Started my rear bumper the other day.

Chopped out a section of the rear cross member to make room for the winch.


If you wanted to know what the inside of your rear cross member looked like.


Welded in a strip of 3/16th to box in the cross member


Made some mounts out of 2x4 1/4 wall

Winch plate and the rest of the top tacked in place. Used a 1/4 plate for the winch, 3/16th on everything else.


Boxed in around the winch.



Receiver hitch welded in


Woulda got more done but ran out of welding wire. Hope to have some more done soon.

Ive only found two company's that make a bumper with the winch in the rear; benchmark which is my favorite and I think olympic, not a big fan. So I decided to fab my own.

Thank you sir, I built my front bumper as well and the rear has been much more time and labor intensive

Badass, man. I, like Bendrinken, made my own front and am looking forward to working on the rear. Killer setup and looks mean too. Any plans for a tire swing or cage?

Got a hinge set up and latch from comp 4x4, plan on making a tire carrier that has a spot for my hi-lift shovel and ax as well as the cargo rack above the tire and the jerry can set up on either side of the tire.
I got the reciver hitch tied into the frame mounts with some 2x2 1/8th in wall and finished up the bottom skid plate, ill post some pics up tomorrow when I get off work.
