Default Front bumper/winch fabrication plans

Heys Guys:

Looking for some front bumper/winch fabrication plans for a 2000 tacoma. I would like the plans for a tube bumper/brush guard that will accomdate a winch. My son welds, if the proto type comes out good, then I am going to tell him to sell a few for cheap!! I would like detailed measurements length, curve angles, mounting brackets, etc..

did some research and found that trail gear sells a winch mount base.. Bolts right up to the stock bumper holes on the first gen 4runners and trucks.. Just weld on tubes as you want.. Requires frame bracing for heavy duty winching.. For $130 I may look into it..seems sturdy enough as they make it out of 1/4" plate

sorry broski nobody is gonna give you that stuff so you can make money on it. If your son welds and you guys have a tube bender have him build a few prototypes and go from there.
