Wheres all the 8274 Bumpers at?
« on: Nov 18, 2009, 11:56:12 AM »
I know some of you have first gens with 8274s lets see the pictures.  I'm hopefully building one over thanksgiving break  :beer:

I searched on here for 8274s and not a single thread was found.  So I'll break the ice with some I spotted of YotaJoshs and others I've seen on the interweb.  I'm basically set on doing one similar to YotaJosh's, but thought I'd add this for people who were contemplating using the best winch ever made on their trucks as well.  :beerchug:

I need to get some updated pictures of mine. I've capped the tube ends, made permanent blinker mounts (using the stock blinkers), and painted it hammered black.

The 4Runner in the snow above, and this pic below were my inspiration (with some touches of my own).



I know, that one is not a First Gen, but it has good lines.

Yeah, it's been a while, and I'm tearing out the cobwebs, but I don't want to start a new thread since one already exists... Plus my build is starting to move along, and I've got an 8274 I figured I'd throw out some ideas and see what the gen pop says   :muscles:

Here's some that I found online... I like most of them, but I was hoping to get some input and direction before I send off any CAD designs to my CNC shop..




The other images I found, I really didn't like the look of them, but that one is one I could live with... Except I'd like mine to be inside this bumper I'm designing right now:



Now... I've also heard of a couple people mounting them behind the cab, on the driver's side, and running a pipe on the inside of the frame rail, and just having a fairlead on the bumper. It would mean that I would have a pretty cool "Hidden" winch except for the fairlead on the front bumper... But it would also mean that I'd have to have a snatch block permanently under my truck, as well as "forcing" me to figure out how to convert the clutch to a pneumatic piston..  :headshake: Probably the least desireable for my build...


Any more ideas?

Not a fan of that bumper.... makes me think of a tow truck... not to mention all that weight up front.....

Of the bumper I'm designing or the bumper on the yota?

I really like the look of the Warn bumper:



So I wanted to emulate that but customize it to hold my 8274.

Well, I got a bit of work done. welded a new core support, then cut out the old one so that I can get the winch further back..
The welds aren't really pretty, but I'm pretty happy with them... I only blew through once  :flamer: haha




So that's how it ended up... Bumper is coming... Just gotta figure out a final design..

... Bumper is coming... Just gotta figure out a final design..[/size]
For a one off bumper, it will be easier to design a two piece, i.e., winch cradle, then bumper that mounts to or over the cradle.

That's a really great idea! Along those lines, I could have the winch cradle bolt to the top of the crossmember, and then have the bumper bolt to the front and sides with the fairlead on the front of the bumper... Never thought of that! It'd also help protect my rad from front impacts, being separate from my bumper...

Great idea, how'd you think of that? See it somewhere?

While I doubt I am the only one to think of it, for me it came about from a practicality and safety standpoint.  I had already designed and built an adjustable jig for my plate bumper design, when I was asked to build one for a winch.  Not being an engineer, nor having access to CAD programming, figuring out the additional mounting points for a winch bumper wasn't something I wanted to attempt, not to mention the safety issue involved, so I figured it would be easier to buy an off the shelf winch plate and modify it and my bumper to work together.

I designed my bumper so I could remove the winch without removing the bumper(it's welded on). the winch plate(cradle) stays put and the removable center "cage" completes the bumper by bolting vertical plates together. the blurry pic is the only one I have with the winch out
