    Hit me up before you buy pre-bent tubes. Or measure out what you want and I can get it bent up.

    Awesome dude! That's great! You definitely get a huge sense of accomplishment and satisfaction by building it yourself. I'll be doing a full plate bumper now. Kinda going for the pelfreybilt look. Couple of the projects I've done recently.

    Bought some used ome 886 and nitrocharger shocks from @44357 (thanks again), should help with the weight of the bumper

    Need to finish bumper

    Thanks, welds are pretty boogered on the tube sections because i suck with a grinder and my notches were terrible but I'm happy with how it came out.

    Thanks man! I ended up getting some small 45 degree bent tubes online pretty cheap but I appreciate you offering to bend them!
