39 pound minimalist YJ winch bumper

2x4" 3/16 tube, 1/4" winch plate, 1/4" 1" wide rear support, TMR customs fairlead and Barnes lower tabs with 1/4" spacer because there was a gap between the frame and the bottom of the bumper. Then por15'd the whole thing and Herculined over it. It was cheap simple and weighs next to nothing as far as winch bumpers go. Cost me less than $100 to make probbaly more like $80 the most expensive piece was the $40 TMR fairlead.

Right now my XD9000 and bumper weighs about 120 pounds. If i changed to synthetic rope and aluminum fairlead i think i could get the weight down to about 90ish pounds.
