if he wont mind it you could just ask him if you could cut a half section of the flare and a half or less section of the center of the bumper. hence it would look the same but, it would be smaller.

I am sorry I let this one go guys, but this is the way it finally looked on Black bear pass when it was done... The mounting was a bit of a nightmare, but its beautiful.

Hey that looks pretty good! Too bad the owner didn't want to cut the flares though as a lot of clearance could have been gained in front of the tires.

Love that tire clearance. He wanted it very stock looking as far as that went, and even so it gained SOME clearance.

It looks like you also realized that the winch was not gonna fit inside haha How did you figure out the mounts? I like the way the tube portion came out on mine, but it looks like you made a separate skid for the bottom...

I actually didn't want to put a winch inside because it would stick out too far for my liking.
For mounts I just insert a strip with nuts welded to them that match the factory holes plus one behind them into the unibody openings. Holes drilled to match with angle iron. The winch bumpers also get two more bolts on the face of the crossmember.

That skid is actually all one piece incorporated with the bumper.

It looks nice, it looks like you have the design all figured out. Hopefully I never have to build a KK bumper again haha but if I do I would change a few things. Mine ended up with about 8 mounting bolts as well

Looks good I like how it turned out. Mounting does suck I helped my buddy do his and it was a huge PITA.

I have also heard those stick on chrome vents from Walmart add like 75+ HP..
