The clevis mount comes thru the bumper alongiside an inner rib. Also, the lower bumper mount (not shown), catches the other side of the clevis mount. So.. the mount is tied into the bumper, the gusset, and the lower mount.

Just one question...what you you doing to bend the front piece back to meet the top and the bottom pieces?
Thanks Jeremy, I just score the ends with a cutoff wheel and push them into place by hand. Then, I run a bead along the score and blend it in.

I'm embarassed to say.. no updates.

I still haven't put the finishing touches on this thing (finish welding and paint). I've just been using the snot out of it. Have bent up a few dozen winch plates and at least several hundred small brackets. This is one of those machines that's so useful, you're afraid to have it down for even 1 day.

I think future plans will include 3" and 3.5" dies.. for bending some 3/8" and 1/2" thick brackets..

Hey! Long time no see!!

Yep.. use it almost daily. I still haven't gotten around to shooting paint on it though.

I've probably done at least 1000 bends with it so far.. brackets, winch plates, bumper pieces..etc.

I need to invest in more dies.. maybe some wider dies for 3/8" and 1/2" plate.. and some gooseneck dies for deep bending. I also want to make a die holder for my dimple dies. Just gotta find the time.

Haha. That oven was in work the first time I was ever there. You've been working on that idea as long as I've been busing the same set if axles.

So how is this press holding up?

I am finally planning to start building one, but a little bigger.

Looking to do a 72" 90 - 100 Ton setup, still got a ways to go on the design.
