AFAIK there arent any anywere in the net.
everything you see bu googling is either one-off custom made projects

the only fabrication I know is Rocksportgear Dave Scott. but that is also build-to-order.

no major company has a sportage build. Now if you can modify from an other model an which, I dont know..

So basikaly the most practical thing you can do is take off yours and take all nesesary measyrments an/or by the use cartons to make the design of your like wich you then duplicate in metal..

TJM and ECB inAustralia make alloy bullbars for the Sportage.

Unfortunately to the best of my knowledge no one makes a winch compatible bullbar.

I wonder if one of these would fit with a a new cradle mount.

The frontal area is very similiar in shape and size to the Sportage.
