Just the angle of the picture. Plenty of room there.

After hating the rear bumper and the way it stuck out in the back for 2 years and Finally got off my azz and got after this project!

Bobbed off frame right in front of crossmember. Then inlet said frame for a 1/4 X 2" angle iron running full width of frame. right under the body sheet metal.



Then installed said angle iron into frame for a new cross member


Then took a chunk of 6 inch wide by 1 3/4 inch deep "C" channel and went to modifying it to make it look like a bumper


Welded up some shackle mounts

Proceeded to drill holes in afore mentioned angle iron and welded some nuts on the back side



Then put the finishing touches on the bumper

And VOILA!!!! New bumper; about a hundred bucks, using all new materials!!!!Departure angle----GREATLY improved!!!! I still need to build a rail around the top edge to protect tailgate if backing into something. but that is in the works!!
