We had a ZJ Dropped off at the shop this week, so we figured, no better time than now to work on some DIY bumpers.

We'll keep updating this as we get further along.

Here is the design of the front:

I like it. Make it affordable and I bet you'll sell quite a few. Maybe even to me!

The word DIY was used I'm wondering if there will be some plans available.

Actually never mind there's no way I can order that living in Canada I'll get raped on shipping and duty. I can make something like that though.

Looks like it'd still work for the '93-95 crowd also. Wish I hadn't welded my winch plate on now ....

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Their fancy XJ kit is $283, I hope this will be in the same ballpark.
Their complete bumpers are very reasonably priced, as well.

I went and browsed your site and wanted to view the ZJ slider video (http://www.jcroffroad.com/slidervid.html) but got a 404 error.

Just a head's up...
