Default Custom bumper ideas

ok, so i want to fabricate a new bumper myself, i have some idea of what i want it to look like, but i just wanted to see if there are any tips or tricks that i should know before i undertake this venture.

i do have a couple of questions:
1. Can i use the stock bumper mounts for a larger (probably heavy) winch bumper?

2. what would you recommend for designs (i like the angled/plated look, kinda like the F-117 stealth fighter).

3. what materials should i use (would mild steel be acceptable)?
