I had considered going that route, but after thinking about it I went with a Rugged Ridge XHD modular bumper. I think the stock setup is nice but I hated the plastic bumper. Good luck and let us see how it comes out.

It looks good, just make sure you measure 10 times before cutting the bumper and also I would put door trim (the plastic for the edge) around the inside of the hole.


Good luck!!!

half way done all i have to do is finish cutting the plastic bumper and then install all the wiring started to get dark and getting to lazy i will probably finish it next weekend but hey the winch is mounted i just have to hook up the wiring and im good to go :scratch: who needs a bumper...

ps don't touch the metal after grinding it gets hot! not that i would do anything like that :serenade: and the plastic is thicker than i though

what did you say measure with a micrometer mark it with a crayon and cut it with an ax?
