    I'd love to have a winch. But I am not sure what kind of bumper I should get or where to even start looking.

    Warn's tran4mer bumper is pretty sweet. Take a look at their website. Ranch hand too but they are pretty proud of those things.

    I loved my ranch hand that was on my 08'. I can't wait to put one on my dually.

    I'll get a pic of my winch setup. It's a ranch hand bumper.
    There is a hide-winch setup that uses your factory bumpter but has spacers and the winch fits behind it. Pretty cool setup.
    I also like the full length bed rails and headache rack. The deep toolbox with transfer tank is nice. When I set up my f250, I am going to add those as well as a gun vault in the center console.

    I am Gonna do some research on a bumper.. Not sure if I want something to go over the stock bumper or that takes place of the whole bumper.

    I'd love to get an aluminum L transfer tank and a low profile toolbox with rails to update my current set up of a 36gal straight up and down tank steel tank.. And my beat up black box.. But it holds tools an diesel fuel just as well as the purty ones :laugh:

    If you are a workin' man, it's just a matter of time until the purdy ones look like the ugly ones. When I had my '05 f350 outfitted with a flatbed, I put a new transfer tank and new air compressor (another must have) and it didn't take long to get it scratched and dented. Try as I might to keep things looking good, one dumb move will leave a dent not to mention the grime from overfilling the transfer tank a few times. :laugh: or turning the chipper's chute over the truck while it is still chipping! That'll leave a mark.

    I'd love to have an air compressor but that's another thing I haven't figured out how I wanted set up quite yet

    Do you have photos of the compressor setup in the flatbed?
