Me neither! I wish I did though. Could do cool stuff like this!

I am learning how to weld as i go. Bought a little 110 welder from harbor freight. Got some scrap metal off a job site and just started welding. Still not great at it....lots of grinding.

I hope that set of hooks on the front of the bumper is tied to the frame or its nothing more then a coat hanger!

They will be eventually.

Jeepzjlover 05-21-2013 10:01 PM

Just out of curiosity if your gonna go to all that work to tie those in why not just build a new bumper that can use a d ring?

fastlane_5 05-21-2013 10:09 PM

I probably will buy or build a heavy duty bumper eventually. I just got bored and wanted to see how it would turn out.

Jeepzjlover 05-21-2013 10:22 PM

Well I would say it looks awesome I plan on doing that to mine with a less steep angle
