I was wondering about the same issue brought up on mud. Why didn't you square cut the bumper and weld in the anchors from the back and the front? Figure it would offer added strength. Otherwise really nice work!

Looks great but shouldn't you be working on finishing up my trailer first before you start on other projects?
