You can't tell, but its actully two peices of c-channel welded together. Even the 1'' tabs were made from scrap.

Other than then d-rings, it was free other than time.

That looks better than 99% of the junk for sale on this forum and in the catalogs.

so just how much scrap steel do you have???

Nicely done, but it looks like it'll be a tight fit getting the pin through the hitch receiver.

There isn't much clearance for the pin, but it fits with no problem. The only thing that I have to do is trim anything that goes into the reciever, and re-drill a hole for the pin (thankfully have two BIG milling machines at work, along with about ten drill presses). Otherwise the hitch will hit the crossmember, and not be much use, as the pin needs a hole to go through.

Yup always a good idea not very big welds on the frame at that point.

I made a front and rear bumper for my jeep.
The rear is an air tank as well.

What type of Welder do all you guy's use to make your bar work ?

Arc ? Mig ? Tig ?

Do yo trust your weld's to bare the weight of lifting your Jeep .

eg: would you lift your Jeep via the front or rear bar using your Highlift jack ?
