Re: Bumper feedback
I'm assuming the proto is sitting above the usual mounting location. (Kinda hard to open the back door otherwise! LOL) Have you considered tapering the leading edge like you did the lower edge. You would be less likely to snag something and hold. It would push you sideways a bit instead.
You could also think about quartering some tubing for the inside corners and/or use some radiused gussets to tighten up the fit at the body outside corrner.
Great start, dont forget the reciever hitch! The bitty 1-1/4" reciver is about all a zuke can pull anyway, and could be used as a solid connect point for a tow strap or even have a small winch socketed in. Makes it portable front to rear easy, and can be stored in the garage to prevent theft when not oin the trail.
Shoot, that could be a good sideline for you too. Winch recievers.
