I have a RN bumper with a Husky 10. I had a temporary pad eye used in the shipyard that I welded to the front to make a hook attachment. I used two 9 ft lengths of 1/0 welding wire from ABCO to run to the batteries. I strongly recommend using 10 to 10.5 ft. 9 ft was JUST enough. I bought 2, 9 ft lengths and 2, 1 ft lengths to parallel the batteries and the bill was $98! Copper is not cheap. I would check eBay. Last time I looked you could get 100ft rolls for about the same price. You know though, time is money, and I didn't plan ahead and buy it before I had the time to do it.

I DONT know if it would fit, but I certainly like the Equipe4x4/Scorpion Racing bumpers...They mount really high up for clearance, made of a beefy tube, have jacking points and are cool looking--I wish I had seen those before I made mine, it would have changed my thinking...http://www.equipe4x4.com/inglese/ART...UMPERS&NFOTO=3

the bumper in the goodwinch link reminds me of the ARB with a better approach. I think Rovernorths was selling that bumper a while back callin it the Z-Bar or something?

I just bought a bearmach winch bumper from DAP.
It' s heavy duty, 1/4" thickness, so i think it can handle
a husky. Price also is good (400 USD, about 60 USD for S&H).
Two weak points: fitting was not very simple (well, it's a LR thing...)
and coating of bumper is not top quality. But design of the bumper
is very simple so it's smart and it looks good.

So, that the combination: BA3093B Winch Bumper for Defender + BA3093D Brush Bar for Winch Bumper ?

Folks, any reason why 99.9% of the bumpers I see do not have a small "return" to protect the front part of the front fenders? I can totally picture myself touching a tree/rock with the tip of the bumper and sticking it just after that into my fender.... I have to say that idea is not so appealing.

Seems like many of the Rovers that get wheeled and have that bumper return end up with the bumper bent into the fender.

I have seen too many jeeps with a (small but big enough) tree stuck between the bumper and the (front) of the fender to still think there has to be a better way!
Maybe a (much?) stronger return?
