Default Need advice making front bumper

Hi everyone, I'm new to this site, new to rangers lol mine came without a front bumper so I want to build one. I was wondering if anyone has plans/measurements/parts list/diagrams or any advice to help me with this. I was thinking just like a top bar and then two bars that come down like a V to a skid plate... Nothing to fancy, i would like it to be able to bolt on also... Should I use square tubing or round? And what kind? Bare in mind my tools are pretty much a welder, angle grinder and a skilsaw haha that's why I was considering square tubing and just cut the angles instead of getting it bent...
Please help!!! Lol oh yeah my trucks a 98 xlt 4x4
