Here is a pic of my design. Like I said it is entirely 1/4 plate. Here a link also to the folder with a bunch of pics as I was building it.

Anymore opinions on the D-rings? Bolts are directly above and below. I'm not worried about my welds holding.

Well... I couldn't leave it alone.

Weld in 45's

Welded out

And finished



Added the hoop and changed the D-ring mount. Now they are cut into the face of the bumper. They are welded to the 1/4 plate and the 3/16 on both sides.

That really looks good! I like how you tied the hoop into the vetical winch plate for reinforcement.

Did I miss it? Source for weld-in 45's?

You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.

Thanks, but my rig is just a Prince among Kings. You folks gave me the answers to build it!

Local welding supply. The small pipe has 90's on each end, cut to the angle I needed. You can probably find them somewhere on the web. Really common for pipe welding.

Jason, that is one great looking bumper!!! I really like the lines of the bumper... truly an awesome DIY project that surpasses anything that I have seen on the market. If you ever get into "bumper building", sent me a post. I have a 92 YJ that is in need of a front bumper.

Take care,

Check out "YJ V6 Conversion" if you want to see a frame up restoration of my 1992 YJ.

Check out "WWII Jeep Photos AND Restoration of..." if you want to see the original JEEP in action...

sweet is that a pipe pro?, nice rig, did you build the bed? I love welding rigs !!


A friend of mine built this rig, he is now a welding inspector and no longer needs the rig. So he sold it to my employer, now it's my responsibility.I'm the mechanic/welder fabricator, not the pipe welder. But I still love this rig. Even for a ford, it's a nice truck ...lol. It's 100% custom built bed. 200 F550 7.3 psd, 6 spd 4x4. Miller pipe Pro stainless hood. Custom built electric reels, for leads and remote. We just got it today. It has sat in his garage for 1 1/2 years, under a cover. It needs some polishing, and I am putting a battery in the welder and servicing it (that's why the cover is off welder, atm)



sorry to hi jack ur thread, but I know most welders take pride in their rigs

Always ready to show off my rig. My machines not a Pipepro. It's the Pro 300. I did build my bed about 6 years ago. I got the new truck last year so I had the bed blasted and painted and some Line-X sprayed.

Nice truck, there's a lot of work in that aluminum bed.

over $8,000 in aluminum alone, that's not counting his time and labor to build it, his dad told me he spent 6 weeks building the bed alone. If you look at the doors, every diamond matches, everywhere..... all of them. He built that 90 gal. "L" fuel tank out of stainless also, the welder sits on it. He built the running boards and fender flares also.

No blue prints. All done with one good eye and a tape measure. Start with the winch plate, as wide as the frame and as long as needed to fit a winch. Then angle the front piece from it back to the bottom of the frame rails. Now the two pieces that weld to the sides of the winch plate. Mine were about 3" wide at the top and the same as the winch plate at the bottom. Now break out the cardboard and figure the way you want the rest of it to look.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you need more.

If you took a piece of 1x1 angle and welded it across the backside behind the winch it would settle all the winch plate bowing concerns
