Need YJ rear bumper dimensions

Hey Guys!

I am looking to beef up my rear end on my 88 YJ. I have one of those tube style bumpers, however, with the crappy little angle tabs that the previous owner had holding the two tube bumper on, he bent the rear piece of flat metal which you bolt the bumper to. I am going to beat it back straight and then weld another piece of flat bar on top of it to give it some backbone.

Here is my dilemma, the jeep is out at the deer lease and I am 250 miles away. Can someone go out and measure the piece I am talking about and give me some dimensions...L X W X H would work fine. I can get it from there.

The dimensions may not be helpful. If you have to beat out your rear frame. It may or will change the dimensions.

I reinforced mine with1/4 flat steel by making a cardboard template then cutting the steel to the template and welding the new steel completely around the rear frame. The template also had the holes to rebolt my bumper on.

Also the rear frame is not rectangular straight across. Take a look at the piece on other YJs to see what I mean.
