Installed winch, is this too Mad Max-ish?
I got the winch done in time for the EMWF (Eastern Maine Wheel Fest) this weekend. At the same time I started adding guards as the trails are supposed to be TIGHT, lots of overgrowth. The brush guard was already there, installed by the previous owner, and it's welded to the 1/4" bumper.
Does this look too Mad Max-ish? It kinda does to me, but then again it's all function and no form. I added expanded metal to the turn signals, so they'll even survive a baseball bat (trees should pose no problems), the headlight guards I got from an electric stove someone was throwing out (nonstick coated aluminum), and you can just make out the expanded metal behind the grill. I hated seeing the faux pas (fake) expanded metal looking plastic and decided to do it right. I also mounted the winch on the front, and I'm putting the roller fairlead on tomorrow.
I'd like to hear the opinions.
Yes, the brush guard is a little low, it's due to the addition of the body lift. I'll attempt to raise it/build a better one later.
