My little brother has been working for me for about a year or so now in the shop. He decided he wanted a bumper for his pickup, so he built this one over a few weeks every day after work. 4.5" OD 1/4 wall pipe with 1/8" floor plate. The uprights are 1/4" plate, cross members are 2 3/8" pipe. Instead of flat strap over the uprights like everyone else, he cut 2" strips of floor plate and welded them up. I made it a point to not say a word or help him one bit on any of it unless he asked. I think it came out pretty awesome.

Good looking bumper. Might be worth more than the truck. wink

Nice job, I like the diamond plate on the uprights, kind of set it off. You can tell he worked hard on that.

Originally he was going to put some on there, but he decided against it. When I build mine I won't be putting them on either
