That little riveted tab is the only thing that holds it up other than the hinge. And its just covered with those foam interlocking floor tiles from lowes.
thanks, exactly what I wanted to see; it looks simple enough for me to attempt similar and does what I want. thanks for posting this up!

jkemt Looks good. That bumper is on my short list when the time comes.

robdizzle I love my rugged ridge bumper. I ended up keeping it as the stubby bumper but instead of paying the 125 or so for the end caps I got a couple plates of steel, made a template and welded them on for a pretty clean look.

The shelf I made out of a trifold pickup tonneau cover that actually lifts on a hinge behind the seat. Took a bit of fabricating but worked out very well in the end..
do you have more picks of the shelf? I like the design.

Where'd you get yours from? I was thinking about getting that, but without the winch and with the stubby end caps.
