    Nice man, I like it. You might be surprised how quickly that 3/16's 1018 will add up weight wise though.

    Won't that monster winch weigh it down pretty good

    There wont be a winch mounted on it, hence the hitch reciever

    I take it you guys havent noticed it's basically the same design as BlackMamba's
  12. I noticed it today when I saw his beach pics, it's a great bumper
  13. I thought it looked familiar lol

    Just a couple slight alterations for my convenience
  15. After just looking at them side by side, they're a little different. Not too much though

    Yea, it's pretty much the perfect design. Just tweaked a little for what I need it for. It will be a LOT smaller tho, size wise, a real nice low profile bumper.
  17. what do you think it will cost to make it?

    $100 in supplies. 8" wide channel iron 3/16" thick is $75 plus the extra 4" wide plate steel I have lying around. Guy at work's welding it up for me.
  19. nice , great price
