Default "Winch" style bumper for 06 Dodge Ram

I have seen a few styles of aftermarket bumpers on 3rd generation Rams and decided to build one for my 06. Why build you ask, #1 I'm a cheap skate, #2 I like to build things

Center section and mounting brackets will be made out of 1/4" while I don't plan to winch with it I do want it strong enough to use for recovery if need be. The rest will be 10ga or 1/8", I would rather make it out of 3/16" but this is only a 1/2 ton truck and I didn't want to hang too much weight up front. Plan to cut in and recess a couple of fog lights in the bumper, and mount 3 6" Hellas on top of the bumper topped off with a Baja style bar to protect them.

now for the pics.

1. mounting plates.
2. center shape.
3. center shape done.
4. added braces and started flaring back up under the headlight.
