Re: Front bumper project(pics)
Looks good. I am not so sure that the single attachment is any worse than any of the expensive aftermarket bumpers, they mostly use the stock mounting locations. I would beef up your attachment to the frame if you want to use the bumper as a pull point. If the bumper is solid on the frame, the welded hooks will hold, probably until the bumper deforms. There are always trade offs with a custom bumper. Often, with a bumper that functions well off-road, it is tougher than the frame, and the frame becomes the weak point, you just have to decided which is the higher priority, off-road toughness, impact absorbtion.
