Anyone done an 8274 mount/bumper yet?

Has anyone built an 8274 winch mount bumper? The front of the JK has tons of room to sink the winch. The 8274 is still one of the premier hard use winches on the market.

On a side note. Does anyone have the dimensions of the front frame horns for the JK? It would be nice to have them to design around to try out some ideas.

I thought about having a bumper custom made so I could use an 8274. After trying for a while to locate a decently priced one in good shape, I gave up on the idea.

Anyone???

I would like to see a JK bumper that set the winch way down in between the rails. The JK even has enough room for an extended drum dual motor version from gigglepin....

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)

ive got my 8274 sitting in the shop and have looked at several different designs for bumpers. been searching/thinking for about 2 months now. there is almost no way to mount it without cutting the grill that wont hurt the approach angle.
