    I am going to make a per runner bumper and dont know if I need to use .5" plate or if I can get away with .25" plate for the mounts that bolt to the frame

    I will be mounting a HS9500i to it when I get one so sould the mounting local for the winch be .5" or .25"

    thants

    I'm Back BACK IN BLACK

    1/2" thick steel seems way overkill to me, but I'm no enginneer. I don't ever seeing anything on a truck with steel that thick....I would check around some more.
