No, I wasn't insinuating that they were a copy.....just a cooler version of a similar style bumper. I really like the looks of yours.

Realy nice bumper!!

Looking for those suspension seats too! I was thinking about trying to find a junkyard set from a comercial delivery truck, but they are not easy to find.

I am with you, I have a ME degree and access to several CAD softwares, and I usually just build stuff on the fly, I also usually don't know what materails I am going to use since I often just use what is laying around of can be scavenged...makes it even harder to draw.

Finally finished mounting and hooking up the winch today. Its only an 8k winch but it should be fine for anything I will need. I didnt want the control box out where it could get smacked so l stuffed it behind the grill panel.

Is there a part number on that Warn Kit? Even if it is not currently available, it might make it easier to find in the aftermarket.

Metal, I like the smaller design as it reduces overhang. Great craftsmenship! Regardless, I might go with a "non-roller"fairlead as the roller look so huge, but that is personal taste.

Have a great week!

Thanks,

The winch isnt a Warn, And its not a kit... ? But good call on the non-roller fairlead. I just threw this one on that came with the winch... I will have to get one of the non rollers and see how it looks.

Sorry for the confusion... I actually meant the Warn Bumper mounting kit mentioned earlier in the thread.

I am going with a poly rope on my winch as I do not hard mount it but have it on a receiver mount. That way I can use it on the fornt, back or even put on someone else's rig with a receiver when I need help! Only thing is with the metal line it weighs like 80 pounds! I can move it around, but losing about 20 pounds would be nice (of course, I could personally stand to lose about 80, but that's another subject!)

Have a great weekend,

Jesse

I took some old KC light housings that looked pretty rough and had them powder coated the same as the bumper. I then put the Hid conversion kit inside the housing and mounded it. Exceptional lighting with the ole school look. All the lights work wonderfully. It literally lights up the desert. I'm totally happy with how everything has ended up with this bumper. Now on to the back!

Thanks guys for all the kind words and help with this bumper. Its fairly easy to build with a few good tools and a little patients. If you would like to use the design to build one for yourself feel free! If I'm around and can answer any questions for ya I will be more than happy to walk ya through it.




ALL DONE!

How do you like the lights that are mounted in the bumpers? Are they driving or fogs? I didn't see any mention of brand. I recently built a winch bumper for my Eagle and want to incorporate some fogs in the bumper.

The little oval guys are just driving lights. They are Walmart $20.00 a pair and work just fine Because of the front angle of the bumper it shines the light forward and out along the edge and center of the road. I use them a lot and really like them. I think they sell a yellow lens with the same shape but not sure. Not much in the line of fog here in So Cal so I cant speak of first hand experience with that.

Some say the little lights are junk but Ive had them for sometime now and like them just fine. I was more interested in a cheap replacement so when I gouge these out on the rocks. I give them a 10 out of 10 for effective and cost, Exactly what I wanted.

Thanks, damaging an expensive light mounted in the bumper is also a concern of mine.
