custom rear bumper for my YJ

So i got tired of having the little bumperettes on the back of my jeep, so i decided to make a new heavy duty(ish) bumper.

Its made of 2"x4" C channel steel, with 2x2" tubing with a plate attached to each side (there is 2 2x2 tubes) the plates of holes alligned with the bumperette holes, then i angle cut the sides, primed and painted it. turned out pretty nice.

looks great nice job. Mine was purchased I can melt metal but not weld. I always seem to make somewhat of a big booger looking weld.
