So I have always liked the look of the ARB winch bumpers for the XJ. Problem is, I could never justify spending $900 on a bumper :shock:

I'm pretty happy so far. My SmittyBilt winch is going to fit nicely and be totally hidden behind the bumper. Frame tie in plates and the winch tray will be made from 3/16. The bumper itself is 10 ga (.1345 thick). Probably throw a couple rectangular lights on it, paint it and call it good.
I'm just dreading all the finish grinding I have to do :?
