I beams, C channels... TOO beefy?
Alright, so I have an I beam rusting in our metal shop, and some C-channels as well. I love the J8 concepts, and would love to fab a quick front bumper out of the I beam, and some sliders out of the C channels. HOWEVER, im afraid that any collision with them, especially the bumper, could result in the impact going straight to the frame. Am I right to be worried? Im pretty iffy on the bumper, considering my jeep is still under warranty, but definitely eager to start the sliders. I just want to asses the risk before committing.
Fyi, the c channels are around 1/4in, the I beam isnt quite that thick though. Couldnt tell you atm
