Default Another Rear Bumper

Finished my wrap-around rear bumper the other day. The bumper is 2.5 X 3.5" .25" wall tube. The mounts are 2.5 X 2.5" .25" wall angle and .25" stock. The D-shackle tabs are .75" stock. All the other misc parts are also .25" stock. It will be held on by eight, 10mm bolts for the stock mounting and an additional nine, 1/2" grade 8 bolts through the frame rail. The design of this bumper was largely inspired by HS00XJ's rear bumper. At this point it is primed and painted and should be going on later tonight or tomorrow.

I only gusseted the mounts. Didn't on the skirt. We'll see what happens. Easy to fix if it bends
