Pics of custom front bumper

Hey guys, just wanted to see what ya'll think of the "new" front bumper. I used the stock bumper, cut it off about 1/8" past the frame on each side and welded on a stinger. I still have to add a support brace on each side (feels pretty solid now though), cap the ends and remove the Jeep plastic piece so that I can weld down a winch plate. I'm going to add a set of 6" Hella's to it, but wondering if they would look better at the top or on the sides.

Let me know what you guys think of it, oh yeah, that's my 18 month old american bulldog posing with it.

looks good to me. when you get the support braces on it will look more like a finished piece tho.
good work

are all winch plates welded? or is that just what your doing?

Most winch plates are bolted on.

Looks great by the way!

Thanks for all of the appraisal!

Slippy, the more I look at it the more I'm thinking about not putting any supports on it. It's a pretty solid weld all the way around, I know it wouldn't take the weight of the jeep, but I think a wayward deer might not hurt it that bad.
