I made that bumper when I was bored at work it went from something simple to 100 hours added up here and there because there was alot of holes in the C-channel and i had the time so i welded and grinded.... a lot. Those holes on the left have trailer outlets now

thanks for the input that is a good looking set up i was thinking similar for the rear bumper on my 95 and yeah apparently this isnt all that intriguing to others .... i thought it was a worth while topic

:whs: but honestly I've never seen an obs with anything other a ranch hand, brush guard, or just a plain old pipe bumper around here. Maybe someone will come out of the wood work.:poke:

Here's how i do it (but there might be other ways.) Open a free account on Photobucket.com. Follow the instructions to upload pics from your computer to the website. once you have your pics uploaded, click on the one you wanna post to the forum. When you click on the photo, you'll notice ot the right of the picture there are 4 links. select the bottom link called "IMG CODE" and click it once. it will say "COPIED" in small letters once you click it. Now open up your reply to the forum in PSN.com....right click...then select "PASTE" from that little drop down menu. it should paste that IMG CODE into your reply. When you post your response it should post your picture.

Let me know if that's confusing. i'm not the best teacher if you ask my co-workers!

Made this one for mine...

the upright piece is for the snow plow arm, there is a tab infront of the lights where the pump bolts on, the uprights have holes to catch a drop down bracket that the actual plow attaches to, even had removable arms that went back to brace the frame. I made it all myself, i'll try to find more pics.

The center section is 1/4" plate, the outer sections is 1/8" diamond plate, 3/8" 3x4 angle iron to catch the exsisting frame bumper mounts with hella gussets, 3 5/8" grade 8 bolts on each side.
