Theres a red ex somewhere on this forum. That has the bumper i want but cannot find it again

I have a feeling you're thinking of Toms97XLT (maybe a different combo of caps and lowercase).

That would be a "more better" forum name than my current one. But it's possibly mine. There's not too many red Explorers with bumpers.

I just figured out what I was thinking. It's the name of your registry and that's what I always see in my email haha. Guess it took me long enough to put that together.

What size tubing do you guys use for your bumpers? Looking at pricing.

I know my my rear bumper is 2"x3" 3/16" wall..

I "think" my front bumper is actually the same as I don't think I would have used 1/8" wall tubing...

My rear bumper is made mostly out of a old structural beam; 7x7" 1/4" thick, cut with a plasma to match the rear of the OEM bumper. The sides were added later and are 1.25", 120 wall DOM with the open area filled with 1/8" plate. The tire and gas can carrier main pieces are out of 1.5" square tubing, 3/16" wall.

Front bumper is 3/16" plate, except for the center section where the frame and winch mounts are, which is 1/4" plate. Light hoop is 1.5" 120 wall tubing.

Most bumpers made completely out of tubing will be 120 wall DOM, 1.5-2.0" ID. It is a good blend of strength, rigidity and light weight that would suit most needs.
