New Poor Mans Rear Bumper

Built a new rock crusher rear bumper today. I would recommend this to anyone if you have a welder and someway to cut some steel. Just slapped another coat of bedliner material on it hope to get it all bolted up tomorrow.

Total cost $60.00 including finishing it.

How thick is the steel, are you using gas, etc. I only have a cheap welder that can do about 3/16's so I'm probably out of luck.

Well I want to fab me up a bumper, hitch, tire carrier, roof rack thing all in one. But I don't think mines powerful enough to weld one...

I really really like the look of that. Just so happens that i was contemplating a bumper for myself this afternoon. I was going to do the old 4x4 trick, my dad did it to his. Buy a 4x4 spray paint it black, looks like steel lol. This appears to be much better, not much more expensive. Have any ideas for a front one =D
