Yes, they will be making a bolt on hoop/winch guard. And if I'm not mistaken, they are working on prototypes now.

I'll be able to tell you the weight "shed" from a Hanson Front bumper to the Savvy in a couple of days... I expect it to be *substantial*...

Gerald said you were our test case for the installation instructions and if you can get it installed without screwing it up, anyone will be able to. If not, I have to go back to instruction writing school.

I choose to accept that as a compliment... You'd think I'd get a discount for being "least common denominator", litmus test for your instructions...

Nice! In looking at the inside of that new bumper, I can't even imagine its manufacturing process. Nice design Blaine & Gerald for sure.

And that REALLY sucks someone patented the dual rate swaybar engagement design you came up with.

When can we buy one!?! Sorry if this may sound dumb, but I'm assuming you still need a winch plate...or does the winch bolt to the bumper?

They are available on our website www.savvyoffroad.com and the winch plate, recovery points and light tabs are included in the special we have going on now.

Thanks,

Gerald

The bumper and fairlead mount form a winch deck when bolted together. I designed it to be a unitized structure and you have to run the fairlead mount if you run a normal foot down winch.

And I'll let you know the weight difference between this and my current stock bumper and Warn mounting plate.

I'm also not painting/coating the bumper, so I'll post up in a few years and show people that the winter road treatments won't do much to the appearance (as it hasn't on the aluminum gas tank skid I've already had for 3 years).

BUT, that fairlead CAN be Roller or Hawse on your mount, correct?

Either will work fine. Best if you have a Antirock or like product so the winch mount/deck can slide farther back and the fairlead is flush with the front of the bumper.
