Thanks guys. It took a couple months, only being able to work on it once in a while. Weighs about 250lbs, no fun to take off and on to check fitment...

I found an old Ramsey Winch Bumper for a '73-'87 Chevy/GM that I'm thinking of using as my base for a bumper deer slayer, credit to Raymo for the mock up that's been previously posted.  More as I get further into this, it's mocked up on my '95 parts truck, most of my attention is focused on going over the '94 Dump right now.  Raymo that bumper you built is just plain sweet, do you know if Adair salvage has much in the was of steel stock for my build ?
