building a winch style bumper

I like the looks of them but not the price so I decided to build my own.


working out from the center

welded the gussets before I couldn't get to them any more and added a brace just so the ears would somewhat hold their shape during fitup

getting there

mocking up the outsides

with metal instead of cardboard

drivers side done

as I was cutting pieces for the drivers side I cut some for the passenger side also, so the second side went very quickly. The passenger side is about 1/4[/img][img]http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/tt360/tigman250/th_0227101852.jpg">

Looks like you did one hell of a job. Did you make it for a wench while you were at it, Warren or Ramsey?

I had a 10,000 lb Warren and it was fantastic. Carried a rear axle half, a sledge hammer, sntach block and some chain. I wasn't afraid to go anywhere.
