the middle hole my front hitch comes through. the bumper is just sitting on the front hitch in the pictures. the other two could be used for fog lights or just to get more air to my radiator.

Put some pieces between the corners and the bumper. Looks good so far though. Can't wait to see what it's going to look like when it's done.

it has a lot of potential! after you weld the joints and grind them smooth, fix the gaps on the sides, get it painted up, and lights in it i think i could look pretty bad ***.

looking good man, where my pieces were spot welded I used some filler for my gaps before I painted them and it cleaned them up pretty good.

just an idea

most of it is 2" x 6" 1/8" with some 3/16" 2 1/2" angle iron to beef it up. if you look closely at the pictures you can see how it mounts to the frame. two tie down straps lol! i havent made the mounting brackets yet.
