Check out my new steel! Big83Chevy4x4 built this for me. Everything is 3/16 steel and it bolts to the frame in all of the same places the stock bumper brackets bolted on. As you can see, I need to get my spare tire on now. The clevis mounts are 1x2 solid steel, welded on both sides of the bumper, plus to the mounting brackets so the load is basically transferred directly to the frame. About 10" on each end is completely boxed in. The D-rings are on their way. I will probably have to get about a 12" drop hitch now.
