winch plate

made myself a winch plate, sort of

looked around didn't find anything I like, so made one from scratch.

light and good approaching angle are goals.

if the stock bumper got bent, I can find another one easily and slide my winch plate on.

some pictures, start from cardboad mockups...

Nice work, just make sure any and all tow hooks are NOT visible in this thread.. And make sure you don't tell us that the winch was $300 ; )

That $300 winch is working great, and those Tow hooks..... well, they're in a cabinet somewhere ;-)


I was actually going to say this looks similiar to my winch plate, just nicer

Good job!
