I was thinking about 2x5 instead. However I like my winch plate and wanted to keep it but also add a winch guard to it and I think it would probably conflict between the two. So I was going to have it meet up flush with the top of the frame with 1/4" plate running across.
The issue with the 2x5 is how to do the bottom tabs. The frame is about 4" tall so assuming the 2x5 is flush on the top how to attach the bottom? Just weld to the middle of the tube? Any thing special needs to be done?
I have been building it in qcad which is a free 2D program with 2x4 as the spec but I might look at also doing 2x5. I will take a screen shot and post up for comments
