On your bed supports, i would add some more tubing under the floor and connect it to the bumper or frame etc. I had some on mine with the dovetail (although mine wern't connected) and it ripped the floor of the bed out in about a month. Connecting the sides it should be ok; wouldn't hurt to be on the safe side though.

Lucky man. I start up my second round of welding classes here come late August, so I'm hoping I can get some free scrap metal to make some stuff out of.

Bumper looks great though.

Thanks for the suggestion. Yeah I probably should tie it in from under the bed out to the frame or the back of the bumper. Never hurts to be on the safe side like you said.

I will make sure to copy your bumper when I do mine in a couple weeks. Satin black looks nice. Are your D-ring tabs 3 inch long?

Andrew, maybe you should pm him. He's not on as much as he used to be. I normally wouldn't say anything but I saw you posted in both of his bumper threads.

Some members got it at lowes, I forget the other places mentioned. Maybe summit.
