I made a front bumper

Made this out of a stock TJ bumper. I removed the floaties and then cut a triangle out of the face 2 inches below the top on each side. I bent the bottom up and made a four pass weld and then ground it smooth. After that I welded a plate on each end and voila! A 50 inch wide bumper that gives me a better approach ange on the rocks. Unfortunately it is still only 3/32" steel, but...what do you think?
