I'd have to sharpen my welding skills or get the help if one of my more experienced friends. I don't see a bumper coming alone for a few months though, so I have time. Building on a high school budget is so tedious..

Practice practice. bumpers are fairly easy, just have to make sure you get your welds hot enough and take your time.

ever thought about the jcr rear panels .. they would look sooooooo good with that bumper. I really like how it wraps the cut and fold.

Actually yes i have, im waiting a little bit. Those will be the next big thing, i dont want oval light holes cut in it though. I want their quarter guards with oro's led tail lights and flush mount rigids for reverse lights.

Did some awesome wheelin today, realised i now have a reason for cut out sliders and door raise. Also going to be ordering 4" coils and hd relocation brackets in the next month or two.

Bumper held up awesome, slammed it hard on some rocks more than once and all it did was scratch the bedliner. Stiffeners are unreal, night and day difference while wheeling. No more creaks and cracks.
