Planning to make front and rear bumpers in the near future and was wondering whether or not the stock bumper mounts would hold up to winching my car around if I get into trouble.

Either way what are some good points I may be able to reinforce onto?

Also will 1 1/4" square tubing 1/4 sidewall be sturdy enough? Want something fairly basic and need to replace my bumpers because they are busted anyways.

your stock bumper mounts should hold up to just about anything you through at it but i also conect my bumpers to the engine crossmeber it protects the oil pan and stops the bumper from twisting from the winch pulling on it some one also says to run the mounts long and add a extra bolt or 2 i use 1/2" flat stock to mount my bumpers to the body my first bumper was very thin gage and never gave me any trouble while winching witb a 3000lb winch when i upgraded my bumper i upgraded my winch
