Nothing is going to get done tomorrow because I have class all day, but I think the next thing I will tackle is the sill plate, then work my way into boxing in the sides. Maybe add some reverse lights, deff got to move the license plate.

I actually didn't write any measurments down, I call it rapid prototyping.

Also, I don't want any similar bumpers running around :haha:

Your welcome to use my design, just guess the proportions, thats what I did.

Maybe I'll cut out my floor tonight for the channels, that shouldn't take too long. If my freaking microstation class is done before 9pm that is

Bumper looks sweet man! I can't wait to see the finished product. I've been debating trying to build a rear tire carrier and bumper for my Jeep but I have no fab or welding experience.

Thanks, do what I did and build the bumper first and the tire carrier later. Go buy yourself a Hobart handler 140 (or bigger if you can afford it) and just have at it.

This is the first bumper I ever built with no welding or fabbing skills, as you can see you only get better with practice! You don't just wake up and know what the **** you're doing

Got a fair amount done today. Arm triangulated.





Everything back on.



Decided to use a lug nut to hold the other end of the Jack, this way I can use one the stock lug nut wrench to remove the jack.

look great!

Isn't not having your license plate illuminated illegal?

what is you bumper made out of? does it flex because of the weight at all?

Also got some little rubber bump stops.



Tapped a hole.




Cut down the bumpstop, recessed a washer and bolted in with a 1/4" bolt, this will work nicely! This will make up for any changes in latch/hinge tolerance.
