Looks good. I wonder what you are thinking about your Expedition One bumper now that you have had it a while. I'm trying to stay with a light weight build and it seems to be about the lightest out there. Without actually seeing one in person I am a little concerned it might be a little too light weight though.

Did you ever consider getting the fog light wings for it? I really like that the winch sits below the grill and I know I want to retain the fog lights. The added width is also a plus for me (thinking about traffic tickets.) They are also a local-ish company at about an hour north of me.

Thanks.

Sorry for the delay, I haven't been on here in a while. I like the Expedition One, it is a cheap and simple winch/armor option. It is far from your prettiest option, it is basically a pre-drilled bent piece of plate. The frame rail ends are completely exposed and since there is not top end you can see the sway and vac pump but I don't care, I think it gives a cool utilitarian look (glass half full guy haha). Fitment and recovery points are good. I didn't get the fog pods because of my low height and stock tires I wanted to keep the front clear for angled approaches. I also wired my windshield Hella's into the stock fog connections. I live in Mass where they are pretty strict and the troops have left me be (I currently don't have a rear bumper either so maybe I am just lucky haha). I am sure this is too late to help but maybe not.
