new front rock bumper

the double tube bumper was getting kind of beat


luckily my bro left this hunk of 5/16" 3" x 5" angle iron at my house the other day
i had already cut it down to this


and i was able to turn it into this with a little help from my hypertherm powermax 30 plasma cutter and hobart 180





i didn't take any pics but i shaved some off the winch plate too, i must have dropped 20lbs off the front.

Angle by itself isn't the strongest stuff. Are you going to add some gussets behind it?

i think between the lower and upper mounts i should be good, it's 5/16" angle and VERY strong and heavy, i also don't plan on hitting anything with them except maybe coming down on a rock, time will tell!
working on a matching rear now, it's painted and ready to be bolted on in the morning so i can try them out...LOL
