custom rear bumper build..pics!

hey guys, just wanted to share some pics of the rear bumper that ricky and i have been working on. its pretty stout, i used 3"x6" and 3"x4" rec tubing that is a 1/4" thick. i still have some stuff to do. some touch up welding(because I'm sorta of a newbie welder ) , a few gussets, couple shackle tabs, etc... anyway here are some pics, don't be to harsh


used some tape as a cutting guide when we cut off the roll pan, dented corners, etc..



ricky doing a lil


got mud?



done hacking the bed up!



built some frame brackets, (3/8" plate)



^still need to gusset them.


heres what i started with.



then made some 22.5 degree cuts











then we cut some angles to meet up with the smaller side pieces, and the wheel well.




heres how it sits now.







not perfect but I'm happy

1. Repair the wind tunnel of a hole in your pants. Get a welding spark in there and you'll be doing the gay leprechaun dance.

2. Oh the joys of welding with a stick machine.

3. Looks beef but I'd reinforce it from the sides to the frame as well.

4. Take it back off and cut a hole in the middle and mount a hitch receiver in it for a recovery point after you do #3.

5. Nice work thus far.

You never get to walk on the water if you don't first step out of the boat.

take your time and do it right

also for grinding use the flapper discs, they leave a smoother more finished look.

i got some more work done on the bumper today. got a reviever in there, and some shackel tabs that i made from some 1/2" plate. heres a few pics.














i also made some bracing for the side pieces out of some 1.5" square tubing.
i know its not the best angle for support but thats all i had to work with becouse my frame mounts were in the way. but its plenty stout, i doubt i even needed it.
