I wouldnt use C channel, there is far too much material in the corners. I made a pretty good looking bumper on my 97 F150 from 10in C and the whole thing was far too heavy. I've made a few tube/prerunners since then, but now I'm in the works for a box bumper for my '08 F250.
Try finding a piece of 3/16 rectangular tubing, like 8x6 or so and then look for some pictures of the trailready bumpers for you truck to get some ideas.
Where in Texas are you?
