Home made brush guard

I get a lot of compliments on my homemade brush guard so I thought I would share it here. Its made of #18 rebar (the biggest made) and #8 rebar. I had a buddy that has a metal fabrication shop make adapters to bolt into the tow hook slots the tow hooks bolt back to the adapters. I added angle brackets that bolt in at the bumper bolts. See photos attached.

To each his own, definitely a different idea. Looks strong, which is the whole point! Nice build man.

I like the look! Didn't know #18 is the largest, good to know.

I was thinking of making side steps out of rebar.
