Aluminum Bumper 2008 Ranger

Hey folks,

I'm currently in the works of fabricating my own bumper for my Ranger and have done some research but I require some further guidance. I have seen plenty of custom bumpers built with 1/8" and 3/16" mild steel. I wanted to build something similar except I was going to mount Setina bullbars and so i wanted to make the bumper out of Aluminum. The custom bumpers end up being very heavy as it is and the Setina is already aluminum, do you think this whole thing is doable or am I chasing the unachievable?

you could make it out of Aluminum sure. Just stay on the 3/16-1/4" side with your plate/tube and should be plenty strong.
