800lbs for a bumper is just foolish.

its mainly for the front bumper, but the front bumper is going to have a receiver hitch that i will be pulling alot and supporting alot because i have a heavy duty 16' trailer i move around alot, i just want to make sure that my front end will support the heavy duty bumper that im getting made/making

i dont see a problem with that just build a front bumper that uses a hitch that mounts through the frame in the front. the make some mount that mount the bumper to the frame. that way all the weight will be put onto the frame like it would with a hitch in the rear.
