Default bumper design what do you think?

Hey everyone I am thinking about fabbing a bumper with a friend of mine and i have designed a few but I like this one best. It's not perfect in terms of mounting and such but I'm just trying to get a concept down.

Looks good...I like the tube myself but that should work out good....I like when they are kept clean and simple

The design is nice...
Curious about winch.
I have also seen a few that were nice but I always wonder how they would look with the fogs. I want new bumper but want to keep hid fogs.. That has been an issue for me..

I guess you could mount a winch under/behind the hoop depending on how the grill fits in with it. an I was wondering the same with the fogs.... the problem with the design now is that the fogs would point out at an angle. I guess that I would have to put a bracket on the back to point them straight

ok first i would make that tube stretch more so it sits closer to ur headlights and so if u wanted u can install aux lights under it and have it protect them and if u do this when u put aux lights on u can still see the ford emblom

no u will need to weld a metal tube where the fogs will go but cut that tube on one side at a angle so it matches the bumpers bend and ur fog lights will be striaght

and as for a winch see where it opens in the middle have him make that smaller and mount the winch behind the bumper and that hole will be where the wire comes out make the hole like 9 inches long so it is nice and open and have winch rollors so the wire don't rub on the bumper
