Default Custom front bumper! Pics!

Well when I bought this 93 It came with a painted/rusty front bumper. So I put a chrome one on and forgot about it. Then today I figured I would clean the old bumper up and make a offroad bumper out of it.
I also trimmed and plated the front frame for strength and clearance. I think it will look awesome with my 6" lift and 35s I'm installing when it warms up! Let me know what ya think!

No. I have a mint chrome bumper and I don't want to cut into it to
Swap it on.
What do you think about some off road lights in it?

Couple questions,

It isn't real sturdy is it??

Any possibility of building off of it to make an extreme off road bumper?

It's very sturdy! These bumpers have some steel in them! Unlike newer stuff! And I cut it under the top bend that reinforces it. As for adding on to it to make it super strong...it would be very easy to weld reinforcements to the back or whatever else. It's thick enough that I can weld anything to it and I might! I just hammered this out in a afternoon.
Plenty of other possibilities!
