I just started a bumper job trading for a Ramsey 12000 winch, so I am going to have to work that into the design now too haha

Well, seeing as the winch is now involved I have to really think this through. I just got finished with finals (thank god) so I am trying to reorganize and get into summer haha Graduated today so now I am home free! Hopefully more updates soon!

I agree that it would look great, but I don't even think the Ramsey RE 12000 would fit at all inside haha

Okay sorry I let this one go guys, but the bumper is nearly complete. the main section is on the Jeep, I just need to mount the winch and do the tow points, lights, and stinger. I will update you with pics after crazy finals are over!!!

Dude...that front is totally bad @#&. I love it. Hope you don't mind, but I am saving the pictures of it for my own ideas. The model looks awesome. What software are you running? I use Soldiworks.

Weld a radiator hoop to the frame and run those support bars to it instead of just having them touching the grill. That way it will be solid and if you roll over the radiator will be fine.

I am using Autodesk Inventor. It all depends on what you were trained on which one you like better haha I dont mind, I would like to see the design you do on solidworks though

I thought about the hoop for sure, but ultimately decided against it. I am leaving the bars out for now so one could easily be added later. I want to do tube fenders I can tie into first I think...

Okay so what do you guys think? Starting to look like the picture yet? hahaha I got all of the really complex pieces cut and welded relatively easy, I just followed my design and everything ended up in the right place. None of the angles are right angles so it was tricky to set the pieces up. I am happy with the basic design, but it sticks out a hair farther than I would like to accomadate the winch that will be on it. The approach angle is still good enough for me though and I have more protection for my steering box...

It definitely is, but I like the balance of it better than a smaller one especially with the rear tire carrier, and once the stinger is on you will get the final look...

I have been trained both. But it has been about 5 years since I use inventor. I have been using Solidworks for 13. If you search for my name you can probably see my rear bumper and rocker guards. Yours is looking good though.

I have the winch mounts figured out now. All that is left to do is brace mounts, and add the stinger before finish sanding and paint! It is coming along...
