how many would buy a winch bumper?

i'm curious how many of you would buy a bumper.

i'm going to start the proto-type around mid- february.

it will offer:
-more ground clearance
-lower profile then the stock bumper
-include a brush gaurd
-include a hidden winch
-tow loops on the front

it will be able to house either a warn winch or a super winch. 9000 lbs capacity.

i'm thinking there will be two models available:

one including: (overland edition )

-bumper of course
-brush gaurd
-tow loops
-hidden winch mounting options
-black or silver power coatings
-hardware and instuctions for install
-skid plate from the bumper to the radiator support.

priced between $900-1100

and the second: (sport model )

-bumper
-tow loops
-you paint it or whatever
-hardware and instuctions for install
$500-700

now the only thing i'm trying to figure out, is the windshield reservoir bottle hangs down below where i'm planning on making the bumper. so it may need to be moved up about 1 inch. which would make it easier to fill it.


i may make it possible to custom order for a few more dollars.

thanks-

just a heads up. if these do well, i plan on building a rear bumper with a tire carrier, and some real rock rails for the rockers.

the rear bumper will have:

integrated swing out tire carrier with a shovel holder, and high lift mount, and jerry can holders. it will also have tow loops built into it.

Winch capability is a must for me. Commander is pretty stock and it may need the occasional help.
