    I like the bumper, it looks well built.


    I fabricated a full replacement for a friend's Ranger a while back outta 1/8" diamond plate with a 3" pipe, 1/4" wall for support. End result was around 100 lbs and hardly dropped the front suspension any.

    Hey Jesse! It's your fellow Dedoes welder... Guess who... Hint I always turn your tig welder off right before you start a bead....

    Default I built a bumper for a suburban.

    I built a bumper with a winch, running lights, and fog lights and made it custom to the 1993 suburban.
