HNC Ford Van Front Winch Bumper

HNC out of Vancouver Washington provided me with everything I was looking for. Truck Hardware out of Lethbridge worked with Joel at HNC on this for me to incorporate a number of features that they were already doing on various of their bumper models. After some photoshop design Joel and his team were excited to make this thing come to life. The communication and customer service which followed is nothing short of phenomenal. At every transition point of my bumper being built, CAD design, laser cut, bumper tacked together and test fit on actual vehicle, final weld and powder coat. They were sending updates and pictures to keep me in the loop, not only for my information but for my approval to move on to the next step. Its sure a lot easier to make a change during a build than to change the finished product. Just want to give the Joel and his crew at HNC bumpers a shout out and my recommendation as I don't come across this kind of support from business very often and they deserve to be brought to light.

Heres a few pics, still wiring up lights and winch but wanted share. I'll shoot better pics when its complete.

Yup same guys, i also had them widen the bumper to accommodate the flares as the ones they had built previous on ebay were flush with the fender.

Thanks! I joke that it'll take an animal hit and then hang the meat on the tow hooks Its preventative, likely will never hit an animal but sure have had a lot of close calls up here. Actually every time i go down my road i see 20 + deer and they love standing in the road.

That thing looks serious! Well done, it came out awesome and the weight actually seems pretty reasonable for how beefy it appears to be.
