Ive got an 03 Superduty and I would really like to have one of those road armor or iron bull winch bumpers for it but I just cant justify $3000 on a bumper.
So I got to thinking... I have a trailer hitch in my garage (mount it on the front) and I would also like a winch up front. I think I could just mount that trailer hitch up front and weld a heavy steel plate to the hitch for my winch mount. Then I could use sheet metal to make the bumper skin and rhino line it so it would like the road armor/iron bull bumpers. I know it will dent if I hit stuff but I think they look cool and this shouldn't cost me more then $100-$150.
Anyone think this would be a bad idea?
