Well I have decided to build me own bumper.

Here are the beginnings of it. It is the basic frame waiting on the tire swing pieces to come then I am going to box it all in with 12 ga steel.






will add more as I progress, waiting on the kit now.

I think the bumper is done, will take it off, add a few welds from the back side, weld up all the seams and the grind and paint.

I also think I am going to order a CO2 tank bracket and mount it on the drivers side for carrying my CO2 tank.







Add a cross bar that fits really tight and nice between the top of the receiver and the bottom of the horizontal bars I welded to the side of the hitch receiver mounting plats. I think it will nicely add to the strength, also may add a couple of verticals between it and the main cross piece once it is off for finishing.



Hopefully will be able to finish it up over holiday closure at work, then it is clayton time.

it also covers the emission crap on the drivers side, I may look at relocating that up under the jeep in the future.

got some paint on it, after I welded up the seams and did some sanding. Not perfect but will until this spring when the weather is nicer and I can sand and paint it a little better.
