Scout Looks good and kudos for getting out there and doing your own fab work.

I would like to know a little more about those shackle mounts though. If you really plan on using those as a recovery point then it needs to be the strongest point of the bumper. From the pictures it appers that the shackle is basically being held to the bumper by a strip of metal and the ends of the shackle bolt. I would think that you might have some interferance issues with the bolt swiveling up and down under load.

dwdrums801 the whole thingand the winch is 90 Lbs?!!?

jecaper I was a little worried about the possible weight, but it is less than 90 Lbs. I cut as much out as possible without sacrificing structure.

New Front Bumper

I Fabricated a custom front Bumper from a 48" long piece of 10x3x3/8" Steel Channel and 1/4" bent plate for the winch mount/ anchor.

It is extremely stout but is not much heavier than the rock crusher bumpers some of my buddies have. I was a little worried about the weight, but the strength made me less apprehensive.

I was able to attach it to the bumper at 4 places so it is extremely solid and I have no fears using it to winch or pull people from the mud.

Let me know what you think.
