Default Bumper build ideas

Wanting to build something along the lines of a ranch hand bumper with a bold look but a lower profile. Anyone got any ideas ? I know I want a wench tow hooks and lights. I work in a fab shop I want to start drawin it up this week. I haven't found any aftermarket bumpers I really like any pics for ideas would be great!

You might want to check local and state laws. As well as your spouse or girlfriend. Im not sure a wench would be feasible in this situation ;-)

No need to check laws I'm sure I will get a driving award if I do something wrong. As for the girlfriend she is pretty cool.

Car_Ram_Rod - the joke is that what you want is a wInch, instead of a wEnch.

There are quite a few people on this forum with custom bumpers. Just spend some time looking through pictures and you're bound to find a design you like. If you haven't searched yet, try that too. I kinda remember a couple of custom bumper threads in the last 2-3 years.

just google the style of bumper you want, be it a plate road armor style bumper or a tube prerunner style and give those pics to your company. They should easily be able to adapt a picture to fit your truck.
