Bobbed frame on front of Fronty

Bobbed the frame today in anticipation of building a bumper. I used some plate but before I welded it onto the end of the frame, I welded some 2x3 box to the back side of each plate, then smacked the boxed part of the plate into the frame end with a hammer. I figured a little extra frame material was a good thing because after hacking the ends off the frame, I could see that the metal that Nissan used is very thin. I have a winch and mount that I want to use, but it is hard to make it look right. I still need to work on placement of the mount.

What are you thinking of doing to take up all the extra space? how about a pic of your entire rig? Looks nice from the front.
