grill guards, bull bars, and other nasty bumpers

well i noticed some pretty fancy bumpers on some of these trucks and i am also trying to plan out a totally custom bumper that uses the stock bumper+a lightbar+a winch+a skid plate...ya its gonna be fun anyways i kinda want to see what else is out there so if you have an aftermarket bumper u should definately post it here just cuz that would be cool

3 inch is way too big...go 1.5.Put the winch behind the bumper if you are keeping the factory bumper(the way you have it,first time you use the winch it will rip off).here is a pic of a pro-comp light bar on mine...1.25 tube(not a great pic of it)......and the bumper on my toy.... 1.5 tube.

The winch needs to be mounted as close and level to the frame as you can get
