Front or back?????? usually when I build a bumper, I start by building the mount, then build off of it to form the bumper, doing it the way you have chosen is a pain in the ass. its difficult to hold an awkward, and heavy item in place and then start fabricating mounts.....for a rear bumper look at the mounting points of the bumpers on http://www.marlincrawler.com/htm/r_bumper.htm or http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=482618 (half way down)
