First we used a plasma cutter to cut a 2-inch section of the square tube. Sure, we could have looked for a piece of 2x5x3⁄16 channel to use instead, but when scrounging for drop steel pieces, beggars can’t be choosers (and the remnants may become a rear bumper). The one other major component in this Sargesque bumper was a winch plate. After digging for a while we came across a 3⁄16-inch steel winch plate from Rugged Ridge (PN 12052.1710, $219.99) from our friends at Quadratec that we were pretty sure would work. We then notched the section of steel channel we’d cut to fit with the winch plate. Drill holes, add paint, and our clone bumper is almost done.
