    I have had my winch plate sitting on my truck for a couple months now and finally got around to building the rest of the bumper.

    Designed it in BendTech Pro, the best money I have ever spent:

    Finally finished building the bender and bending the pieces to calibrate the software for the die:

    The calibration pieces:

    Main bar and center supports tacked up:

    One side support in place:

    Left side support in place as well as some tabs for the stock turn indicators:

    All tacked up and ready for finish welding:
