Ok the winch bumper drawings have been accepted and the bumper is on order.

Here's the drawing, and in a few weeks I'll post of a picture of the real thing.

Congrats! Can't wait to see it on the rig!
Scary to draw a bumper free hand then give someone a wad of money to build it into reality. I went with DetoursUSA to build it. They did a surperb job on my rear bumper, so it's not quite as scary.

You mind me asking how much it ran?

Also how far is it going to sit away from your grill?
I got a "special" price because I am a repeat customer. I think he said it would be about $850 to $900. If you look at the TrailReady bumper for the Liberty (which is is very similar to, it is $1,100)

That is yet to be determined. It may be 7 1/2 inches from the grill I was telling Mark that further out was fine with me as I wanted the angles I drew.

He is concerned about hanging too much weight out the front. So he is in major free hand to reality conversion mode right now.

Ya I would be very interested in knowing how much it weighed all said and done.
I'll post it here when I find out. I feel it will be close to 100 lbs.

Mine is a daily driver. I'm really building an off road capable rig. I want to winch to get me out of trouble probably during an emergency like a hurricane or a flood. I DON'T want to cheap out on the winch because on the few times I'll use it, it must work.
