Rear bumper ideas

OK, so my YJ has no rear bumper. I am thinking I want to make my own rear bumper. I have a stick welder, and a wirefeed, but I am certainly not a professional by any stretch of the imagination. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions about length, and choice of materials. I don't like round tubular bumpers, so I am thinking about using square materials. Just don't know what thickness or dimensions I should use. I wont be towing anything, but I am wanting to add D-rings to the bumper in case I need to be pulled/winched out.

Also, for anyone who has done your own, how did you mount it to the Jeep? Special tabs, or mounting hardware?

Love your thoughts!

I would suggest looking online for ideas, then making a "template" out of cardboard, and then going from there
