    The bumper can be lifted by a hi lift with no problem/ bending or weld cracks.

    Edit: Also the camera makes it look wide but it sits flush with the fender

    Close-up pics of the welds?

    I'm not being difficult -- I'm just asking so your craftsmanship is front and center and people know what they'll be paying for.

    Have you fabbed any other pieces? Do you have your own bender or use a shop?

    Clean so far, btw. :) The lower corners of the bumper looks like they might dig in without a wider skidplate but that's an easy design fix. If the fabrication quality is there, design can be honed going forward. :thumbsup:

    I'll get some closer pictures of the weld when i get home tonight. Most likely everything is going to be mig, if you want tig, you have to wait a month til i start school again then i can use the tig welders.

    That was my first build. Most of this is probably going to be a garage build, unless tig then It well be in a welding class. Also getting a bender soon, This one was bent using a jd2 a classmate had, I can also do 1 1/2 in tubing using a JMR bender we have in class

    Not doing any major work right now, Parents want me to focus in academic classes instead of welding.
