Well, after a buddy won a local mud bog he used his winnings to purchase a tube bender. He tested it by bending some 2" schedule 40 no prob so now time for me to think about building my bumpers I've been designing. First off, my winch mount, how think of plate should be used on that? Would 3/8" be adequate or overkill? Also, I plan on making the mupers/ sliders from 1.75" but not sure the guage to use. Sch 40 would be strong but heavy. .120 wall would be alot lighter and cheaper. They are pretty triangulated style bumpers like most people build with a stinger bar and wrap around protection in the front. Suppose I could get away with using just .120 wall? Any other comments and help is appreciated. Thanks.
