I contacted Move about them discontinuing light bar and winch combo and this is the reply I received. So those that got bumpers with both consider yourself lucky.

Thanks for contacting MOVE Bumpers. We discontinued that option due to available space on the bumper. We had issues with the space constraints inside the bumper, but we will however make a bumper with both options, but at your own risk. We won’t be responsible for any issues you have installing/operating your truck due to the issues that I mentioned above.

If only protofab offered an unfinished/non-welded version of theirs? I'd be all over that to save a few bucks.

The light bar above the winch is really a pain in the ass. I had to clock the winch so the release lever is on the back so you have to reach behind it to free spool it and make a custom bracket for the solenoid pack which also sits behind the winch. It still works, just a bit of a pain.

Move bumpers??

I only see one thread on them. I kinda like the look and I have welder. But I'm curious on what the light bar and fog light holes look like up close. Or if they are just open and the light mounts behind the front. Anyone buy one of their kits? I'm thinking the dual dogs and 20" light bar. None of the other stuff. Maybe the chinsy shackle mounts

Guess they aren't that popular. If no one uses them can anyone express why they went differently? Can't imaging I'm the only who doesn't want to drop a couple grand on front bumper

Yes the name is MOVE. They sell DIY bumper kits with all sections pre-cut that you just weld yourself or take to a shop for welding.

I've only heard good things about them, and they are an option I am considering also when I get to working on my body.

I've seen people use them here on this board before.

Check this thread out: Another 7.3 Powerstroke Bronco Build

If the link is weird just go to the last page on that thread you can see the finished product. That whole build is nuts! But he uses a Move bumper.

Found it. I saw this thread but it was year old so I started a new one.

Think I'm going to give them a try. Seems like a nice way to save a ton of pennies. I have yet to see anything bad about them. Was just hoping for some better pics of the light holes and such.
