We chose to build the bumper from 2- by 0.120-inch wall DOM tubing. After making a few bends in the main loop, we set it in place to fabricate the mounts. You may have noticed we’re sporting a new front bumper on our truck. We shed the stock bumper and made plans to fabricate a bolt-on replacement. We started by cutting off the front frame horns flush with the factory bumper mount plates.
