Default TJ Stubby Bumper

Just wanted to post this to get some feedback.
Specs:
3/16" bent and laser cut plate.
1" X 2-1/2" D Rings, with 3/4" hole...welded front and back.
1-5/8" DOM Stinger tube.
(6) 1/2"-13 mounting points.

Good or bad?

I was planning on adding a 1/2" thick plate behind where the bumper ends to eventually mount a winch to. I'll add some support tubes running from there up to the stinger.

Added 2 support tubes, tied into the sway bar holes on the frame using 3/8" plate.
I'd sell this one, I had to have a couple of plates bent just to make it affordable, so I was planning on doing a couple different styles.

It should cover the sides of the frame to clean up the look.
