will the bumper hold up

This is some pics of my friends build. I thought somebody may appriciate it.
It's a 97 Nissan Hardbody 4X4. He isn't done. It is going to get a full exoskeleton. connect the front bumper to the nerf bars on the front fenders and over the cab. The rear bumper will be have runners coming over the bed as bed rails connecting to the nerf bars. The curb feelers that aren't on there yet will be mounted to frame then to the bed rails. Then is will need the power of a chevy 350. The middle of the front bumper is .5in plate and the sides are .25 in. The bracket that connects it to the frame is .75in. It sticks out 18in so you have a place to stand when you work on it. It is a little rediculious. He gets the metal free and most the welding rod.

The nerf bars are .320 in thick 4 in. pipe fittings. They alone way over 200lbs. No exhaust pipe chrome ones.

He just finished the front this evening
the best I can find of the nerf bars
