Alright so this is my first fabrication project and while its not really anything special im pretty proud of getting it done. Its built out of 2"x4", 3/16th wall tubing. Its tied to the frame with 1/4" plates in the rear With a gusset on each side of it, and a piece of the tubing on each side. This thing is freaking beef! I didnt add any recovery points because i have a hitch shackle receiver. What do yall think? be honest.

i like the looks of it. i can't tell if it has supports on the side wings in toward the frame, but that would be good.
it think it's hilarious that your 1st pic has snow in it, but your later ones are full of palm trees and Florida plates!

X2, definately need some side support.

Also, does the tire hit the bumper under full flex?

You just need
after the image location

When you do the insert image thing it does this automatically so all you need is the image location. You can find this many ways but the easiest is to just right click and pick copy image location. Or you can right click and view image, then the location is in the address bar at the top.

haha yea i got stationed down here with the airforce so i dont have much of an option in it. it has side supports welded to the frame, its more pieces of the 2"x4" tube the bumpers made out of. The tires do rub when i stuff them all the way, i have plenty of material left to make more caps so im just gonna chop it off a little shorter and reweld them, im sure i measured for the length on the side pieces for the long side and cut for the short side so they ended up long but o well such is life.

Do you sell these and ship them out? mine is a Pre-runner 2wd and my aftermarket fenders are cut 1" below the rear tail lights so this bumper w/out the side rails (of course including the 2" hitch mount) would be awesome - is this a possibility to get made?
