Need Ideas For Custom Bumper

I JUST LOST MY BUMPER CUZ OF A ROCK LOL So was wondering if anyone had an idea of how to make a custom bumper? and also if anyone has removed the body molding on the bottom of the door? was wondering how it would look. then just running a piece of diamond plate across the bottom rocker panel. btw its a 93 zj laredo

thanks in advance,

You may wish to try a search for this kind of thread, there are MANY threads on bumper builds and cladding(the "door molding") removal.

To be brutally honest here, if you don't know how to make a custom bumper and have to ask a forum you will have a very hard time. Do you have a welder, a way to cut plate steel or bend tube, know how to weld?

like ZJTechie said there are alot out there but here is what I made.


Im guessing you have some experience or know someone who does in order to undergo something like this. when I made mine I wasnt a pro so it took forever but they look good and are very funtional. I had a great time making them, and few people can say they designed and made the custom bumpers on their rigs. so go for it and have fun.
