WINCH BUMPERS IN CANADA?

Does anyone know of a decent winch bumper dealer or fabricator in Canada? Hard to find a good one through local stores, very expensive, just trying to save a buck! Cheers.

Yes. They r very strong but pretty heavy, so you have to upgrade to a heavier front suspension.

If you aren't upgrading the suspension an ARB and winch are too heavy , look into RelentlessFab's aluminum bumper , it weighs 55 lbs + whatever your winch weighs

Totally forgot to post pics,sorry! The bumper an racks were made from a guy in Salmon Arm, his company is called Bush Gear!!! He is a great guy, tradesman, and I get commented on the bumper everywhere I go! The bumper is unique, and has some pretty cool angles. I haven't tested the bumper/winch system yet, but seems very sturdy. I did have to upgrade my coils to the OME 886. Now that I have a winch, I'll probably never get stuck! lol I'll post better pics soon!
Cheers[IMG][/IMG]
