Looking to build a custom rear bumper for my TJ.

Been looking around for some good complete plans for a rear bumper for my TJ Rubicon. I want to build one that includes D-ring mounts and a 2" receiver. I would also like to be able to add a tire carrier in the future when I upgrade to larger tires (stock currently). Where's a good place to find plans for such a beast? I remember someone (Quadratec maybe?) had kits you could buy with the steel already cut and you just had to weld it together, but I can't find them anymore. I'd like to source the steel locally to save money on shipping, and I do have some experience welding steel, but I will admit, I am no expert at it (have a farm, done a bunch of welding on the equipment, did have one class in college on welding and fab).

I have two welders here on the farm, chop saw, sawzall, grinders, etc. Do I have a chance of making something worthwhile, or would I just be wasting my time? Anyone have plans they'd like to post up?
