I have the same lights waiting to be installed. Did you have to go that deep with the bumper for a winch? None the less, it looks good so far.

Yes I had to give the bumper some depth because of the winch. I think its about the same as an ARB. I guessing that the bumper will be about 90-100 lbs with out the winch. I cant wait to see what it looks like with the stinger. Im also going to so the same thing as another member and use the stock fog light holes for my turn signals. With that being said if any of you have a 05 + sport with out the fog lamps let me know, you pay shipping and there yours.

I really like that!
Do you have any increased noise due to not covering the tire all they way with the bumper?
Also, do you think that a front hitch could be incorporated?

Nice. I am personally a less is more type of guy, but I'd buy a bumper like that before an ARB for sure. I think I would have angled the ends of it though. Cut those side parts outside the D-ring shackles tabs in half at an angle and that baby would be super purdy. What is the hoop on the inside of the end of the stinger for?

looks great, how long did it take to build, you have put in alot of effort and came up with
something that no one else has, bonus points for the creativity, well done.
