Winching with Bumper Extensions

Does anybody do this? I just bought some off Ron to finally mount my winch bumper that has been sitting since 2011. After getting it all together it just looks precarious. I'm sure it's fine but it just seems ghetto despite being a factory thing for the vehicles with the a/c radiator surround.

Which bumper did you get?

Mantec makes bumpers for trucks with or without the extended grill so you don't need extensions.

It is a bumper I had extreme4x4 in the UK make when I lived there. Not attached to it. Just want to know if anybody winches with the extensions and what their thoughts are on that scene. I have a feeling I may end up going the mantec version for A/C in the future. I like the way this bumper looks on the truck currently.

Depends on how quality they are. I commissioned a few of them from Matt @ Rockware for a customer, he was impressed with them. We also have some made for our own bumper, which I wouldn't have any issues using personally.

No its just a regular boxy type. Nothing special.

Maybe this shot helps. It just seems like a bumper on a bumper like some Xzibit meme.

I take you will be adding to that bracket (that's floating in air in your picture) that bolts to the chassis where the lash down eye is?

Would not want to rely on just the four bumper bolts.

If I decide to keep it on the extensions, yes. Not sure the best way to do so. I think a Mantec is a better option in the end. This setup just seems like a lot of unnecessary bolts.

Lucky8 Llc. - Take the road less traveled... Is this the right Mantec that will involve not cutting anything?

How much force do you expect a recovery to exert on a bumper that would sever double shear four grade 8 bolts?

^^^

Nearly every D1/D2/RRC is running only 4 bolts. I haven't yet seen/heard of one of those shearing off. And I've seen some sheet

Yes, that's at SCARR, and yes, that's 3 winches on 3 vehicles pulling one truck
