    Recessed winch

    Any body seen a bumper sold that is set up for this? Searching is tough. I see some custom ones but not for sale. Maybe a write-up I could follow?

    The goal is a more recessed bumper that would put the winch under the jeep or mostly under. I wouldn't even mind trimming the grill if needed a little. I don't have the skill or set up to fab something up for the bumper but there are plenty of local guys I could get help with a winch plate of some kind. Just wouldn't trust with the bumper.

    Something like this one on the River Raider jeep. They only sell the non-winch version though. Thoughts?

    37's and 2.5 lift

    Nobody attempted this? Maybe an access issue to the winch that people don't do it more often?

    Its a custom deal. You have a round tube crossmember under the radiator that must be removed along with the crash bar. This scares most people away from doing it, so it keeps mass production away. Find a local fab shop and give them a shot. Who wants what everybody has anyhow so have one made.

    I dont mind cutting but does anyone think it messes with the integrity of the frame as long as you replace it with a well attached bumper?

    Im still leaning towards this for the front and the rear requires I chop it off also.

    This is in progress in a stock bumper, did not have to cut the cross member.
    Did have to re-locate the vacuum pump,

    Looking good, make sure to post up when finished.

    I will prob do the same until I figure out the recessed - meaning the bumper is almost flush with grill.

    Need to obtain hinge for front plate , tie up wire for fogs & tighten a couple of nuts for tow hooks that have to be done with wrench due to space limitations & then it will be complete.
