bumper build similar to the WAAG

i like the WAAG bumper i see on here sometimes but i heard theres no way to get one. so im going to a friends house and im gonna dig through his scrap metal to get some materials to make my own. i believe ill add tow hooks if possible and of course light tabs. so what would be the best metal for it? i was thinking angle iron since theres alot of it around. i just dont want it way to bulky.

if it comes out good would anyone be interested in buying one? We might be able to make a few if we make one for my truck and everything looks right.

if anyone at all can give me measurements on how tall the WAAG bumpers were and the width and how far they stick out from the grill and bumper it would be great.

I would think it would be better to buy a bull bar. But if not most likely angle iron but you won't be able to get it close unless you are looking at one when building. Or if you know a lot about them. But good luck with it.

I would like to see it and then maybe. If it is strong and with withhold a crash then that would be sweet.

I have this part left over, its the bottom half of the grill guard I cut to put on top of my bumper, you can have it if you want it.
