Built my 2nd bumper

Finally finished my second bumper. Tried to make this one 100% bolt on but since my buddy didn't want to take off his sway bar we couldn't use the mounts. He didn't want me to weld to his frame but I had to for the bottom support. I guess it's like 80% bolt on lol.

For the bottom support where its welded, to make it bolt on couldn't you drill a few holes there and then bolt a plate there to weld to? (If that makes sense)

Both bumpers look awesome though!

What kind of pipe did you use? 4130 chromoly? Those bumpers look so damn easy to fab im going to bite the bullet and make one for mine here soon, so im just wondering what to use and how much of it i need to make a bumper like yalls. Also what thickness was used for the skid plates?
