Anyone running one of these? I'm kind of looking for a front and this is the first design that I find appealing and functional.

I made the same observation and had angle of approach concerns. I do like the hdpe skid plate and exterior winch mount features though. When I use a winch, which is very rarely, it's always in snow or mud so higher and exposed is preferable for me. Still undecided.That sticks out way too far and is not needed.
I agree with you about that. I prefer my winch to be mounted down in the frame so I know that if I use it, it is secure. Pretty sure that if I used my snatch block with my 4500 lb. winch, I could pull that bumper mounted winch right off the machine.Still not sure on the winch mount.
I wish I had a little more background on Moab Offroad. I researched their FB page and the claim to be automotive consultants or something like that. Out of Lexington KY. Not a lot of content there. Makes me think or guess they specify, manufacture, and drop ship, from some place like China or Vietnam. Other sellers do the same, but was hoping to see some more feedback on their product. Thats one of the reasons this thread was started.
If I'm going to smack my bumper it's more than likely going to be in a water crossing situation hitting a hidden Boulder. Or a short climb with a rocky "hail Mary" section. Plus I'd like to not submarine my winch any more than possible.
Their "race car" video has some very unrace car issues, such as crazy offset wheels, but it's a product showcase...I get that.
I wish this design was made by an outfit like Brick City Fab that I have delt with in the past. It would be in the mail right now. Doing more research as I really like the design.
According to FB....l only looked briefly on a friend's mobile as I don't allow that digital syphilis on my platforms.....Moab has been around in some form since 2016 IIRC. I'm OK with a wait to a point as I'm in no hurry. On the other hand, learning to work skid plate plastics and fabbing my own up for something like the HMF bumper might be a fun project. The Moab is starting to look like a dead end.They show some interesting products, but nothing really in stock. So I’m not sure if they are a new outfit or what.

If you do go with the Extreme bumper and keep the interior frame winch mount, would there be a cable routing option just out of the front of the aluminum skid plate? Big learning curve for me on this stuff, sorry for the dumb questions. I've always had bumper mounts on my Polaris ATVs in the past......and they do bend then stressed. I do know that a Polaris General frame mount will self destruct if winched too tight against the fair head as the sons inlaws did that trick. I've yet to even use the the frame mounted winch in my Pioneer as I've had my truck winch at hand every time I've needed one. Same with the KRX.
Thanks. I already have a winch installed in the frame by the diff., its wired and functioning I am looking into relocating it in to a position like the Warn winch bumper. They could have done better with the wiring in that Warn picture.
