No, I don't. I didn't bother drawing this because I figured that out as I went along. I just chose hole locations that wouldn't hit anything on the inside, and sort of winged it. Same thing with the holes on the bottom.

also what holes were you talking about here?
No, 14ga is not near thick enough. 14ga is roughly 1/16th of an inch. 1/3rd the thickness they should be. If you landed on a rock with it, it would dent causing severe damage to the body of the jeep.

Nope, the sandwich plates are .130 stainless steel. A little thinner (slightly thicker than 1/8th"), but stainless is really tough stuff.. enough to bend the bottom of my tub downward before flexing when I was tightening the hardware.

Yep there is a front bumper thread in my sig..

Working on two different rear bumpers now. One 'normal' one, made from rectangle box tube, with jerry can holders, swing out tire carrier, etc.. and one that matches the forming on the front bumper (for my jeep).
