Well I don’t do anything half @$$. It’s full send or nothing at all. My bumpers are 2X6 1/4” wall rectangular tube. The hitch receivers are welded back and front of the tube. Recovery points are 1X 3 solid Bar stock welded front and rear of the tube. Winch can plug in front or rear of truck. Fed by a 1/0 welding cable on a 500 amp fused connection. Have a set of 20’ #2 welding cable jumper cables I can just plug into bumper. System works really well. Frame reinforced about 12-14” back from bumper mounts with 2X6 1/4” plate. Reinforcing steering gear mounts also. Have had the front end about 4 foot off the ground hanging from big tree testing the bumper and winch mounting. The little end Caps are 1/2 X6 plate. Have bounced them off a few trees and rocks. They do what they were built for no body damage.
