    I love the exposed winch. Tons of options and way easier to get at/maintain.

    The best part about it is it is different than all other bumpers on the market.

    If you want to pay a lot more for both labor and shipping sure. But that will likely push the shipping up by another $75 as well as $75 in labor. And, I would NOT be able to tuck in the sides since I need that 2" for a place for the headlight tube to land.

    If by any chance when you make another one, could you get a weight estimate on it?

    Its only 70lbs. Crossmember that comes with it is 15lbs. So, 85lbs total.

    Its extremely light by plate bumper standards.

    Would we be able to get custom fog light cut-outs for it?

    I'm pretty much in agreement with everyone else who said a little narrower at the corners. Either way, big thumbs up from me! Looks great Scotty! Honestly I think I like it a little better than my old one. If I was gonna run a winch on the front, I'd definitely get this.

    Only other thing I'm curious about - is it at all possible to move the fairlead mount higher so it's not hanging off the front like that?

    That is very hard to do without the light in house, and without everyone using the same exact light. Its not something we want to get into a habit of doing since everyone doesn't want to run the same light.

    Dang, not even if it was just a square fog light that's 3" by 3"?

    The bumper looks awesome Scotty! I like the ground clearance you guys got with the open winch mount. :cool:

    Then what happens when someone wants a round one? Or oval, square, triangle, etc...???

    When you are pre-cutting 25 bumpers out, its hard to make the adjustments for each individual bumper. There is CAD work and constant tweaking to the design to fit different lights. Like I said, if everyone want the exact same fog light, its doable. But, nobody wants that.
