Here's what I started with (stock bumper with Warn winch plate):

Those pictures show why I don't like long bumpers. My stock bumper prevented me from completing an obstacle on the trail this summer, and I've been shopping for a new one since then.

Here it is installed:

Nice looking bumper. How far does it stick out past the end of the frame? Is the winch deck just a flat piece of alum?

It might be 2" past the frame rails, but only because of the angle of the front piece.

A nice feature is that it works with anti-rock and stock sway bar, but it actually extends back to the grill, covering the space where the factory put that piece of plastic.

The winch deck is a piece of aluminum, but it's not entirely flat. You can see the curves behind the fairlead mount.
