Homemade Bumper Replacement

Over Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to build the bumper I have been sketching and thinking about for a couple months. Thought yall might enjoy.

Getting Started with 4" sch 40 steel pipe.
(kinda looks like I'm doing "The Robot").

Marking template for diamond plate "deck" 1/8in.:












Cardboard template for skirting:






















And this is how it sits so far:

I still have to take it off the truck and do a little more welding on the back and prime/paint the back. Lots of grinding and some minor trimming to do on the front then paint. All in all I am very satisfied with it so far. I'm gonna add a 2" light bar in front of the grill.

I also wanna give a special thanks to my brother for helping me with the project.

Where did you tie the bottom of skirting into? Or is it just hanging?
