Heavy Duty Bumpers. Need pics

I am deciding on putting a full bumper on my truck because I have a winch laying around the house and want to put it on the truck. I have the ranchhand brushguard right now and have looked at the ranchhand full bumper replacement but dont like how much it sticks out. I also have pursued the buckstop bumpers.

My favorite so far is the HD full warn bumper due to the minimal sticking out.

Could you post some pictures of your bumpers and give me any insight you might have?

Thanks

One nice thing about a bumper that sticks out a little more is you can stand in it while working on the motor. If the bumpers are tucked in close then its a pain to work on the truck because you have to reach over it. That's why I've continued to run ranchhand style bumpers.

Have you had a chance to look at the Fusion Bumpers built by a small company in Idaho? They're pretty sweet and don't stick out much at all.

Have you looked at iron cross or boondock? Both look pretty snug to me.

I personally find those styling ugly. The best around is Road Armor and the best looking.

Though it is one of the most expensive, it does save lives and I believe can support up to a 12,000lb winch.
