Got Mud, you going to Frostbite this weekend?

Here's a shot before we were done, but you get the idea. There are a few other plates around the receiver that bolt to the crossmember, as well as two struts that run from the frame rails to the curved section of the top tube.

Bumper looks good man! I am thinking about going down. How about you?

Yeah, I'm planning on going. A lot depends on how wet it's going to be. If it's a swamp, I'm skipping it. Just not in the mood for body damage.

BTW, updated pic as of 30 minutes ago. Prepping for paint.

Great bumper build. You got me rethinking my plan. I too need the hitch. I may have to copy parts of this bumper. Really like the bolt through shackle tabs.

I'd just likely notch the tub to allow the hitch receiver. That part always floods on me anyhow.

Both of you guys have great builds!

This is a great bumper! I'd buy one. Are you taking orders?

Any chance you can rehost the pics? It's the best rear bumper that I've almost seen. I think...
