Bumper tie in metal thickness
I have some 3/16" plate steel left over from a tire carrier/bumper project that i just finished and was wondering if you guys thought it would be thick enough to use as a tie in for the bumper? I just plan on welding 2 pieces at a 90 degree angle with a little gusset in there somewhere. I would like to use the receiver that is built into the bumper as a recovery point.
I've seen some Tie Ins made from as thin as 1/8" material. 3/16" will probably be fine. Just inspect it periodically.. especially after a hard tug or towing.
