Started off with the aluminum bumper with full width caps and hi mount shackles

Then changed fenders

Then went to mid caps because stubby wouldn't work with Antirock, added the fixed fairlead, and gear box skid. I will be adding the stinger eventually.

Nice! I love the interchangeability of these bumpers.

How do the endcaps take the abuse?

No problems at all and they have been abused. I went with the aluminum bumper and steel endcaps, also.

No problems with the end caps, I still have the full length caps sitting in my closet after I swapped to the mids. I say they both hold up fine, but I've never slammed them on rocks, just light scraping.

Just the light bar for me. I also have the bull bar thing but have since taken it off. I like the stubby look.

I think I may go with that to protect the winch, but I've also got an idea for a custom add on too

I thought about plasma cutting around the swayLoc on the end caps...then I decided to just not have end caps. Lol

I'm thinking about adding a radiator hoop to it. Possibly keeping the bolt on/modular theme to the bumper but still undecided on how I want to go about it

Just to get peoples creative juices flowing. This is similar to what ive got planned, although tying the winch guard into a grill hoop, not through the headlights.

My bumper project has been backburnered but not forgotten! I did however add an 8274 winch and KD Fabworks winchplate to mine, and from doing a ton of research on if it would fit, I may be the first one to have done the 8274 on the metalcloak bumper! Ill be ordering my winch guard soon after the v8 is wrapped up.
