    Try a search for front bumpers on this site. Your best bet IMO.

    Heres what i did, all 1/4 steel, basically just the two side were bolted onto the truck then winch platfrom was welded to them, i added the hooks and 2x4 sides later, after i put the winch on im going to cut it to size and might drop the rectangular sides for some tubing

    Here's one that I built. I mounted a Ramsey Patriot 15000 behind it between the frame rails.

    I used 1.25", 1.5" and 2", also the frame mounts are made from 5/8" flat bar and they also double as recovery points.
