    For me it was most cost-effective to just build my own (with help from Mrk5)...

    Yea it's a one-off bumper, but we used many pictures from this site as inspiration. A fellow member here in CO even let me borrow his bumper (that looks similar) for a couple months just so I could measure it etc.

    I'm from Lexington, MA originally...I'm glad I don't have to break the law everytime I go wheeling out here ;)

    Here is mine, but sadly I would not and can not recommend the company I got it thru. But it gives you an idea of what some K5 winch bumpers look like. IMO< find a local shop and have them fab you up one. If you want more pics to get ideas, I can take em.

    most cost effective for me was to simply mod my dual tube.... will do the same on the front when the time comes...

    35" long x 12" wide C channel from local steel yard = $40

    If you like that one, print the pics and take them to Rock Dog 4x4 in Barrington, NH. Will & Aaron will hook you up. :waytogo:
