well the main purpose in designing one should be for protection, a winch, and off-road lights. best idea would be to check out all the companies that make the hd bumpers and pull ideas from all your favorites, then combine into a bumper that fits your needs. these have always been favorite companies of mine

and if and when you need lights, Hella 500s are the best in my book.

when you make it, use nothing less than an 1/8th inch steel. thats pretty solid, could even run a section of 1/4 inch plate right in the middle for a bit of brute strenght

i've always been a fan of stealth bumpers, no light bars, no grille guards, just straight beefy bumper

Thanks for the input guys. To answer your question though I was really just going for looks. I had planned on getting a winch but have decided against it because I really have no need for one. I do plan on putting a total of 4 lights in it with d shackles for hook up and maybe welding in a receiving hitch too
