Design For F/R Bumpers

So has anyone actually taken the time to have some plans for Jeep bumpers actually drafted on a computer aided drawing system or no? If not what is usually a good with for a bumper like 48" or is that too big?

build it, wheel it, break it, repeat

I do it to help me visualize what I'll be building. I do it with almost everything I build. For me it helps me think.

My first bumper was 52" and my current is 38"

No, I use the computer to look for designs and ideas. Then I plan for the material (using the computer again) before getting started, so I donít have to stop in the middle of the build to go and get parts. But I havenít used the computer to build a diagram of what Iím about to build.

On the rear bumper, this is what I wanted to build something like.

This is what I ended up with.
