Home Made Rear Bumper Ideas

I need some pictures or ideas of modified, built, or bought custom bumpers. I'm debating whether to use steel tubes or something. Any suggestions or preferences are welcomed

I just primed it and used a satin black spray can. By using the can its easy to touch up when needed. Also when building I found two bearing kits for the swing out and I used the larger one.
