Pics of homemade bumpers/brushguards

I am thinking of making myself a brush guard or whole bumper for my 2000 Cherokee xj and I would like to get some ideas because my mind is blank on exactly what I want to make so if you guys could post some pics of your homemade bumper or just any homemade bumper that would help me out a ton. Thank you.

My not at all built yet bumper.

I'll probably change up recessed fog lights before i get around to building it.

Here's mine. I used JCR tie-in plates first, then the bumper uses the 3 front holes on each side. This way it's still supported really well, but is quickly removable.

I don't think anything could kill that. It looks tuff.

Subscribed and bumped. NHJeep4x4, I really like your setup. Great looking jeep too.

Here's the one on mine but it's about to go away. Need to make a winch able front and this thread is perfect timing to help me sort out ideas.

My brother in law is handy with welding, I bet I could get him to make me something like this.
