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.

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

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.

not bad at all finished and painted. id still consider redesigning that recovery point though. i chuckled at the back view cause it looks like u chopped a safari rack and used it as a back bumper lol. any plans to make a rear tire carrier for 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.
