the front is a little too pointy for my taste, but it looks real good. it probably wont even look homemade once its painted. also, i would have made the top above the lip underneath the turn signals to get rid of the gap, but thats just me. and why a winch mount and a receiver?

I like it! It looks nice and has high clearance. Dont bother getting a hitch plate holder, Get some d cell maglite mounts for the and clip it to the roller fairlead.

I like it. It's different, and I like different. For your first bumper build, it's not obscenely huge that kills your approach angles.
