Need a new bumper

well, i need a new rear bumper now since mine is a "little" bent. I was thinking about making it out of 6" steel channel 1/4" thick. put a couple of removable D rings and a 2" receiver on it. Anyone have one or know where i can get one or have a pic of one? I would like something like they have on the back of the old army trucks... Thinking of making one for the front to.
also, anyone know the best way to mount those D rings. I was thinking of a bolt thru a tube that is welded and U bolted in...

Re: Need a new bumper

Sounds similar to the one I have on the back of my S15. Its a custom made 3/8" thick steel made to resemble a drop-hitch fullsize one. Its got a 1/2" thick plate for the step in the middle. I found it in a junkyard! For the D-rings, try a truck-body supplier. Thats where I found them. I bolted mine on the bumper right where the frame brackets weld on, using grade 8 bolts of course! I also got a big clevis that fits in the hole for the ball hitch(has 3 of 'em) that I use for the tow-strap. My friend made a similar one for the front of his S10 out of 1/4" steel. He even managed to keep the stock turn-signals(very trick!) Good luck.

Re: Need a new bumper

I can make you one of these bumpers for about $200 /- depending on exactly what you want? I would suggest just mounting a clevis to a piece os 2" tubing and putting it in your receiver rather than trying to attach it to the bumper. If you weld it or bolt it to the bumper then you risk pulling it through if you use it enough. Let me know.

JEEP it's wha's for dinner!
