Very surprised this thread seems to have dies a little. ANy chance you have been able to find time to actually fab any of this up? Very professional work. I agree that it is very generous and kind of you to give up your drawings, but I completely understand the time issue. I have no time to fab anything, in-fact it would be a chore to find the time to install them.
However, if in fact you are making them I'm very interested in making a purchase. Thanks...

Stumbled across this when searching for mounting ideas on my zj for a Setina PB400
push bar (used on most of the west coast police cars) that I scored at my
local recycling yard for 30 bucks. I like your angle iron mount in the rails idea better than the mounts I was going to fab.
So thanks for the great idea !

I like it a lot! Love the angle iron idea, welding the heavy stuff is a PITA. Will be adapting (if you don't mind) a little as I only need recovery points at the moment.

i bought a bull bar online for my 04 wj and they sent the wrong brackets and wont let me return them and i was wondering if you could please send me the dimensions or templates at email@example.com as soon as possible thanks alot!
Has anyone received the third drawing? i pm'ed Howler, but he must be busy. He hasn't responded back yet. I would be happy if he is producing these and sells them for less than Fawkes (no disrespect intended) as they are a bit too far out of my budget.
Just another old fart in a Jeep... watchout younguns!!!

Okay here we go....
First off, I'd like to thank everyone for the compliments.
Secondly: I do not have any brackets to sell and am not planning on fabricating any in the future (sorry).
I posted TWO of the THREE prints after reverse-engineering.
I was at the point of the third when things in my private life got thrown upside-down.
Long-story shortened:I am NOW living the bachelor-life and no longer am in possession of the WJ thusly I do not have access to the third part of the mount. And I can not make a third drawing.
IF I would come up with anything, it mostlikely would not work.
IF anyone has tackled this minor obstacle, PLEASE post up a drawing. It would be most appreciated.

Man! I miss that Jeep.
First off I want to thank you very much for posting your plans as they've saved me a lot of time, the only question i have is what is the inside width from bracket to bracket? I have a brush guard and would like to make sure it'll fit before I make the parts. If anyone who has made these or Howler could help me out with this dimension i would be greatly appreciated. Also since i'm thinking about it, how well is the 3/8" material holding up to pulling on them, only reason i ask is due to seeing competitors using 1/2" and 3/4" material?
