Default Custom Rear Bumper

Hey guys im thinking about welding together a custom rear bumper for my ranger. Gonna be using sheet metal and was wondering if anyone knew was gauge steel is commonly used. Im gonna be down at my uncles welding shop this weekend and my poor stock bumpers been rear ended twice by stupid college kids on campus. Luckily the mounts are good so im gonna work from there. Thanks for any advice or ideas.

For a bumper I would probably do 1/4" but if you are trying to save money I wouldn't go any smaller than 3/16".
