I have seen 3/16 and 1/4 inch used. It really depends on what you plan to be doing with it. I know some go strictly for looks so go thinner. If its going to see one h3ll of a beating I would say 1/4. I built mine out of an existing bumper I picked up really cheap off of craigslist. I was originally made of 3/16. I added a 1/4 inch plate on the top for if I ever wanted to mount a winch. Also see my bumper build in my sig. It will at least give you an idea. Also look at different companies for ideas. It took me a while to actually settle on a design I liked.
