    Do any of you guys have pics of how you attached your custom rear bumper to the frame? I am in the process of building one and need some info and pics on how and where to attach it. Thanks 88K5Jimmy

    I used 1/2" plate steel and cut is out so my rear tube bumper sits in the bracket and then bolted them along side the frame rails.
    Sorry no pics.

    I'll try to get some pics of the 1/2 plate i bolted to my frame for my front bumper. Planning to do the same thing for my rear except use 1" plate.
