Default Custom Brush Guard Build

As some may know I am building a Brush guard that was discussed in another thread. This brush guard got a couple peoples attention including my own...
.


So in a simple tube bending software I designed something similar and ordered my steel.




The tube of choice is a 1 1/2" x 0.134 wall thickness DOM tubing...I already had the 1.5" Die otherwise I would have gone with 1.75" or 2" tube.
Today a bent up some more pieces and started mocking up on the mounting brackets






I had to run some errands for my wifes baby shower tomorrow so this is it till next week. An added plus to this is I removed the black plastic piece at the bottom of the bumper and love the look of this removed.
