    Yeah, i'm not worried about it. I've actually never had my HUMMER stuck *knock on wood*. Should I need it, I am confident it will hold up. We used really heavy, thick steel plate.

    We reverse engineered THIS. PM me if you want me to actually send measurements - you may want the gussets a little closer together than I did so you don't need to cut out for the recovery hooks. I'm not concerned with the strength with the cuts, however and actually like the look as-is.


    Thanks for all the positive feedback! I'm happy with it!!
    Current: '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. to build thread!

    Sold: '07 H3 Lux w/ a ton of stuff done to it. It's in the garage still if you want to see what was done.
