Yup, sorry for digging up such an old thread. Did this ever come to anything? I'd be interested in this bumper if another batch ever came around again.

Here are some pictures of my final bumper. Unfortunately I have more time and money into it than would be feasible to sell. But you can get an idea of how it was put together.
Swing arm will accommodate a 35" tire, High Lift jack, CB antennae and 1 Gerry can.
The antenna is sideway because I canít get in the garage when it is up. For that matter I canít get the truck in the garage if I have 35 pounds pressure in my tires.
The 2" receiver is let into the bumper. The 2 rear recovery points go all the way thru the bumper and are face welded and the back is a solid weld (overkill). It is held in place with 10 grade 8 bolts
The bumper also has quarter panel protection that is very stout. I backed into a boulder with no movement from the quarter panel protection.
The pivot point is a 1500lb greaseable axle bearing so weight isnít a problem. The axle rod goes all the way the bumper and is welded top and bottom (overkill)
There are some things I would change on the next one but overall Iím happy with it.
Apologize for the dirt but havenít cleaned the truck since the Winter Romp

I'm after something slim that sits up over the x-member. I don't need a tyre carrier integrated into it but I want a 2" receiver and a couple of recovery points. Do you think custom is going to be my best bet?

Just finished my copy of the rear bumper in this thread. Wish I had beveled the corners but I forgot. It is a 1/4" thick 2x6 inch piece of steel. I have a Marsland Galvy Frame so it was already threaded in spots. It has 8 bolts holding it in place. I am going to add two more recovery points to it but I think I will use Dixon-Bates like I have on the front. They bolt on so no big deal to add them later. Just don't have the cash just now.
