Description
 
A new version of our popular plate bumper, but with a hidden winch mount for those who want a clean look but still want a winch. We utilized the space behind the bumper to fit the winch* between the frame horns. Yes, this exposes the winch drum a bit but it also allowed us to keep our bumper high and tight so it didn't over power the classic look of the Bronco front end. All winch mounting points are hidden, this means no unsightly bolts on the top side of the bumper for a completely smooth finished look. The mounts also face forward, this means no matter how hard you're winching you can't tweak or destroy the bumper. This mounting also keeps the clutch lever facing towards the rear instead of down where it could easily get damaged if hit just right.

Fabricated of 3/16" plate steel with 1/4" end plates (with etched JD logo), frame mounts and gussets, putting strength where needed to avoid too much weight. Options include shackle mounts (also can be used for tow bar mounts), jacking points and a center hoop**. Note that all exterior welds are ground on these for an extra clean look. This design will NOT fit on a Bronco without a body lift. You must have a minimum of 1" body lift to mount this bumper with a winch installed. Fits 1-2" body lift without modification. Shown on Hobby Horse with 3/4" body lift. We have found that synthetic rope is more user friendly with this bumper but cable can still be used. The biggest thing you have to be mindful of is not letting it bunch up in one area when spooling back in.

Ships bare. We will contact you with shipping rates.

*Please call or email to verify if your model of winch is compatible. We have fit checked several winches for fitment: Warn XD9000, Warn VR8000 &10000, Warn M8000 and the Badlands 12K. These are all non-integrated style winches (with the controllers movable) We've only built a few ahead because we are still testing other winch models. If you're curious if your winch will work you can go to warn.com and look for a schematic drawing that gives all the dimensions of the ones we have checked and compare yours to those dimensions. We know for a fact that the Warn 8274 and all Integrated style winches will not fit.

-All exterior welds are ground perfectly smooth, this is no easy feat. Base material is much softer than a mig weld. If you're not careful, a grinding or flap disc will dig into the base material before the mig weld and cause dips and weak spots in the bumper. We spend the time to smooth out the welds without weakening the bumper.

Standard Feature of All of our Bumpers:
- Our frame mounts utilizes three holes on the frame horn. Two simply aren't enough for heavy winching.
- Reinforced jacking points.

The base model can have shackle mounts and a hoop added for a small fee or you can buy the accessories and weld them on yourself.

-All of our bumpers are laser cut, bent and assembled right here in Tennessee! We try to keep most styles in stock, many times you can have the bumper shipped the very next day.

**Available with a center hoop option. It has two light tabs spaced for a pair of round lights or up to a 13" light bar. Please note that having us weld on the hoop adds about double to the cost of freight, depending on where you are located. As an alternative, we offer the DIY option of the hoop separately, this will also allow anyone with one of our bumpers already to retrofit it.
