I know it's not a cummins, but my little Samurai still has a VW 1.6TD in it. :thumbsup:

So this weekend with all the rain I actually had time to tinker the shop. I decided to make a bumper for the samurai. I used 2x4 3/8" tubing for the main portion, then 1/2" plate for the other section. The pipe section was from some 2 1/2" pipe I had laying around. I installed a set of 11,000lb D rings and a receiver hitch for a winch later one. I tied into the factory crossmember as well to reinforce the bumper and gusseted the bumper as well. I painted it in rustoleum hammered finish black (great paint BTW!). How's it look?





I also plan on drilling and tapping the back section for an NPT fitting and using it as an air tank. The ends are caped with the 1/2" plate.

Thanks everyone. First time I've built a bumper. Now I've gotta get started on the rear!
