Default Built Rear JK Swing Bumper(FINISHED PICS)

Well I got the itch to build a rear bumper so I bought some 3/16" plate steel and got started. I made a few original patterns and took some measurements off the original bumper. I cut everything with my angle grinder and some angle iron to make nice straight cuts and took my time.
I still have lots of welding to do on the back and front, then grinding to smooth it out of the front side. I am also going to add some gussets on the back side for some more strength.
I will also be adding some d-ring mounts and some led reverse lights from GENRIGHT. I have the steel for the swing out and the de sta co latch, just need to get my spindle hinge. I think I am going with the COMP4x4 double shear hinge.
I like how everything turned out so far except for the wrap around, it looks to square ish to me, so I am going to be cutting some angles into it then boxing the end off, I think.
I will be adding some more pics as I build the rest.
What do you guys think of it?
