Update On My Custom Bumper

Here it is, in semi and finished state. I for theose concerned with the factory mounts holding, did add additional mounts to bolt to the frame.



























I will be offering these for sale if anyone is interested. I'll soon be developing a new front bumper as well.

bottom bar on the sides should be closer in then the top, other then that looks good and looks like it will hold

Pretty sweet bumper. I'd consider one depending on the price

My back tire isn't flat! It's "aired down" for rock crawling!

That's a really nice set-up. I like that style for a bumper. I would run one of yours on my XJ, but it wouldn't match my front bumper at all. have you tested its toughness yet?

It looks much better! But you will need a vendors account in order to sell them on JF.

Yeah, nice work on the bumper. I like how it wraps around on this sides too.

If you gotta do something for a living. You might as well have some fun doing it!

She's a 96, 4.5 inches on 33's. 30 front, 44 rear, armored & wishin i can wheel it like i stole it.

I like the center recovery point, as it will distribute the pull throughout the entire structure as opposed to one side or the other.

Yes, I am going to make a carrier, it will swing out similar to the warn unit, it will be an option able to be added on when ordered, I'll have one done next week sometime, I have customer vehicles and other work to finish first.
