    Many many thanks to Detours for taking the extra time to take all these pictures, transfer them to the computer, then e-mail them out. Truly above and beyond!!!


    Recovery points if you don't love them you will.
    The top of the bumper hasn't been notched yet.



    All the BIG bumper's "D" shackles are big.


    This is an image prior to the bottom plates being added.


    The other end of the recovery point.


    Ok plates all in. Top is notched. This thing is getting close.

    You think this is a lot of pictures, wait until I get the bumper, paint it and install it on my Jeep!

    Looks very sturdy. What have you picked out for a winch?

    I read somewhere he's planning the Superwinch EPi 9000, being a previous owner of one, I can tell ya they're a nice unit.

    Yep yep, Superwinch EP i 9.0 Winch.



    http://superwinch.com/EPi9_9_000_lbs.html

    I was looking at various brands, not knowing ANYTHING about winches. Mark at Detours recommend the Superwinch, so I read a few things about them and decided that was the way I was going to go. The bumper is actually built for this winch and model. Others may fit, but Mark asked which winch I was going to use prior to building the bumper.

    Yeah I liked the design but went with MileMarker as they had a bigger winch for a cheaper price and I think a bigger winch may be needed in the gumbo mud I have experienced.

    Isn't milemarker very good just slower than Warn and Superwinch?
