Custom rear bumpers

I'm looking to make a custom rear bumper with reverse lights mounted in it, has anyone done this or have a custom rear bumper idea to show?

Very nice.
Can you give an estimate on weight?
I've been contemplating fabrication for front and rear bumpers and really fighting myself over weight vs solid construction.

More pics. She's primed. I'm not the best at estimating weight but I would guess under 50lbs. And I would def fab one up yourself, the stuff u can buy is so thin in metal and really pricey. Mine is 1/4 c channel that I boxed in the ends. I prob have less than 100 bucks in it with the rings, receiver, and steel. More pics to come

Where in NEPA are you located? I am originally from the Tunkhannock area and I think I recognize your YJ from several thousands of miles in my YJs

This is really nice. What size welder did you use? I have a Lincoln 135 and I'm not sure if it's big enough to put solid welds on steel that thick. What do you think>

If you want to go off-roading take a Land Rover.
If you want to come back take a Jeep.
