    That's a warn winch bumper right. One of the guys from my club has one and says that the center section is pretty stout and holds his winch pretty nicely. The only complaint he has about it is that the outers are pretty flimsy and will tweak pretty easy with any contact they make with mother nature or anything else. If all your paying is 60 for it I'd get it. Just be careful not to "RUB" it too hard.

    yeah the out side isnt ass strong as i thought it wouild be but u know ur bumper mounts on the outside it hoos to those and its pretty stout the metal is really stout and i think it can hold a 12000 or 15000 pound winch.

    You could always weld in some support braces and such. Just an idea.
