      Great work, should look even better on the truck. Ever consider a reese hitch on the thing, they can be pretty valuble to have out front

        That bumper is slick. I am glad you chose paint or powder coating. The Rhino Liner would not do your work justice. You may have said in one of your posts....how many hours do you have in the project from mock up to completion?
        Thanks,

            I wasn't really keeping track, just roughly adding up the time I spent on it it's real close to 25 hrs. If I ever did another one it would go much faster because I learned alot on this one LOL!!! The grinding and finish work took muuuuuch longer than the mock up and welding!

                  I forgot to ask if you had to use any body filler on your bumper.

                            for the heavier pieces I used the plasma, for the 1/8" I mostly used a bandsaw or an angle grinder with a .040" cutoff wheel


                            Bert, honestly, no filler. Got it powder coated and I don't think the filler would hold up under cure temps.....guess I never asked, just assumed they wouldn't want any filler. I'm not saying a few spots couldn't have used a little bit....just didn't use any
