i have a question about front bumpers like this. where do they mount? cuz last time i checked, the plastic bumper cover was held in place by sliding onto two studs and a handful of plastic rivets. is there something i'm missing? could someone post just their bumper and where/how it mounts to their ZJ? that would be much appreciated

My bumper mounts inside the frame rails. If you remove the plastic bumper and styrfoam, you will see two oval holes that let you see inside the frame rails. I notched the bottom out of my tubing and slid it in through those holes as far as I could (about 14 inches). Looking at the rail from the outside, you will see 4 bolt holes.

A lot of designs just make a plate that has 4 nuts welded to line up with those holes. Lide it in and bolt it up, then attach your bumper to the part that extends from the front of the jeep.

There was a pretty good writeup on fabbing a bumper, over on pirate I think. Google around for a bit, it should be there somewhere.
