offroad front bumper attachment

Curious as to how you guys attached an offroad bumper, I used the pre-existing 3 holes that the stock bumper was attached to the frame by to attach my bumper with grade 8 bolts. Im thinking about getting a winch and was wondering if this attachment point will be strong enough to hold? what are your guy's experience? do I need to tear my bumper down and extend my brackets further down the frame or should the existing holes be good?

look here,
http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showt...=121583&page=3
about 3/4 down the page there is a picture of some "beef sticks". This is a very popular design for heavy duty bumper mounting. If you look a little farther back on your frame, there should be another two holes that are already threaded the same as the front 3 bumper bolts (I think it's 1/2 x 13 or something close). In that pic in the thread, the holes for these bolts are at the far right. The larger holes that are more centered, are there to allow access to the steering box bolts.

Also, a little closer to the bottom of the page, there is a pic with the "sticks" installed, and the winch mount started.

I can push trees out of the way with it and pull semis out of ditches

Again, what about the design is unique that you're calling it "offroad".

There are lots of bumpers out there that can push trees out of the way and pull semis out of ditches. Every single one of them may have a different mounting method and design, so lumping them all in the same basket isn't doing much to get you an educated answer.

It provides maximum ground clearance, two d ring tow points and corner protection, I think muddy provided good information on how to mount the bumper correctly. I seeyour from Colorado ..... that explains it

Right. You're the one asking vague questions about something you could find on your own, but I'm the one being questioned if I'm for real....

And because I'm from Colorado I must be a left wing, liberal nut job right? If you had a clue you wouldn't assume anything based on location. At least our idea of offroading isn't pushing trees down and pulling semis out of the ditch.

Ok boys, lets not get our panties in a bunch.

yes, the original question about "off road" bumpers was a little vague, and CSP made a good point about being a little more specific with your questions.
There are many types and designs of "off road" bumpers. For example, someone that does a lot of high speed stuff in the desert is not going to have the same design of bumper as someone who wheels mostly on wooded trails.

If you wanted, you could take a piece of 6" drain pipe, and weld it to the frame, and call it an "off road bumper".

I saw 'off road' and basically assumed the standard trail rig kinda of stuff but I am from Arizona, the winch comment was a clue too.
