That is a big *** front bumper. Where'd you get it? Or is it custom?

Custom, a little back yard welding. I wanted it to look somewhat like a half track, I'd say thats as close to one as I'm going to get.

I have no idea, but its not as heavy as it looks the two compartments on the sides don't have anything in them. And I haven't gotten a winch to go in the middle yet.

She not he
You are right about the angle, and it is a durable bumper. I hit a deer with it recently, not a dent to it, that's why I repainted it. It is nice to get some positive comment about it, normally I hear "is that really necessary, or what in the world do you need that for"

Looks like I didn't get to have as much fun as zte87 I just detailed mine for the day.

Bar pin eliminators installed
Bumpstop extensions put back in (forgot to put them in when I dropped the axle to replace the LCA brackets)
Tweaked front Claytons - straightened the axle and pulled the tires away from the firewall
Rebuilt front trackbar - it was seized pretty darn good. Had to fight to get it apart, then used enough anti-seize to choke a horse

Oil change on the tow rig too.
