    Here\'s pics of my new front bumper with the winch receiver mount!

    Just installed this last night. Now all I need to do is fab up the winch mount and order my hi-amp connectors for the winch and I can play again! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    NICE!! I like that a lot! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Too bad we couldn't do that with mine but I just can't imagine trying to stab an 8274 winch while standing in 18" of mud. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Thanks all - I like the way it turned out.

    Yeah, I made it myself. I guess I just like experimenting with different style front bumpers. I wanted to use my winch on the front or the back and this is what I came up with for a front bumper.

    I have a JD2 Model 4 with hydraulics. Very sweet bender!

    Thanks Eric!

    Here's the pic of the back bumper with a slightly conservative view of your insparation for the "big ass" side protection /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. The cool thing about the light protection bars is that you can still see both the brake lights and the back-up lights.

    They look really nice! Kinda close to mine but different.
    Just my rear bumper
    Just a quick word of advice, if you didn't add a 45 brace on the back corners underneath, you may bend it into the rear quarters if you hit it hard like I did (do).

    Yeah, I have the wrap around outer protection triangulated back to the frame mount. That wrap around tube is not going anywhere! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    A patriot 9500 will soon be pulled from the box. I tell you, it sure is nice to work in the same town as Ramsey. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    btw, this winch was featured on UPN's new rock crawling show on Saturday mornings. My lovely wife has taped both shows for me!

    Maybe this weekend I'll get up to the shop and fab the mount.

    Great looking bumper, very similar to what I want to build. Any chance I/we could see some close ups of the reciever mount and frame mounting front and rear? More pics, more pics please. Again, nice work! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
