Winch finally mounted proper

I put a hawes fairlead on as the roller wouldn't work with this bumper and I like my bumper.

I got a steel one from a guy on jeeps Unlimited. Gave me a good deal. Once I switch over to synthetic I'll get an aluminum fairlead.

jeeperx2, this bumper only cost me 80 bucks. Yours looks good. I'm going to fab a rear bumper this spring.

Local jeeper got two by accident so the vendor told him he could sell it and send the money instead of the vendor paying return freight and loosing some. I'll have to look but he is an ebay store guy. This bumper is almost identicle to the FAB TECH Rock bumper and in a side by side I couldn't tell the difference other than the ARB comes with a small skid plate and this one didn't. I'll add that when I do my rear bumper.

Here is the Fabtech. http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.aspx?partID=13129
300 bucks.

Hey Kg or AZ if you can find or remember who that ebay store guy was post up in here or shoot me a message. He dropped off "my ebay" and I haven't been able to find him since. I still want one of those bumpers.
