D links are a must, If it wasnt for those lights, the bumper would look plain.. Still nice regardless... How about a skid plate?

yeah i know..lol, its as good as a limeted garage build as I could get. I had a job-box as a fab table and small space on the garage floor. It turned out close for wingn it, But I can still chop the welds on the pass side or driver side wing and bend it if need be. Its kinda bothering me too cause I like stuff even, and I made it so it stands out to me alot.

Got a little more done on the bumper today. was about to tackle the fog lights but I had to leave for a party. Got the 2" receiver and my d-ring tabs on. Got them throught the bumper and welded to the bumper mounts to make sure its as strong as possible. I'll be trying to figure out the fogs tomorrow and hopefully get them in. still need to weld on some more support to the back and grind everything out good,but after the fogs.

I forgot the cam was in b/w for a bit heh. Oh and I added a 1/4" plate piece above the receiver for strength like I did on my rear bumper, not in these pics thought

You should put your front plate on a hinge so you could just lift it up when you need to access your receiver. The bumpers lookin good!

yeah that or I'm thinking of making a mount for the receiver using some 2" square stock and a flate piece of 1/16 plate. then I can just take it on and off.

yeah for sure it was much needed, as well as the welds cleaned up and some real paint. I'm hoping th fogs look sweet. But if its looks dorky I can always fill it back in with plate.
