Build your own bumper plans?

I want to build my own front bumper and was wondering if there are any plans floating around for such. Looking to do something along the lines of the road armor. I can get most of the steel I need for free so I'm definitely planning on going this route.
Thanks

i did the same. searched the net, did find some plans, but it seemed easier to build it in place, I started with 1x1 tubing, and then covered in the gaps

Is that your own design or did you get plans from somewhere?

Just make your own using cardboard as a template. That's how I've always made mine.

Im trying to remember the company, its in IL that sells bumper kits. Everything is cut and all you have to do it weld it together (everyone that has done one said they fit great!) and I think the entire kit is only around 300 bucks!!!!

When I get to that point, thats what I will be doing!!!!!
