Need Help with this Mopar Bumper

I got a deal on this older Mopar bumper $200 and I decided to fix'er up. It didn't come with the crush can covers so I'm just going to saw the crush cans off and throw some mbrp shackle mounts on there instead.



It should look something like this when done. I'll throw some bed liner on her to to make her look real niace'n purty.



Problem is though, I want to mount a 20" CREE Led light on the top of the bumper but the only problem is that there is a huge hole where the winch goes.

I'm in need of an L shaped bracket bar about 20 inches long to make it work.

Does anybody know where I can find steel parts as such or even better yet what would you do in this situation?

An no I'm a dad now so there won't be a winch happening in that spot anytime soon.

I want to mount it around this area. Here is a crapola photochop mock up below.

Get an old bed rail and cut it to size. They are a "L" shaped and should be good for your project.

Maximus III has a mounting kit for around $35 bucks and you will just need to drill a couple of holes.
It's made to work with the 10A/X/HardRock bumper and should work fine for you since your bumper is somewhat similar for the winch.

Talking Simple Solution

I think the easiest and probably cheapest solution for you would be to look on EBay for a set of mounts that clamp on that upper bar. I saw several when I was looking for my 20" light. The light mounts slide the length of the light bar so you do not have to find anything exactly 20 inches. Measure the diameter of the bumper bar and I am sure you wil find some. Look up LED light mounting brackets. Here is one to get you started:
