    Another \"New Bumper Post\" - Hidden Winch Bumper

    For those who have asked, I finally finished the hidden winch bumper. This bumper has a better approach angle than the factory bumper. There is a Ramsey RE12000 hidden back within the frame rails. I had to run the winch clutch release thru the frame(as seen it the bottom picture) and hard wire the wired remote plug in the grill. Oh - this bumper can be used with or without a winch. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Damn you be fabbin some smooth stuff up there!

    That stinger and guard design is what I have planned for my rig next month....I like the plate for the winch though, makes a great place to stand. But I see where you hardcore boys would like that mucho!!!

    Hey, also I have that antanne here ready to go out if you're still interested. Shoot me out your addy. It's in great shape and ready to roll!

    Yeah, I see what your saying about a place to stand. There really isn't room on the bumper for that, but plenty of room on the hood. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    btw, on the antenna, I had already bought one before you put yours up for sale, that's what I was bitchen about in my response.

    Very nice. I really like how you have conserved the approach angle. Something similar will end up on my rig.
    Cool /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Another \"New Bumper Post\" - Hidden Winch Bumper

    Thanks guys! I know it's a little different , but I wanted to keep the "stock" (except for the stinger) shape of the bumper and keep the approach angle.
    Oh well, off to the next project - re-building a set of 2.5 ton Rockies. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
