Installed the new Poison Spyder Brawler...

I ordered a Poison Spyder "Brawler Lite" front bumper then did a little chop and reweld on it.
I started with removing the fog light wells and cut them down by four inches so I could get a better flood pattern with my fog lights, then removed the two center gussets and cut them down to allow the winch to set inside the bumper, after two weeks of trimming and custom fitting everything it was ready for me to paint.
I took it to the shop and painted it to match the jeep and black texture sprayed the inside of the light wells. I still need to mount my hawse fairlead (it will mount just below the bumper to line up with the winch) and I also have a new Amsteel blue winch line with a safety thimble on the way!!

Wow, that is subtle with the winch mounted underneath like that. Are you going to remove the factory chin gaurd on the frame?

No plans for removal, really no need to remove it, but what I did do was notch it so I could rotate the lever....

I like what you've done to your bumper, especially moving the fog lights forward so they are more flush with the front of the bumper. The fog light mounts are normally so deeply inset that you loose all of the wide angle benefit of fog lights.

Here is a photo of a stock Poison Spyder Brawler Lite bumper, for comparison. It also shows what else I have done to my bumper. I cut off that factory chin gaurd, which lets me rotate my swaybar disconnect motor up and out of the way, gaining a little over 2" of ground clearance under the motor. Then I installed a "Rubi Skid" from Expedition one, which gives the bottom side of the bumper a nice clean appearance that has better clearance, and is more protected. Just another option to think about, ... don't know if the Rubi Skid would work with the winch under there.
