Default A couple pics of my bumpers

Not the prettiest. I was sorta in a hurry and made them more for function than fashion. I should have madrel bent the stinger tube, but the torch and bend meathod was quicker. 3/4" 20k lb D rings. The flat steel is all 3/8" so they wont dent. Ever. LOL

I also did the lighting on the rear. The little ones are the turn signals, the big ovals are brakes, and the little clear are the reverse. This was my 1st full ground up build. I did everthing from the chassis/suspension to the paint.

GMC,....thanks

The bumpers are pretty heavy. Not as heavy as youd think, but not too light either. They arent solid. They are open undernieth so the mud and crap can fall out. It was all scrap steel so my work didnt charge me for it.

I think I am going to start building bumpers and selling them soon. They will be a lot nicer though! I am still going to build them more for function than fashion.
