    I am looking to either make myself a new winch bumper or save the time and buy a new one. Anyone have any personal experience with a bumper, and its cost?

    Thanks

    Save yourself some money and build your own. I made mine out of 6" Channel and a piece of 1/4 plate. With paint, undder 50 bucks.

    Warn's bumpers are crap. They bend easily and the ones normal people can afford look cheap.
    Ramsey's bumpers appear to be the same as Warn's. It wouldn't surprise me if both companies had their bumpers made by the same outsider company.

    Build it!

    Poundin' the ol "pavment"!

    I like a receiver hitch and removable winch mount... can be used in the front and rear,,,,,, safer to remove it from the outside and keep it inside...
