    I picked up my new front winch bumper yesterday from Fab Corr in southern Wisconsin (site coming by next month!). Here are a couple of pics:

    Now, all it needs is paint and a winch /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Pretty nice, but I don;t think I'd want that reciever sticking out there ready to blow itself into the dirt and whatnot, very smooth fabbing though

    TRIM YOUR FENDERS TO MATCH!

    (I know you wont)

    I took some more pics. I think it has to grow on me yet. I understand it has to stick out some to accomodate the winch, but it looks a bit odd. He said something about filling it in a bit at a later date, but he did not have the truck there to work on. I live 4 hours away from the fabricator.

    Another front shot:

    It can even be used as a picnic table for now.

    He boxed in most of it, to keep mud out.

    Center section was left open for installation of winch.

    And, the side view.

    Looks kinda funny I suppose. I'd like to have it wrapped around a bit and I would not hesitate to /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif the fenders to match - except what do I do about those darned flares?? What was I thinking /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif when I put those on?
