YJ front bumper tips
I recently found out the hard way that the stock bumper doesn't full protect your fender. The tree totally missed the bumber. Before I replace my fender, I plan on putting a DYI trapezoid front bumper on the width of my YJ. I'm looking for tips and advice for a tree proof(at crawl speed I know) front bumper. I plan on having spots for my D-rings and wonder if I should weld the post through the front to the back. I also wonder 4x2 or 5x3 and thinkness. Last is mounting ideas. If it is homemade(trape zoid or not) post pictures. Tips are most helpful. And yes I have scoured all week for info and if you know where helpfull threads are, post them to please. If you have seen this post before it was in frabrication, but I had no responses.
I used 2x4, but mine is way shorter than full width. I just avoid the trees. IMHO, full width in any type of rectangular tubing would be fugly. If I was going full width, I'd go the pre-runner round tubing style.
