    Can some of ya'll give me some plans for a custom front and rear bumper? I'd like a rear bumper with the swing out tire holder, hi lift jack stand and jerry can holder. And the front bumper basically just needs to look pretty tough and halfway match the back. Thanks!!

    I have some pics of my rear bumper on my site. It wouldn't be hard to make a front to match the back.

    Mine are simple and match. the ends are 4x4 inch box with 3/16 thick walls. the center section is 1/4 for the front winch deck and 3/16 for the rear, the uprights are 3/4 plate with clevis holes for recovery points. They are designed to box the frame horns to protect them from bending when side loaded. Pictures on my site, link is below.

    LOL.... You think I'm gonna do this? YEA RIGHT!!! [​IMG].
    I've never welded a darn thing in my life. I was gonna take it to one of the local muffler shops (my dads customers) and see if they can help me out with it. They are always welding something unusual, so I figured they could put the welder to use for something good.

    I'll base it on the picture then. Should be able to come up with something!!
