        ??? When you bolted it up, you just ran a bolt from the outside face, through the box, and into the bumperette holes??? I have been trying to decide what I was going to do since I removed my bumperettes. I really like your design ideas. Pretty cool!

        Did you use any bushings or spacers between the bumer and the frame, or do they bolt directly together?

            CORONAREDYJ i love the design that is almost exactly what i have drawn up to build. How much pulling have you done with it? cause right now my biggest worry is pulling on that rear cross member, but if you havent had any problems then im just going to go for it,

                After waiting nearly 4 months I finally got my new rear bumper/tire carrier from 4wd. Its the 4wd brand and it is build like a brick sh#@ house. It is a lot heavier than the factory stuff and looks like it would win a battle with an abrams tank. Hardest part of the install was taking off the old bumperettes. (thank you mr torch) I don't have the welding equipment or talent to make my own but it looks like a pretty simple job (except for the tire carrier) Just made from heavy rectangular steel tubing (2x6 maybe?) with some small tubing welded in the reinforce the holes for the bolts. If your creative you can probably make something pretty cool.

                  I am more than proficient with a welder.. as long as it isn't sheet steel. (my brother tho.. he could weld tin foil if it was made out of steel :P ) and since my dad has a dead combine row out back i won't have to buy any steel... they have about every size/thickness steel in them somewhere. Like i said i won't have to buy any material. I can try the reinforced stock bumper plan.. if it isn't heavy duty enough i can always start one from scratch thanks for the ideas !!
