Here is the old one. It was 7" almost 1/2 thick C channel. I broke a 9500 cable on this thing and it barely left a bend.

This entire thing is .120 1.5" tube. Half dom and half mild steel. It still has a way to go now but its coming along nicely. As i make more progress ill update this thread.

Looks good, but you need more support on the frame brackets or you will have serious issues as soon as you tap anything... You need a gusset or tube or something going from the lower bumper tube in the front to the rectangle tube going parallel to the ground or whatever meets the top support tube thing...

That gives me ideas for my Explorer, but that's after suspension... and that's several months out...

Here is just about the finished product now. I just need to do some more bracing and bolt the winch in now.
