    Prefer a vendor to chime in but anybody who can make it will work. I am looking for a winch mount something like the center of the bumper pictured.

    I don't need it welded up, just the plates cut. I would also need a piece of steel for the fairlead mount but I will cut it myself. I could fab it myself but the price of 1/4" flat is outragous around here. If somebody could do it shoot me a price with shipping to 17331. Just looking for the winch mount/skid pan, I will do the tube work.

    It cost me less than $40 dollars in material to make mine almost eaxactly lihe it. Figure out the exact sqaure area of steel you need, and only buy that amount. I had very small amounts of scrap from the piece I bought. Mine has a slight bend in it that I had done as well. An old guy at a shop threw it in his brake and did a very light bend to compensate for the frames upward angle. I cut all the steel out with a cutoff wheel. It tokk a little while, but was a great starter project.

    I bought a 20 ft piece of 2X2 last year, found out here that I could have gotten some at the local steel scrap yard a lot cheaper! Never thought about that before! :wink1:

    Use 1/4x12 C channel. I made a crossmember on my 95 silverado out of it. Just cut a notch out for the fairlead. Cost me $25 for 1/4" thick x8" wide x2"tall and 35" long.

    It's pretty bad when I can't find 1/4" plate at a decent price but I got 740' of 1 3/4x.120 DOM today for $2.27 per foot.

    My fairlead is UHMW for my rope so I am not sure how well it will work without having some sort of backing.

    What kind of price, like I said I don't need it welded up. Shipped to 17331. I have a friend checking to see if he can get the steel through his work, but if that does not pan out I will need something.
