homemade steps, front and rear bumpers

Trying to get some ideas for the items mentioned in the subject line. How many of you "do-it-yourself" people have some pics to share?

Thanks......

Re: homemade steps, front and rear bumpers

I made my own steps, copied N-Fab's design.
I used 2"X2" square stock for the main tube and 1" black pipe for the hoops. Pictures in sig...

Ok, so maybe only one pic in sig... I'll try and add some updated pics.

Re: homemade steps, front and rear bumpers

I made my own ranch hand type winch bumper for my 1993 F-250.

It looks okay, but, I messed up twice. One, I built it way too stout. It is WAY too heavy weighing about 450 lbs with the winch. Maybe more.

Two, I put the roller fairlead too far from the winch and it doesn't spool good. The roller fairlead needs to be as close to the winch as you can get it.

I used 1/2" x 7" plate for the frame mountings and up-rights. All of the decking is 1/4" plate.
The pipe is schedule 40 on top, 4" up. And the bottom pipe is XX, double walled, extremely massive pipe.

I built a crane before I even started making the bumper.

I had to put in an add-a-leaf spring in the front to help carry the load. It really needs another one.

I had to move it forward so I could mount my train horns on the steel plate you see under the bumper. That is why it sits so far in front of my truck. That was the only place that I could find to mount the giant, triple horns I used to have on there.

I nailed a car and all it did was put some red paint on my bumber. It destroyed the cars passenger door and front quarter panel and smashed them in good.

Here are pictures I just took for you: Pictures
