THE BUMPER BUILD for rear of a 98 e-350 van

Overview

i got my farmer friends 98 ford e-350 strech van to work on. he got this van this past fall used real nice shape. never realy drivin in the winter min rust for upstate ny salt belt vehicles.


well the rear bumper was smashed in on right rear corner and also turned up like a twizler is made. so makeing it stright was not gona happen. new aftermarket min 200 bucks and good used not around here.


so after thinking it over i am making him a new bumper BEEFY style.

pic #1= van its self real clean no real rust
pic #2= rear step bumper shoved in to body and twisted up prob close to 2" off level
pic #3= buddys shop bench 1" solid work bench with raw metal to start with for build
pic #4-5= 2 40" long 8" tall 1/4" thick center C channel sections (flat) and (on top) 8" tall 3/16" thick for mount plates to bolt to frame.

going to make basicly the same step bumper but much STRONGER than stock crap. he uses this for farm use and pulling wagons around. he has class #5 reese hitch also .
then going to mount in the 1 side a 7 round trailer plug socket with the flat 4 on it also. and 2 nice size weld on D-rings for tie down points. and on the face 1 per side nice big rubber bumper pads like on big trucks or semi trailers for little bunce protection. then top the whole thing off with tred plate and custom paint it.
