Is anyone making simple winch bumpers for these things?

Never mind... Clearly I can't explain it well enough...

Well, I didn't go to the corporate offices and knock on the door...but I didn't see such an animal on the website. But if you're aware of something I didn't see....

Recently picked up a '17 2500 diesel, and will be adding my Warn 12K winch to it. So I absolutely need a foot forward mount style, and I'm not really in to the modern 30 angle bumpers with a dozen lights on them being commonly made today.

Ideally I'd like something simple, like what we had on the older trucks in the picture. I get that some changes would likely have to be made due to modern body lines, but still want just simple like that. I can hand fab something if I have to, but I'll be busy for a while, so i could buy something ready to go, that would be better.
Not much available for a diesel without an entirely new bumper. How about something like this?

MAX WINCH TRAY BLACK

It's cheaper here:

I had planned on replacing the whole thing, just like the pictured one is. And that tray won't work with the winch, because I need a foot forward mounting style.

How's about adding a 2 inch front hitch and mounting the winch to a hitch plate?

That way, you could also use it on the back

Yes, Warn does make a very simple winch mount. Have them on my 1996 and 2021 2500. If you want a complete bumper, Bullet Proof out of Red Deer Alberta makes very good ones.

This Warn is packing a 16,500 pound Warn TSI winch.
