    Default Home Made Bumper

    The old bumper was no longer useful so I got to build a new one for the work truck.
    We had lots of 8" plate .25" thick so that is what I used.
    All the pieces were cut out with a plasma and welded together. Dan (co worker) suggested that I clean it up with body filler. Maybe if I make one for my truck but not this one.
    Any comments, ideas or questions are welcome.
    Thanks

    That is a very nice job!

    I wouldn’t have one myself, but I can sure appreciate the work that goes into the front bumpers that people build, (not cnc bent). The bumpers that look like they came out of a Road Warriors movie, or cow catcher on the front of an old train.

    I used the stock brackets from the old bumper and just lined up the holes on one of the braces behind the bumper.

    Then I bolted a piece of 4" X 2" pipe across the frame rails, bolted a piece of flat bar to the pipe and welded the other end of the flat bar to the back or the receiver. we needed the receiver for a winch more than a trailer. It will probably get tested really good in the next little while (snow is coming).

    Good job on the bumper. What are the rails in the shop floor for? Do you work on rail cars?
