    nice! what thickness did you use?

    I just fabed up a 2x6 .25" bubmper alot like yours, only a bit simpler. Also, the bracets you used, why did you decide to triagulate them, in stead of using a piece of L steel? Just wondering if i should triangulate mine/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    It is mostly 1/4" with alittle 3/16" thrown in too. I made the brackets like that cause I couldn't find any angle iron in the scrap bin. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Nice! I like the design. But I think that classifies as an "Import Deflector" as opposed to a 'bumper'. How mcuh did it end up weighing?

    I would guess its about 175-180lbs. Believe it or not, it only sagged the springs 3/4 inch over stock. Measured from the floor to the frame before and after.
    A winch is my next thing. To fill up the empty spot in the middle. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
