Heres my last bumper. Ran this for a short while and just took it off after finding its faults. Left winch fairlead too exposed and it got busted up on a rock since the winch/parts are made so cheaply - you can see its pushed in slightly in this pic from a few weeks ago; now it's completely destroyed. Going to replace with similar design, but with flat fairlead instead of roller and everything just a tad higher up for approach angle. 16ga plate with music wire, MIG welded (flux core)



BTW if thinking about using a home brazed/soldered front bumper...think again - especially if you plan on actually using it or potentially hitting something with decent force. Brazed joints are just not the way to go on anything structural or that you actually intend to use and need to last more than 1-2 decent hits or falls. Then again I built my rig to stand up to abuse instead of be a shelf queen

This is my solid steel rod mig welded stinger bumper. It's actually saved the front of the truck from nasty impacts and the stinger has kept it from going over forward on steep declines lol.

Perkolator is right Mig weld is stronger, but as long as you have nice tite and clean joints silver solder is very strong.
I tried to break these joints by hand and couldn't. Only broke a test piece by putting it in a vice.

Sometimes it takes some doing to get a tite joint.

holly SHT you guys rock. i want every one of them. do you know there are guys out there that would buy those bumpers like my self. i can weld but i don't think i can weld those small pieces. but i think i'm going to give it a try. keep the pics coming. ya'll all do great work. i really like the exo cage and the sliders on the mini truck. the f350 also has a cool bumper i can go on & on.
