I am officially jealous of this build. I hope Greg designs a ZJ bumper one of these days, I'd glady sell my ARB for one of his bumpers.

The bumper was taking up too much space in the garage, so I got it mounted today and man, am I happy with this . Quality is an understatement , everything went as planned, the brackets to mount this thing are impressive, there is no doubt this bumper will take quite a bit of abuse before those tabs even move.







Why the bumper went in.....mangled rad support .





I bent the little sheet metal tab on the sides instead of cutting it:




Yup, this thing is S.T.R.O.N.G.




I manhandled it and mocked it up, really not that bad, just don't drop it, you'll likely lose a toe :




The mounting tabs were just 1/16" a little too close to one another for the bumper to fit, so out with the hydraulic spreader




And if someone could give me a hand with that final little push....mmgghhh!!!..... there, perfect .




Only 4 fun units are needed for this project











It will look much more proportional once I put in the 6" calyton's and get the JKs underneath with 35"s, but even at 3" with 32s, I looks much better than say an ARB. With the winch mounted, (especially with the wire rope), you will lose close to 1" of height at the front, so I'll likely keep the BB on top of the 6" coils up front to compensate, at least until I get synthetic line. I still need to hook up the winch to the battery, and get the lights, may go with yellow fogs....how bout yellow HIDs...mmmhhh let me think bout that.

Greg, you' da' man .

That bumper seriously makes me want a WJ.


Is it color matched or black? I can't tell from the pictures.

Color matched powder coat. Near perfect match IMO, hard to see in the pics.

You're right, it matches the grille perfectly. I definitely see it now. When you're finished with the project we're trading jeeps.

Nice install! Oh.. BTW.. you probably could have loosened the mounting plates, spread them open a little by hand, instead of using the jack method.. The mounting plates have a little play back and forth just for that reason.

Looks awesome man!
