Built a Front Skid for a Toyota Guy Today

Made this front skid for a Toyota guy at work, today. I don't agree with his material selection (I recommended thicker), but, he says it's, merely, to replace the plastic one that came on the truck and he doesn't do any wheeling. It's made out of 16ga. hot-rolled and painted flat black. I took some logos off shared files on the net, vectorized and scaled them, used my CAD program to draw it up, and burned it on our plasma table. Our CNC press-brake is credited for the forming:

Hooray fabrication!
