Started work on the rear bumper, Im trying to make it as simeple as possible wile still doing its job for recovery. Im useing 1/8" wall 2"x4" tube, for the bumper, the mounting plates are EX TEN-50 1/4" plates I cut on one of my lasers at work, along with 2"x4" tube for an inside the frame mount, the recovery tabs are laser cut from A514 3/4" that will go through the bumper and be welded on both sides.

Dring tabs

I cant figure how to post this as a video on here but this is them beeing cut out.

Bumper plates.


Got the rear bumper and hitch off.

Im still trying to decide what angle i should cut the ends of it at.

Wile I ponder on angles/waiting for warren pipe to get more tube in, I went to Joes Army Navy, and found thees neat little guys.


Becomes this.

Also, since my taxes were nice, I took the ford 9" housing in to DTS and they installed a spool, 5.13 gears and a Ubolt style yoke for me, and with a 24hr turn around, it was a glitch but cool haha.
