Tube Bumper

So I started another project on friday and just finished it up!
There is a couple of things I want to add to it but that is for another time.
So everyone tell me what you think!

Very nice! I could only DREAM of making a tube bumper!


Could you elaborate on how you mounted it? Pictures of where it's mounted?

My only tiny little complaint is that it looks like the bumper is a little on the small side for your lights.

Also, you running a skid plate with the bumper?

Very cool, but it isn't finished yet! You REALLY need a grill or rock guard to protect the condenser from stone damage.

Does it have recovery points built in, and is it strong enough to use to jack the car?

Please post some detailed pics of the build.

This next weekend I'm going to add some expanded metal from my roof basket build for a grill/rock guard. I still have the stock tow point as of now and it seems to be strong to use a jack on. I'm still planning on stuff to add on to it.
