Sorry didn't catch that the winch is mounted in a cradle. Are you going to run battery cable to the rear of your Jeep so you can use the winch back there?

It's not tied to the fenders.. just the winch hoop. Fenders are bolt-on like stockers.

Thinking about doing something like this bottom sketch? But I still am not sure yet. Plus to make it out of 3/16th or 1/4" steel?

3/16" is plenty strong for a good bumper. I've had a couple of mine involved in rollovers and minor accidents.. usually just have to clean up the rock rash and shoot new paint.

Most bumpers I see are 3/16th but is see a very few people say they used 1/4". My rear was made with 3/16th, but I thought I would ask it see what other used.

Saw a winch idea today at the Rainforest Challenge in Malaysia, great rigs and some great ideas.

A number had placed the winch in the back of the vehicle and run the cable to the front UNDER the vehicle through a couple of eyelets welded to the frame. The cable then pops out the front through a roller fairlead under the bumper. Fantastic idea as you are not ramming the winch into the rocks / mud. Obviously you need to keep the route fairly straight so it may only suit those with a lot of clearance who can pass the cable over the axles and the fuel tank may need to be relocated.

I have a $130.00 pro comp bumper( even came with clevis's) and a Besrk winch plate.
Not fancy, or all angular with hoops, stingers and lights with covers on them.
I did mount my hilift jack on top of the roller fairlead, there are 1/2'' holes on the top of most fairleads and they match up perfect for the holes in hilift jacks.
The winch is a poor mans warn, its an 8500lb engo, with a warn sticker on it, and it gets covered with a runuva cover, so its a mix of a little bit of everything, but its all working still.

I thing I am going to go with 2x5 for the front bumper. 2x4 just looks small.
