Tomken winch plate/brush guard any good?

I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with the Tomken winch mounting plate with the built in brush guard? I just ordered one for my HS9500i. I am happy with the other Tomken products I own (gas tank and steering box skid plates). Thanks for the info. Rick

I have one. I like it. I also have the 2x4 rocker guards. Like them too.

They both can be made cheaper than bought from Tomken, but I would still buy the Tomken winch guard. I bought mine before I knew much about building things or even having things built(like I have to do now for lack of a welder). The Winch Guard is worth the money they ask, I think it is well under $100 last I checked. The bumpers can be built better by hand.

Thanks for the info. Tomken is now asking $150ish for their mounting plate. I agree about fabricating your own stuff. It is much cheeper. I built my front bumper last summer at my boss' shop and plan on building a rear bumper/tire carrier soon. Maybe a set of rocker guards as well. My arc welding does not look the greatest, but the satisfaction of doing it myself is worth it. Rick
