in the middile. It looks sweet.
mine attaches to the front of the winch though.his does look real clean.maybe i can do something like that.

Not a stock bumper, and not a very clean install, but here's mine:
and a page I made up describing how I did it:
thanks stuka and bob.i mounted it similar to david allens.i removed the center of the 3 pc bumper and welded the end pcs right to the winch "cradle"bracket.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked how I have mine mounted. It gives it a nice clean look and doesn't stick out to far as to take away approach angles.

Hey dave, what size lift springs are those on the front of your chero? They look like they have way more arch then my 6" springs.

I believe that they are around 7.5" of total lift. :rolleyes: They started as custom 6" springs from about 15 years ago. They then progressed through several rebuilds and upgrades to end up where they are now. The remarkable thing is that for such arched springs, they ride fairly decent and flex really well.
