Default Front Bumper Completion

I started this bumper years ago but never finished. I built out enough to mount the winch, easier to put the rig on a trailer!

Middle section is 1/4" plate, reinforced with same. 1/2" plate for winch mount, added roller fairlead bracket, welded down. Wings are built out of 11 gauge. Push bar is built out of 1 1/4" SCH40CS piping. all scrap, had all of it on hand. Mostly MIG weld, some stick.

Mounting is to 3/8" thick bracketry welded to a reinforced front frame crossmember. Reinforced with 1/4" steel and stitch welded. Bolting is 5/8" grade 8.

I have a Lazer Star 10" LED spot that I might buy a mate for and mount on it somewhere. I don't know. Either that or a 20" bar. We'll see.
