    I was thinking on making a new front tube bumper out of 8.5" wide tube I found today.use the torch and cut into the tube,slide a piece of "C" channel into the C shape cut on the tubethen weld it.do the other side,and presto! a nice tube bumper,stick it out a little bit and weld a 1.5" thick plate to the "C" rails extended from the frame ( which are bolted with 3 bolts to each side of the frame)for my winch plate.
    whatcha all think? lets see picks of your front bumpers.
    you can see my current front bumper in my webshots account under this.

    since that picture I added a warn XD9000i winch (which I received for free!) since the top of the bumper is steel dimond plate its kinda thin,so I had to brace the crap out of it.I used the winch to roll my truck backwards sice I was out of gas,and I ran the cable carefully under the truck and to a power pole so I could move it out of the way for me to glass the floors of my frinds rust bucket toyota.since It was a dead pull,I think I twecked the bumper alittle bit,and I dont wanna be stuck somwhere and have the winch rip off the bumper /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gifso I have plans on the new one,then I'd have to find a new clevis point.I might give away the current bumper though.
