Three Grade-8 bolts secure the front bumper to each of the two frame rails. Here, you can see the fantastic welds that hold the bumpers together. These bumpers are hand-crafted from 3/16-inch cold-rolled steel, and the winch bar is constructed from 1 3/4-inch-diameter by 0.120-inch-wall tube. Pretty burly stuff, as any bumper materials meant for trail use should be.
