That looks cool, but what's up with the narrow slot for the winch fairlead? I think the standard is 10". And if you are putting a winch, you need a couple of access holes to activat the clutch and so forth.

most fabricators like relentless who fab bumpers like this and sell them as a business probably aren't just going to hand over that which they have spent countless hours to design and sell.

your best bet is to either buy one from them, find someone that did their own custom bumper and see if they are willing to share their work, or just do one up yourself and make it completely custom... i just bought one from elite. lots of options out there if you decide to buy, endless options if you decide to build yourself


good luck and post pics of what you decide on

I thought you said you had a plywood one that fit perfectly? Can't you transfer the measurements to the metal?
