I just got my Iron Bull bumper. I expected a winch plate/mounting bracket inside the bumper....theres nothing. Anybody have any idea where i bolt the winch to? Do i have to fab my own mounting plate/bracket? This sucks. I feel ripped off for ordering a "winch bumper" that has no place to mount the winch....it has the fairlead cut out but no mounting surface inside. Thoughts?

I figured it out. I feel dumb. The winch actually mounts upside down (90 degrees) and to the inside front of the bumper.

Heres where it goes. I thought it would mount flat...not laying on its "back" but it doesnt matter..still pulls the same i guess

Got the Iron Bull bumper installed. Went fairly smooth. Grade 8 1/2 inch nuts n bolts. Had to open the holes a tad. Not really happy with the gap behind the headlight. Its about an inch gap. Oh well.

Heres my favorite mod....i drilled a couple little holes in the bumper and fabbed a new bracket for the control box so i dont have to crawl under it to plug my temote in..

looks really good, did the gap end up closing up better?

Yes. I shimmed the bottom bolts with three washers and that closed the gap nicely.
