richs347, I really like that tube work ^^^^. Looks great. I know what you mean about just wanting it to be over....
Since we're posting winch bumpers and all. I got this warn 8274 winch for $200, and the guy said it had bad solenoids, which I was fine with. Come to find out, he just had them wired wrong, hahaha. So I put a lower unit rebuild kit in it ( $38 ), broke it down to its basic parts and sand blasted it, and painted it with wheel paint ( $15 ).
After words, I desided that I was going to modify my standard warn winch plate with winch guard to fit a 8274, which in not only larger, but a totally different mount style winch.
This is the warm plate after it was extended forward by 2 inches, the face of it was completely replaced with a 3/8 peice, added 3/8 gusits, and added my 1'' thick D-ring tabs.
Then, I gave it a coating of industal black engine paint, scuffed the paint, and added dupicolor truck bed coating.
ANd here it is all mounted up on the stock bumper with the winch guard mounted. I had to space and angle the winch guard a bit too. Its also coated in the truck bed coating. Sorry for the crappy pics, my camera hates floresnt lighting, which is all I have in my garage.
