Yes it's $265.00 (plus S&H) for the backbone system.

OPTIONS:
175.00 (plus S&H) for the pre-runner and 22.50 (plus S&H) for light bar.

A metal winch bumber will be tougher , but on the other hand you'll be adding ALOT
MORE WEIGHT to the front end . With this system you have a tough towing
point for the winch and d-ring but not the extra weight........I don't want
that exra weight , plus XJ winch bumpers stick out to far in the front , so this is the system for me.......

You won't see us building anything like that any time soon. It would require alot of field testing before we would be willing to sell it comfortably and offer a lifetime warrenty on it. The winch has alot of leverage on the mounts, as well as the dring tabs. It would alot stronger as a one peice stamp, but in one of the pics you can see where they ground down a weld for the mounts. This maybe just a protype, but That would be my biggest concern with it. And the price :o

Our winch bumper sits less then 10"(including the length of the dring tabs) off the front of the Jeep. Most winch bumpers on the market are at about 13" just to the face, and further if they include dring tabs.

We just changed our winch bumper configuration around, and now you can get one for $369.

the kicker for me is that I want my jeep to look nice as well, You guys have great looking bumpers, but I really like the stock bumper look.
