    rear bumper

    Just started my bumper today. Goal was cheap, strong, effective winch bumper. Think I am on the right track. Tried cutting with the plasma but wouldn't go through the 5/16 steel. Ended up doing all the cutting with a 4.5" angle grinder with some cut off discs.

    bumper main piece is 4x6 angle 5/16 thick, D ring mounts each end are 3/4 x 3 flat bar, and then the receiver in the middle. Also going to use the cut off from the angle iron as gussets for the winch.

    just have to do a little more grinding, drill the shackle holes and receiver hole and then weld it together. Might change the gussets around too, they look pretty square

    Looks good so far. Might recommend some additional gusseting around your receiver too. Those are some hefty gussets you've got on the sides; are those the recovery mountings?
