Front/Rear bumper build input

Just looking for some input/ideas for my front and rear bumper build for my WJ. I am going to model the front after smunns that he made for the gray goose. I have not seen but two of three rear bumpers on here, none of which fit my personal taste. My rear bumper will also include a swing out spare tire carrier which I have been reading about what is needed for that. I am looking for any tips or tricks, do's or dont's, pictures and things to include to make it very useful. The rear will also incorporate a hitch receiver into it. Thanks for the input

Robert

i hear ya about the looks of this bumpers. IMO none of them really look that great beacuse they dont match the bodylines as well as the stock bumper. (this is what i like about the IO front bumper). I'll probably just end up going for the protofab rear tire carrier for simplicity because I dont know how to weld. I wish you luck in your effort. I wish I could make my own rear as well!

In my build thread I put up a few pics of a rear bumper idea I had. Not really to scale, I was just bored and messing around. Link is in my sig if you want to check it out.

No Jeep :(
