    The things required to pull bitches
    Well I decided to sit down and build a rear bumper. I saw this http://dmzfab.com/images/rear.jpg and wanted something exactly like it so here I went.

    54 inches of 2" x.120 d.o.m
    and 60" of 1.5 x.120 Hrew.
    3/8 inch mounting plates
    2" hitch reciever
    and a Miller 250 dx tig.

    finishing it all up tomorrow.

    Well for the hitch, I was going to relocate the plate off to the left, and Tig in the Hitch under where the 6 was. then add 4 corner gusset plate and hope when i get yanked it wouldn't go. Other plans was to add a Clevis and a shackle to the 2 vertical bars on the side of where the plate is. But if i have a hitch i wouldn't need that.

    No not yet, Wish I got LT. Im a broke ass college student, so i try to build things instead of buying it. I can make a LT kit, I just need someone to draw something out with some measurements. 50/50 anyone?
