My shop is finally wired and plumbed so I'm hoping to have a few mounts up for sale soon. Thank you for all the interest and kind words. Still working on pricing and shipping costs. If anyone in the Seattle area is interested in a prototype fitting, espescially if you have a stock bumper, please pm me. Thank you.

Do you have a drawing of all the mounts and the thickness of materials/type used in it? Like where the steering and pass side is tied in?

Sorry guys, still here, still trying to get these mounts going. Just got my Jeep repaired after an accident way back in September! Here's a couple pics of the front with no bumper.

Baddad that mount/brace system is unbelievable. Bravo. You could sell a ton of these if the price is right.

This mount looks great but as was said before I think that much cutting turns me off to the installation. The oem accessory mounted without cutting, the bumper stuck out a bit but I kinda like it. Reminds me of the federalized bmws of the same erA.

That's freaking awesome.

Should sell like hot cakes. Wish it was available when I bought my winch bumper. I will keep it in mind for my next build.

Happy Jeepin'

Please let me know if you are making these mounts. I would like to get one for my Jeep Comanche that I am building.

Thanks, Phil

Iíve ordered a cnc plasma table That should be here by the end of June. Iím hoping to get some mounts made up and for sale by the end of August. Between work, some health issues and having to replace my rotting deck this summer, itís gonna be tight tho. Anyone in the Seattle area wanna do some deck work in trade for a winch mount? 😋

When is the deck going in? I am in San Francisco and have a stock bumper with tow hooks installed. I could use a long drive, and a hidden winch mount. I love the design!!

Why not just make it a bumper as well? I just read a few threads the other day when I was researching using d rings with a stock bumper. Your design is excellent as well. These are the other two I was reading.
https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f58/st...-build-182923/
https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f58/hi...-build-146522/

i think it would be best to build it also as a bumper and maybe instead of just a stubby add some pieces that extend out under the header on both sides for some added protection. The other thing about using a stock bumper over over one of these is how would one go about actually mounting the bumper when the holes for the factory brackets are already in use.
