Hidden winch factory bumper with intercooler

Not much space behind front bumper on my 97 F350 7.3

Has anyone ever used a 99-03 Warn semi hidden winch mount on OBS ?

The 99-03 mount spaces the factory bumper forward a few inches.

Even with a couple inches doubt you would have room to intercool as well

I picked up a ranch hand style bumper that had the mounts cut out so that a winch could be mounted to it. The bumper has flat vertical tabs that mount to the outside surface (only) of each frame. Don't know if doing this would give you enough room or not.

Semi hidden

I guess I gotta fab up extensions for my factory bumper.

I really like the look of the OBS flat face and OEM bumper...

But I NEED a winch. Already stuck the truck in ice turning into buddy in CO steep driveway.

I also fish alot of private lakes in East TX and some don't have boat ramps.

I was going to build a Winch bumper for my old school Warn winch but, truck is already 18 feet long, i think that would put me over the legal length. LOL

99-03 Warn Semi hidden kit

Instrunctions for 99-03 say bumper is moved 5 inches forward.

Pic from Warn's website.



And a sharp looking new Ford with semi-hidden kit on this Forum.



Looks like Warn used either plastic or sheet metal (black) for gaps by grill and gaps by left & right fenders.

I beg to differ, here is my current daily driver. Driven to, Denver, Canyon City, and all Colorado Springs.

If I had the time I would unbolt my F250 bumper mock up some spray painted cardboard. Just to busy with work. I think a extended out front bumper would look cool and serve as a step when working in the engine bay.

there is tons of space

unless you added a intercooler, then probally not do able

but below the frame rails, could easly be adapted to a obs
