    Get one made up by a fab shop. I bet it would be cheaper.

    I sent them an email,,probably will not hear anything till monday or tuesday. As for the fabing of of one, the local offroad shop said that it would not cut holes in the frame horns(something about warranty)? I am not home to see what is under the bumper so I am not sure what they are talking about. I get most info second hand from the wife. She is trying to get this done before I rotate home in a few weeks.

    The fabtech bumper can't support a winch by itself? I thought most aftermarket ones could... If you plan on getting a new bumper why not get one that can handle a winch?

    The one i wanted did not have the winch plate incorporated into the bumper, thus, looking for one that fits,,there are plenty. Funny thing,,a bumper with attached winch plate will cost as much or more as buying them indvidually,,,,,even the guys at Quadratec were scratching heads at the cost...
