Yup, winch and lights are in the plans.  Winch will either be a rebuilt Warn (rebuilt by the same guy who did the bumper) or a Smittybilt.  I'm planning to put some LED cubes about where the turn signals are.  (I intend to relocate the turn signals to the stock marker light location once I get a new passenger side headlight housing.)  As for blueprints, I don't have any; it was made by hand with some parts being done over half a dozen times to get the bend that looks best.  He put a lot of time into it.  When I take it off to paint, I can take lots of pictures of all the mounting stuff (it's 100% bolt on) and any measurements you would like, just let me know.

 

Oh, and thanks, I think it looks pretty good too!

UPS guy wasn't too happy, but it looks like the Q will be looking a lot more aggressive by the weekend!   :lmao:

Love the way your truck is coming out. Dont let too much time go by before you paint the bumper! Looks like the welds are already pretty oxidized.

Yeah, it's definitely getting some rust already.  I'm planning to do it next weekend since I'll be camping this weekend.  I'll probably be doing the hubs and CV shaft as well as studying for exams in between coats, so it'll be a busy weekend.

 

Edit: Oh, and thanks, 'preciate it!
