Homemade Winch Bumper

It's a little heavy and I think it looks terrible but it works well. The winch was $100 on sale and the metal was free scrap. Next i'm putting LED lights in it

xxcharger,
Looks really good to me. Don't put yourself down. The manufacture and installation is right up there with the pros but, and I say but, your design is much simpler and well placed on the XX. Outstanding! Need to see another picture when you have the lights installed.
Thanks,
Sid

Yeah great job, just got a better look on the PC. Also wondering about your front A-arm guards. The look like there secured with a U-bolt. Which I like that idea a lot better than the honda racing or DG one I used to have. What brand are they, and don't tell me you made them as well...

The plates are JnJ Industries from eBay for around $150 shipped. They hold with these wrap around straps. The best plates I've found and had on my 400ex were from Ricochet but they are more expensive for the 700. http://www.ricochetoffroad.com
