New Bumper Teaser, almost complete!!

Been working on this bumper the past week or so, with odd time with my buddy. Should be picking my truck up tonight and then getting it in to be powder coated on tues/wed.

The bumper faceplate is 3/8th steel all welded and gusseted to a 4x2 piece of channel tubing before the faceplate (faceplate is just to make it looks good with no seems) Made custom Lugs out of 1" thick steel. The spots on the faceplate are weld/heat marks from the rear, will be covered when powdered!

Nope, it is tied into the 4x2 steel behind the faceplate.. there's enough clearance, non issue

Thats why you park under a street light, or go to a walmart parking lot, or take better pics in the garage its being worked on in, or park infront of a friends car with their head lights pointed at it...

This is not a tow vehicle... won't ever be using it for towing.. probably not even safe to..lol

If I do any LIGHT towing like a utility trailer around the neighborood, I'll just get a drop hitch receiver

and it looks like its inline with the frame which is better for using it for recoveries.
