Let's Talk 2nd Gen. Front Bumper Area Wants?

Great to see the 2nd gen parts we were harassing you about. Not sure I'd want a full bumper, but more of a frame mounted center piece with a winch. So I guess more like 3. Can't commit on a purchase right away though, as I am still currently without a full time job.

I like the way Stic-o has his winch mounted. I would like to see some other pics and a write up on it.

I like number 4 but with d rings
 


















I like #1 and #2 because the winch is hidden between the frame rails. but i also like #4 as a front bumper. i would like to see a design with a mix of #1 and #4 together.
 






here is my front bumper on II gen. it's ready for winch.

I like #4 with a pre-runner front like Stic has.

i would like to see a kit with this design, with adjustable mounting brackets for body lifts, lower tabs for a skid plate, and cut outs or mounts for aux lights
:popcorn:
 












Wow, I want that bumper. Where did you get it Rad? It looks amazing.:salute:
 






North Carolina plates?

Haha no that's a photoshop error - this is the original (minus my plate #):

Pretty much what I'm looking for is what boominXplorer has here, only I'd prefer one that bolts on, rather than cutting and welding:

I also like an incorporated skidplate like PAExplorer has:

Basically I'm interested in a minimalist but strong bumper. I don't want a 400 pound steel box on the front of my truck. BUT, I have a 3" body lift so any bumper I make/buy/whatever MUST be compatible with that lift...
 






it's of course custom made.

some pictures - making of...

Ah memories :D http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=211624

I'm liking the RCB-U bumper. Maybe flesh it out a bit more? I'm tired of my Sport bumper. Can't access my tow hooks, bottoms out on everything, fogs aren't waterproof, etc...

I'm also a fan of just the hidden winch mount. I can always grab a pre-99 bumper from the pick-n-pull or LMC Truck.
