Oh - I remember that pipe dream. Hope you have deep pockets!

You've held on to that idea for a while now. I'm wondering when you'll give up on it and just go conventional. Lots of better ways to spend your money, in my opinion.

Sorry for the tough love, but seriously.

I had a really hard time fishing bolts for my front hitch through the frame. I can't imagine trying to fish a winch cable through it, especially with that big cross tube up front.

I really liked the idea of being able to winch from the front or the rear, and only buying one winch. This is why I have a 2" receiver on my front bumper, and a 2" receiver mounted winch.

Having said that, if he wants to try it, I'll make whatever bumper he wants...
