Front protection from animals

What company makes a HD front bumper or add on for MB Sprinter that I can also have an EZ hitch on the bumper assembly for my plug in portable 12,000 pound capacity Warn winch?

Van Compass or Agile if you want to retain the stock front bumper, Aluminess or Backwoods if you want to replace it. You will have to check with each manufacturer for their rated capacity.

Thanks Fitz!
Looking for HD manufacturing and so far the best I can find is www.roambuilt.com but they are not in full production yet. I saw their equipment at last years OX in Flagstaff and it was really well made. Just an FYI.
The vent above the stock bumper for cooling must be kept open or re-direct air flow to accomplish same. MB and I had a long discussion about this concern, so I am liking the Roam built as they are working closely with MB, especially on the air bag concerns.
Best regards.

Good to know about Roambuilt. I recall searching for their products when I was going through this process and not finding much available to look at, I will look again.

Aluminess has developed an air scoop for their front bumper, pictures and details are in my build thread. I was one who didn’t have a problem before the scoop, measured temps have come down even more since the install. (And yes, I have a winch installed.)
