No need to make anything lower to the ground. The only thing I really hated about my ARB was how it killed the approach angle. I wouldn't get another one because of that.

were actually building something similar to this one but im gonna bring it all the way to the bottom of the radiator and maybe even replace the rad support with it by adding some brackets. so the bottom will serve better support than KORs rad support and be integrated into the bumper

Tube bumpers are not the prettiest but they are better because they are very strong, have better approach angles, and lighter than the others. I would go tube for sure next time.

Not a huge fan of that one but it is super simple to build. I want a stinger. Hopefully its there if I ever need it.

Simple to build... maybe

The install on the other hand...

Check out where the winch is located, he's got a bunch of work behind the bumper/grill that you can't see

Also notice the outer sections of the inner bumper are gone. That is one of the nicest, most. Work involved bumpers I've seen. Looks amazing as well.

That bumper/ winch combo is very nice. You can tell the owner wheels it because there was alot of work done in an effort to obtain maximum approach angle. It's not so much about winch work, as it would have been pretty easy to just let it stick out past the front bumper like most other designs... but the approach angle is awesome. Actually, my approach angle is very close to this and I built my front bumper the way I did because that's what I was after.

Yup, I just noticed he replaced the bottom lights too. Check them out (the sized have a angled cut on them compared to stockers)

I built mine on approach angle only. Winch is removable for a few reasons 1 approach angle, 2 I'm cheap and use 1 winch fnr of 2 different rigs, 3 approach angle. Lol. I even put the rad in the back simply for approach angle.

If some do not think approach angle is a big deal. I was stuck in a mud trench for an hour, back and forth, finally bit the bullet and removed my winch as it was a pita back then, drove right out. There are many times on the trail you will find you need a better approach angle.
