rear bumper build

Here's the new rear bumper I've been working on for my 4runner. It's 11 gauge and really not too heavy. I'll build a tire carrier for it, when I have time, but the pivot/ hinge is already in.

x2, that looks really nice. 11ga... that's a bit thicker than 1/8" right? I think mines 1/8" and has held up really well.

I'm outside your window watching you read this.

Yep, almost 3/16" and it's cold rolled, too, a little stronger than hot rolled. I think it should do the job. Cant believe the stock bumper is only bolted to the body, so anything is better than that. Thanks!
