Cool Winch Mount Options

Hey all - I just picked up the 2018 in my sig a few weeks ago that will eventually replace my 2014. Since I'm not going to have the plow on this one I figure I've got an opportunity to mount a winch on the front. The Warn 16.5TI looks like the obvious choice but I'm undecided on how to mount it. Anyone seen any really cool options?

The truck is True Blue two-tone with a lot more chrome than I'm used to (bumpers, grille, mirrors, door handles, side steps) so I'm leaning towards not mounting a giant black bumper but I'm open to opinions and inspiration.

What have you all seen out there?

I like the looks of the AEV winch bumpers but they are pretty pricey.

I went with Backwoods bumpers for mine, a bit pricey but I definitely like the look and craftsmanship that went into the bumper. I now welcome the random POS's who can't drive to run into the bumpers.

Get someone to powdercoat it in whatever color you want. I'm struggling with finding the right bumpers for my white Bighorn, but have found a couple of places that will either coat it white, or provides it bare metal so I can get it coated myself.

Aluminess Bumpers and Truck Defender Bumpers both make a polished aluminum winch bumper that looks amazing. But since Iím not made of money I went the cheap route and installed the Westin Max winch tray and bull bar.

Thanks for the replies guys. Looks like there's more good options than I thought.

I'm glad you posted the picture of the Westin Max on your truck. It looked a little strange on the web site but it looks real nice installed.

That Mercenary one is pretty sweet too...gotta do the rear to match it though...

Dozens of choices Bumper style or brush guard style. Shop around. Some bumpers are much heavier than others and tougher too. Consider all for your application.
Google all and Google images for good pics.

Since you have a laramie in your sig, there's a good chance you have parking sensors. Keep that in mind while doing your shopping.
