Default New rear bumper my dad and I are building.

So I got tired of that rusted POS of a stock bumper I had so I got some steal and me and my dad started to work. One thing that sucks is we only have a 110 welder, it was not to happy after we were done tonight lol.

Stock old bumper that somehow all the bolts came out very easily.


Moc up


I used threaded rod welded throught the back to make the plate holders


Dad welding while I cooled off. It gets hot under that hood with the welder cranked up lol


Will have the "finished" on truck pic tomorrow after bed liner drys.

Its all done and on. Looks a little lopsided but the tailgate is not it.


FYI if the head of your rubber mallet comes off the handle hurts
