    Uglychevy383 you are correct. IT was a warn classic bumper but it has not been narrowed. The ends on the warn classic suck big time they are really thin. So I cut them off and left the center section because it was 1/4 inch thick. So what I did was cut the ends off and welded some 3x3 1/4 inch square tubing at a angle to the center section. I then used 2x2 1/4 inch thick square tubing for bumper to frame support feels really stout. I then bent some chrome moly tubing for the front hoop, push bar or cow catcher what ever you want to call it. All I need to do is figure on where I am going to mount my lights.
    My old bumper use to look like this.http://coloradok5.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=4740&size=big&papass=&sort=1&thecat=508 This photo was taken a couple weeks ago at the mud fest. Notice how the passenger side is all bent and pushed up.
