    Not trying to educate anyone in the art of egg sucking, but heres some info. I had an old L200 and fitted a nice arb winch bumper to it, got it well and truly bogged at work one day. Super winch to the rescue! errr no. The bumper seems to making nice progress across the wood, leaving the truck behind. When I had it remounted (after the farmer dragged me out and helped me put the bumper in the back) I got the garage to seriously upgrade the mounting points. Check them out, I can still hear the farmer laughing over the sound of the tractor.

    Have you tried these guys (ARB importers),

    Would advise using the factory made bumper which can take a winch, its thicker steel and more/bigger fixing points,bit pricey but worth it.
    I used to drag my hilux round by anywhere I could fix a rope/or chain if I got stuck fencing,and I never bent anything on it.Will post a pic of the bumper when I get time.

    If I knew where you were, I would suggest a local firm who would make one for you,
    they do landrover ones, and one offs for "other" cars,

    they may need your vehicle to fit it,
