I like it, nice job. Especially how you brought it down and back to protect the radiator.

Good job, and great price! What size and where did you get the rectangular lights?

Northern tools, but I don't think they make them anymore.

I don't like WJs, but the bumper itself looks awesome.

Thanks. I'm thinking about making one for the rear in the same style.

Looks great! I think I would have filled in the lower outer pieces of tube with some plate and possibly added some plate into where the lights mount to try and hide whats behind it, but thats just my personal opinon. The works looks good and overall the lines look really good on there. Nice work!

I agree with don. Put some plate in there to hide the insides plus keep branches, brush, small cars from getting stuck.
