    I am in the process of building me some bumpers, I just thought I would share the progress. The rear is done and the front is coming along. I am going to bend up a bar to go across the top of the new front bumper that will go about as high as the plastic bumper. I am also going to weld in a reciever so I can use a winch on the front as well. As for the winch I am going to buy this Smittybilt since it is on sale and free shipping.

    They ain't perfect but all I have in them is my time since I had the metal laying around.

    Thanks for posting these pics. I'm thinking of the best way to do front and rear bumpers and receivers but I am concerned with the spare tire in the back. I would like to still be able to access that space but I don't want to mount the bumper too low. Also don't really want to have the spare in the bed or anywhere else. I was wondering how you worked around this? Any suggestions?

    I would like to see some pictures of how you attached the channels to your truck also!

    Generally, car bumpers are made of a plastic cover reinforced by a bar made of steel, fiberglass composite, plastic or aluminum. In addition to crushable brackets and a bar, bumpers sometimes incorporate polypropylene foam or formed thermoplastic. Bumpers protect important equipment on your car such as headlights, taillights, hood and exhaust and cooling systems.

    It has been a while since I built mine but I welded a bracket I made right onto both the inside and outside of the frame up front. Then bolted the bumper to that frame. It is rock solid. I have a winch for the receiver and it is wired both front and back with remote. It has saved me twice from a long hike home. I think there are some pictures on my profile page.
