New member, new bumper

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just fabbed up this bumper. 1 3/4 inch DOM tubing bent and welded to 1/4 inch top plate. The bottom plate is also 1/4 inch plate but it bolts directly to the square stock the top is welded to for winch mounting access,etc. 3/8 inch aluminum diamond plate is is riveted to the tubing. I made it so it slips over my frame rails and I am still trying to decide if i want to weld or bolt it on. What do you guys think?

Just joined

98 tacoma,2.7,auto
Racerunner coilover for IFS, allpro leaf rear

I'm not normally a fan of diamond plate, but I think you tastefully used it on that bumper
