    I just got done with my rear bumper, and need to start one for the front, i was just going to use 2x6 square across the entire front, but got to thinking about, how hard is it really to put one together for a winch?? I dont have a winch and dont have a clue when i will be able to get one (after a 60, thats for sure /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) but it would be nice to build something i can keep. So any info on how to mount it to the frame, deminsions, tricks to make it work better, things like that. TIA
