And the tubing I am using saved some weight with the cut section and I think looks cool haha
The stock bumper may weigh 20# and that would include the styrofoam cushion on the back side, which I assume you will be leaving in place. FYI, the stock bumper isn't too difficult to remove if you have little hands and can find the push pins and plastic rivets.

Okay so that was not too far off. I was estimating without the winch btw haha I saw a thread on taking the bumper off with a convenient look at the frame too...

I got the bottom end taken care of today. I am about done with the general shape but I have to wait to fit it to do the rest. I have to do the crossbars as well. It is looking sweet!!!

Are you leaving the lower section open or tacking some expanded metal in there for protection of brush, rock, trash and general debris.

Might I ask, what kind of a price would this bumper cost to have built....not including shipping or paint?

You know I hadn't thought of expanded metal... not a bad idea.

Well, For something exactly like the one I am doing I would charge what I am charging this guy, which is 950, which considering the sheer volume of material and the geometry on the thing is not bad I don't think. If a bunch of guys wanted them I may be able to lower the price a bit since I will have the design and process of construction down...

Now all I need to do is work up the energy to go start counting all my loose change in that 5 gallon water bottle. It's about 3/4 full, so I am feeling pretty good about it being there. Keep the updates coming.

Just did a little grinding today. I have to start checking the fit so we are going to have to take the stock bumper off. It was gusting to 60mph wind today too so not much outside time haha
