This is my first forum post here. I got my FJ 3 weeks ago and have been working on this push bar since. It's not done but here are some photos
this is one of the 2 arms that holds the cross bar. It's made from 4" wide 3/8" steel flat bar.
this is the bar welded up. As you can see I welded a 1" strip of .25" flat bar to the edges of the 3/8" arm. This creates an I-beam structure to make the entire bumper more rigid.
I have plans to make an upper mount to the back of the big bar to fully support the bar for impact but I will see if its necessary since it might be rigid enough on its own.
I wanted to keep a stock look with some strength of a steel bumper.
