    Hey guys, I am trying to decide what vent design to go with on my CBI bumper I am ordering. Assuming the side vents are just for decoration/cooling (I am still waiting 100% conformation on that) and I can access the winch from the top of the bumper would you rather go with option 1 or option 2. Also, I will have either option covered with some mesh to keep debris from coming up and hitting my radiator/condenser/intercooler:

    OPTION 1, standard side triangles with long vent above winch hole.

    OPTION 2, same standard side triangle with no long vent above the winch (I was only able to blur it out).

    Option 3, slots on either side and above the winch hole.

    LoL Yea, I liked the look of it but cut your truck out so I didnt run into any issues posting up anyone else's truck.

    One reason I like your design (Option 3) is I have a supercharger and am in Tucson, Az so cooling is a big issue with me.

    I think there is room in the top of the bumper right in front of the grill to reach in and engage it. I am waiting to hear 100% on that though.

    Yea, I have the Smittybilt X2O 10-Comp series winch. No matter what version I go with I will probably go with some sort of mesh over the holes/vents. As long as I can reach in via the top then I am all good.

    Is ten gauge thicker or thinner than normal? Any particular reason you went with that?
