    Does anyone know of an off road front bumper that has a 2in receiver built in?

    I have a winch that that I have mounted to a receiver hitch plate so that I can switch it between different vehicles http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/guide-gear-universal-2-truck-winch-mount.aspx?a=775723



    So far the only bumper I can find is the trail gear tube bumper, Is there a plate bumper out there that has the same feature? Also is the receiver on the trail gear bumper even designed to handle a winch?


    Thanks in advance

    Nope. Most plate bumpers are custom made. That said, you can add one to one I'm sure.

    This one's tube but it looks like it may be closer to what you're looking for:

    It's an Avid offroad bumper. I'm not sure if they make them still or not, I didn't see it on their website when I looked quickly a second ago.

    Here's the bumper thread where I found it

    I don't see why the receiver on the Trail Gear front bumper wouldn't work for that winch cradle to handle a winch. It's attached to the winch plate of the bumper and is intended as a recovery point as far as I know.

    Here's an updated pic of what I will be building. If all goes as planned I will have it welded up in a couple weeks. It fits a 1st gen.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I may just end up going with a tube bumper like yours which looks awesome by the way. And they are cheaper than plate bumpers. I still can't help but like the look of the plate bumpers a little better though and figured that I would at least try and see if there might be one out there.

    That looks like it will be really nice and just what I am looking for. I wasn't planing on making a purchase for a while anyway... let me know when you get it finalized, I wouldn't need the light holes though.


    Thanks for posting
