    I made the winch tray and mounting brakets out of 1/4" plate and the rest of my bumper out of 3/16th. Same strength, less weight.

    I make my stuff out of 2x5 3/16th, but I'm thinking about trying out some 1/8th, just to see how it will old up.

    the 2x5 should be the rectangle size of the bumper like 2x4 as in lumber and the 3/16 is the thickness of the metal used. most bumper are made from 120 wall which is 1/8 inch thick so 3/16 should be fine unless you plan on ramming it into a lot of stuff

    Bumper Thickness

    im looking at front bumpers for my cherokee and found one for a decent price. 2"x5"x3/16" I really dont know what the 2"x5" means but i know 3/16. Is that too thin for a front bumper? should i be looking more at 1/4? i think 3/8 is a little over kill, but any thoughts, or experience with bumper strength is appriciated. Thanks,
