      Looks good but you should add some tubes going from the bottom to the outer bends/corners where it wraps around the truck, It would make the bumper a lot stronger.

      I would do a 20" or whatever fills the middle section of your bumper.

      As far as I know, I don't think there is a company that produces them. It would have to be custom built. RLC on here makes a really nice looking plate bumper though.

      Looks really nice. It looks like the one Loren built for me. I wish I had the skills (equipment and time).

      Now that my new build made its debut in Moab and isn't a secret anymore, here are a few photos of my front and rear bumpers I built. They are 1/4" steel for the frame & winch mounts and 1.75"x.120" tube. Each tube is continuous and passes through the plates. The smaller tubes are 1.25"x.120" tube for the LED bar hoop and rear body protection. The goal for both was simplicity, high clearance and lightweight.

      Very nice.
      The only thing I don't like about my plate bumpers is the weight. Front with the winch is about 120 lbs, rear with tire and full gas can is well over 250.

      Wrong thread, I know, but can we get more pictures of your sliders? And what happened to your other Explorer?
