Not to sound rude but I think it looks way unfinished and not very aesthetically pleasing

I think it needs to wrap around the sides and maybe put a piece that runs right under the grill and wraps around to connect everything together. Also something needs to be done about the air damn it just looks out of place. Its kinda hard to explain but I do think you have a solid start to what can end up being a very nice bumper!

i really wasnt making it to do much with it. it was just a boredom type thing to do and practice on my welding. im eventually gonna put an actual brush guard on there if i can get one at a good price.

I say keep going with what you've started!! In the end you will have something no one else has plus most important the satisfaction of sayin "yup I built that" everyone starts somewhere and if you look at the pics of my truck you are farther along than I sir!! I know I certainly won't ever fault anyone for trying so keep going cause I wanna see where it goes lol!! There's my inspiration for the night
