Well this is from my first jeep build with accessories, me, my father and a buddy built a front bumper and roof cage to fit a jeep cherokee, and damn, i think they look good myself, just showing these pictures to give people easy ideas on how to make their own bumpers and what not instead of spending alot of money when they dont have too! this is one of my first posting pictures thread so please correct me if i dont upload pictures correctly. i will start with the bumper first. this is also mentioned in the fabrication shop.
Here is what i started with.
then i took measurements off of a friends bumper with a winch spot ( cannot really remember deminsions, will post when i find out )
i used 3/16 C channell which i cut triangles where i intended for the channel to bend, i used a bench vice to bend it into shape.
then i measured my mounting areas and tack welded them on untill i got them mounted flush. i used 1/8 plate with the stock mounting holes. (its strong enough, with the abuse i put the bumper through so far)
here it is fitted with the top plates also welded into place.
then i needed a light bar/ push bar put into place so i took a old piece of my friends bumper and welded this into place but ended up taking it out and doing it again with fresh pipe becuase it didnt line up properly and it bugged me. also with shackle mounts put in place made of 1/2 inch flat bar welded inside and out.
me welding in the side pieces of my bumper, had to get cumfy!
painted and installed
thanks for viewing ! i will post the roof rack later on.
