rear bumper build

Finally got myself a tube bender and started fabbing up a much needed rear bumper. I used BendTech Pro software to help me not waste any tube. Its made from Sch 40 1.5 inch pipe which is just under 2 inch diameter. What are your thoughts?

finished up and painted rustoleum stainless steel for easy touch up. Licence plate mounts in the reciever so I can remove it for towing or pulling stuff

That bumper looks awesome! How did you like using the bend tech pro software? Is it worth it?
