Bad ass Custom winch bumper / pics added with rock rails**

Here are some pictures of the front bumper we built for Grumpy.
The grill is cut so the winch mounts behind the grill for a flush mount. The control box is hidden behind the grill aswell.


Before:











New bumper was made to follow the same line as the Factory bumper.

bumper/winch mount is cleanly built. i like the stealth look for the winch.

rock rails look good also. tucked nicely to the body for as little loss of ground clearance while still providing ample protection.

Gotta let my wallet get over that feeling of loneliness for a while first


Going tear the top end off the motor this winter and then worry about axles next year. My wife got wind of how much I put in to the commando this year and is just a wee bit pissed. Specially since her chevelle has needed a 12 bolt and posi for years.
