Bumper build

So I'm going to to build a set of bumpers for a jeep cj7 for a guy here in lakeland in the next few days.

Heres the front design,
The rear is pretty straight forward, just a 4x3" tube with shackle mounts and hitch welded onto it.

The top is front view, except for the little things going up, those are supposed to go straight back.
The bottom one confused me too, But I think its just the front view, and everything drawn on it is supposed to be straight off the back as well.
I didnt draw these, the guying wanting them came up with these.
I think they're going to look really good, I drove by a jeep today with something similiar on the front and it looked awesome.

So, guys.
Needing some opinions on what look to go for with the bike.
Im going to just use the wheels and suspension off of the frame, and build my own, slightly smaller frame. Still trying to keep to the minibike idea a bit. But not really sure what look I'm going for.
I'm actually kinda afraid that when My dad sees the rolling frame that hes going to want me to put together a motorcycle with the engine I got. Too expensive to go that way I believe.

And, I should be starting on the bumpers sometime this week.

Got started on the Bumper, Didn't get far today, Didnt have much time. But I got the tubing cut out to the lengths they need to be, and go the angles cut on the ends.
Didnt have a camera at the time...

Thats what I got done today, Cnc'd the shackle mounts, and capped the tubing and everything, Now just to get them mounted to the truck, then I'll be doing the tubing on the front.

I deleted all my other projects out of here, It was too cluttered.

Oh, they will.
We're only going with the single hoop now, instead of those side things too.

The guy paying for them is in love with them so far lol.
They will be done this week, And I should be getting a decent camera soon so.
