Plated Front bumper build

I started my bumper this week, my first cardboard mock up died when i left it on the truck out side and it got raind on, but it gave me the look I was looking for, also I didnt want to have a winch hanging out on the front so I installed a reciver and I will attach the winch to that,I really like the look of the plated bumper so when I started mocking up I noticed that i was unable to install the pin and key on the recever , so i disigned a spring loaded pin that can be reached from the passenger front wheel well.

Both of those look badass.


Is there a build thread on this? This what I want to do but I'm worried about measuring for the winch that I don't have yet.

I like the spring loaded pin idea - pretty ingenious!

I was just thinking the same thing. I know I wouldn't have thought of something like that. Looks good, man.

I hope that any one who does not want to permanently mount their winch up front and tries to build a clean plated bumper will incorporate the pin design that I copied off of a cookie machine I did some electrical work on last summer.
mmmmmm.. Big granny B's cookies.

Thanks to all that replied, This is a great forum!
