Default Pics of the new front bumper I built

Just finished building a bumper for my 95, XJ. Me and my buddy designed and built it. Took a few weeks, but I think it was worth it. Not bad for my first bumper.
It started out as 3x5x1/4 tube.

Heres a few pics, let me know what you think..

I'd love to see some pics of it attached to your Jeep. Any idea what you might charge for one?

Well what kind of time would you have into making one? Plus what is a hour of your time worth to you?
If you can build some thing like that for my TJ but shorter I would give $200 easy for one.

I'll pay $200 for one for a yj if you get the time, possibly with a taller pointier stinger. Looks real good. PM me if you want to build one

What are your dimensions for brackets, total mounting holes, and width / height / deep for the actual bumper? I'm lookin at doing some custom fab for mine too.

Bumper looks good. Let us know how it does on the trails.

The bumper is 3x5x1/4 tube, 4'6 long. Each end is bent to 10 degrees. I believe there are a totoal of 12 bolt holes on the bumper mounts, which are 4in tall, and about 10in. long. (nates4x4.com sells the brackets $30 but he doesnt have any pics on his site)
