Custom front bumper build

So after destroying my stock front bumper by plowing into some a**hole at a stop sign(long story) I decided it was time for something that could handle a little more abuse...or atleast dish it out...
So I ran down to the local welding shop and picked up a 2'X4' piece of 3/16 for a cheap price of $35.

They would have happily thrown it on the press brake for a few extra but luck would have it I have access to a 30 ton hydraulic brake so money saved...

After I put it on the brake and made my first two bends I threw it back in the truck and headed off again to the shop to continue working...


Marked and ready for cutting...

cutting...

steering box skid

enter the shop b****...everyone needs one of them!!

close-up of the corner

reinforcement welding...

And finally mounted...not done but I'm tired of the 15* temps so it will have to work for now...

Time to kick back and have a or two till it warms up some...

Hey, neat idea with the integrated steering skid.

Give us a shot from the front, down low, to show the underside!

I had lights that I was going to mount inside the bumper...they turned into backup lights...funny how that happens. Anyways its not done, it will have a winch on it when I can either find a used one cheap or save up enough for the xrc8...also when the boss gets the tube bender back from powder coating next week I plan on bending a radiator hoop and a SMALL stinger...not one of those massive ones that comes half way up the windshield...weather is warming up slowly so more progress is on the way.
