Default Bumper build for farm truck

I have a 91 Ford Ranger that my youngest son drives daily for work around the farm and general use. He wanted to build a front winch bumper to go on the Ranger....so....here we go.

Agreed that it looks nice! I like that you started with the C-Channel and then went from there.

Nice job. That will be good for pushing the cows away from the gate.
Looks like a winch is planned as well.

Looks good.

On the Rangers and the TTB F150s, watch out when adding weight to the front, as it can really mess with the camber, in turn eating tires. I had to put adjustable camber bushings in all my TTB stuff when I had it, to get them aligned properly (even from normal spring fatigue and not winches or plows).

Yeah, nice work. Here in B.C. we'd call that a "Saskatchewan" bumper...

Very nice! Thats on my bucket list. My front bumper is caved in in the middle after I rear ended a Meridiot. (Thats what I call the fine people of Meridian, Idaho)
Its been 5 years or so...
