Was it a weekend of dawn to dusk, or a month of a few hours on the weekend with beer in hand welder in the other?
Option #2. Definitely!

Thank you Jolly89!

So, I got to test out the bumpers this past March in Death Valley. Did Mengel Pass, Steel Pass and Dedekera Canyon. Class IV kinda stuff. I can say, without any reservations, that I love the new bumpers! Approach and departure angles were noticeably improved, so I didn't have to drag the butt of the truck through obstacles, and was able to head straight in to the climbs instead of taking them at an angle. I didn't get (uh, have) to use my new winch <sigh...>. Oh well, maybe next time

If I could fabricate that well, I would be pleased with myself.
