    I want one. Soooo, how much would you say you invested and yes, time counts.

    I built my own desk once and someone asked to buy it, I said sure for $4000. Hahaha

    I spent about $150 at Metal supermarkets for pieces of 1/4" and 3/16" - turns out I had enough in my scrap pile to build most of it and only used about 1/2 the sheet of 3/16". I think the clevises and mounts were $80 on amazon, the winch was about $425 including a cover, snatch block and tree saver. The light was around $60 at HF and the bull bar was around another $60 off Amazon. Plus a pile of grade 8 hardware - but tractor supply sells by the pound at a ridiculously low price so that was was under $30 I'd say. So figure around $350 just to make the bumper if I didn't have the scrap. but of course that doesn't include the tools and consumables like the welder, plasma cutter, cut of wheels, flap wheels and Raptor liner I had left over from another project.

    Hands down! Probably won't end up doing that. How much did that cost you in total?

    Awesome job

    Awesome job. Even that cardboard model looks stronger than the factory plastic bumper on my Jeep.
