What to do?

So I found a piece of 3" solid square stock about three feet long on the side of the road... All kinds of stuff shows up when the snow melts. But anyway what can I do with it? Any ideas on incorporating it into a jeep tj? Yes I am a welder/ hobby fabricator. And no I'm not gonna recycle it for $3

I can't think of anything on a Jeep that could use something that heavy.

If it was 2 in square I'd say you could make plug in receiver mounts out of it. I don't know what 3 in solid bar would be useful for.

Turn it down and chop it up and drill holes in it to make the pucks for the 2" BL you have planned for the Jeep. Use the rest to mill some billet steal motor mounts for that 5.0 swap.

The d-ring tabs crossed my mind. Honestly Its probably more trouble than it's worth but I couldn't just leave it laying there. I probably will do some overkill d-rings. Nice thoughts with the bl pucks and billet mounts.... I'll just have to spend a few grand on a mill to utilize this free steel. On that note anyone in or near Rockford il that could use the other two feet of this?

Keep it around, you'll eventually think of some use for it. Probably not on the Jeep.
