Best place to buy Smittybuilt SRC Bumper/winch?

Hey guys, I'm currently in parts buying mode for the gift jeep for my uncle when he returns home from Iraq/Afghanistan later this year. So far you all that have been answering my PM's have been a great help, I appreciate it. I did some research but came up empty, I thought it'd be best to ask you all's opinion on this one.

He wants the Smittybuilt SRC bumper (tube style) and winch put on as well. I was wondering where you all found the best/cheapest place to buy the bumper from?

Also, I run a Warn 9000 on my SAS'ed Explorer, but I can't justify putting one of these on the Jeep, especially when it isn't going to crawl as much .
I saw the $319 deal for the LP8500, though I know nothing about SuperWinch, can you all give me your thoughts on that?

Again, sorry for the n00b questions. Any input is greatly appreciated. I'll start a build thread when all the parts come in!

-Brandon

X2 Amazon. Amazing prices and free shipping. On top of that customer service is second to none. We thank your Uncle for his service and glad he is coming home safe.

Purchased from Amazon, Couldn't beat the free shipping :P

Thanks fellas!!

Real fast.. The SRC bumper comes with the standard 8,000lb winch mounts correct? Or will I need to buy a plate / drill my own?

(yes I realize I spelled it wrong, SmittyBilt** lol.)

Crap, I was hoping it would...

If you happen to have any, would you mind shooting me some pictures of your design? I'm assuming I'll have to use the two torx screw bumper mounts and possibly one or both of the sway bar mounting bolts?

This one's going to be tricky to make right!

I see you have the XRC (i think) style bumper.. I ordered the SRC, tube style bumper from them.

Just so we're all on the same page; I'm under the impression the SRC bumper does NOT come with a winch plate to mount the winch on. I see Smittybilt makes one for +/- $70, which I think is ridiculous for like $5 of metal.. So I'm going to try and make my own first.

Am I correct? I can't find anyone on here that has the bumper w/ winch to ask :/

$&*@!!! That sucks, I already ordered it from Amazon, lol.

By chance, does anyone have a home made winch mount pics to give me some ideas?

Here ya go! Just measured out a plate by the width of the frame, added a length of angle and notched it out for the roller fairlead. Drilled 2 holes in the angle to use the top bumper bolts, bolted the winch on then welded it to the frame.

I ordered the SRC style from Amazon 10 days ago. I've received no tracking number, only a verification email of payment received and a separate one for order shipped.

They said 10-15 days until delivery, If I don't get it by the 28th I'm going to start tracking this order down..
