That looks sweet, and it looks like if you do some slight modification to the bracket design(provided you wouldn't mind) it could be used to just make recovery points.

Thumbs up

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...

Joined just to say thanks for the idea !

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 !

You've come at the right time, currently am fabricating my flatland front bumper, but I will be adding some modifications to it as I will be using your mounting brackets idea.

Super helpful

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.

Thanks for all the positive comments everyone.

Please feel free to modify as you need.
I would LOVE to see your variations on it. Show me what you've done. I LOVE PICS.

That personalized front license plate is now GONE as is the person whose name was on it.

GIZMO (WJ) is now my DD. Lil Red MY 94 XJ has taken his long awaited title as trail-toy (streetable) and is being such an attention-whore.

Its a Jeep...whatcha gonna do. (Statement not an actual question)

Very nice! I have a bull bar on my Expedition (mostly just for looks) and I want a more functional one for my 99 WJ. This idea is gonna make that a lot more possible. Thanks for sharing it.

Great job.. You sharing your plans for the brackets is a great contribution to wj owners and says a lot about you. I have an ARB bumper but I felt like I needed to say thanks for sharing! Thanks.

Tommy.

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.

No disrespect taken.

If someone is able to produce something similar commercially for under $160, more power to them (competition is a good thing). I think it's highly unlikely, as my cost ends up being just under $150.

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.

Mike.

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?
