    If it is any consolation, I am needing to put a winch on my truck, but can't seem to find the $2K needed to do so by either 1) a new front bumper replacement, or 2) a Full-Race CAC and hidden winch mount.

    Good god that thing is ugly. Was it built by the A-Team?

Their design raises the winch up to leave the OEM CAC opening unrestricted.

    Pretty sure that one is function over form. (rare these days since our trucks are very much a fashion statement, as well as our truck)

    It definitely looks like it was designed to get the job done no matter what. BEEF

    I was looking for this solution also. i decided on this bumper: DV8 bumper that houses a winch. I need more intimidation. It seems like everyone wants to either cut you off or make illegal left turns into you. it happened again, 2 weeks ago. Name:  M144004514.jpg

    Are you upgrading the CAC with a Full Race version that relocates the CAC behind the grill? If not, you might want to start saving for the Full Race kit because that bumper will block all airflow to your OEM CAC.

    I wish you luck.
