Default Prerunner Winch Bumper

My buddy and I are trying to build a prerunner style tube bumper for the front of my truck. The challange is we're also trying to mount a winch to it. We were looking at it last night and are trying to come up with ideas, but are having trouble with space without choping the front up and rewelding a bunch of stuff. Ive looked for others like this but cant seem to find any. Has anyone else seen one simular to this style? Im just looking for ideas. Thanks

This is the goal. But I'm having trouble figuring out how to mount it. This picture is old and the bumper was photoshopped onto this truck. I have no idea how to find the original truck to check out the build.

Bam.



Oh, and



I never got pictures of his truck myself, but Chris and I went to the same college so I had already seen his truck a million times before.

Thanks man. I'm building my bumper now and I was going to try and replicate this idea. Do you know if it was bolt on or welded? I'm trying to keep it bolt on as much as possible.

No problem, I remember a lot of the old rangers.

My best old man voice:
Back in my day I remember when Rangers were modified past the point of plasti-dip & t-bar cranks.

I'm pretty sure it was bolt on. Looks like it bolted on at the bottom of the frame.

Thanks everyone for your help. I'm pretty good at remembering who's who when it comes to these trucks. That's how I found the yellow truck. I remembered that guy pat photoshopping it. My only problem is that doesn't work if I never knew who the truck belonged to.

I wish he lived closer to me so I could get you better pictures. I haven't seen his truck in person since college.

It's cool dude. I appreciate the help. I've been trying to find ways around cutting out the crossmember, but it's looking like I don't have much choice really.
