    I'm pretty sure that is the Warn Enforcer winch bumper. I havn't heard that many good things about them, someone said they are like plates attached to a frame, not a one piece deal, I have mostly heard they are good for looks, not so much function.

    Ya, that is a Warn Enforcer bumper. It is about $300 for the bumper and almost $300 for the mounting kit. (from what I was told)

    I saw a Sub. with a winch mounted behind the stock bumber. Any one ever see this? It looked really clean, but I'm not sure how it was done.

    Was it one of those winches that mounts in a receiver hitch? I think that one of those would be great with a hitch mounted on the front and on the back of the truck. Hopefully they provide some beefy connectors for the wiring, though.

  8. You can buy the kit for the wire install from warn.The only bad thing about the front reciever is that it herts your aproach angle.

    IF IT AINT BIG IT AINT BAD!!!!!!

    Even though I own one, I have to agree that Warns are weak. The middle part where the winch goes is pretty thick but from the middle out, is thinner and thats where it bends. I'm almost afraid to stand on it! I'll be selling it soon before I bend it. BTW I have the Warn Classic.

    Two Whoppers for two bucks!!!! I'm there, what bumper? J/K! That's a sharp looking bumper, I don't know if I'd pay $600 for it though.[​IMG]
