Here's a hitch/bumper i'm building.




The pipe is 3.5" with a 3/16" wall. The receiver is tied into both tubes very well, and the mounting plates are 3/8" plate steel. Should be very tough...















Yes, i know its not for a Jeep, but you could build a narrower one for a Jeep and never need another rear bumper... :D

Well, I would then recommend adding a spigot and filling 'er up with some jack Daniel's. It can keep you warm, start your truck, and given to the neighbor's cat for some fun times!
