Talking first tube bumper

So this is what i came up with in 2 days, i think its pretty good progress. Im pretty much done, i just wanted some opinions on it or suggestions if i should add more or not.

possible additions are..front tow hitch, another cross member to hold up side protection, bull bar on top

Definitely add a skid plate on that. It would look sweet if you used stainless steel plate. Don't do a bull bar, too high. Depending on how strong the sides are you might want to add support there. Good work, keep it going.

yea i was thinking about taking off the stock one and make a whole new one connected, or make one attached to it and over lap the existing one.

anyone have any experience with a front hitch?
