made a rear bumper




Planned on starting my rear bumper yesterday. Got the stock plastic off, and saw that there isn't anything to hook too. First thing was first, had to get a hitch on there for some good bumper mounting points. Went to the local junk yard and couldn't find a wj hitch, so I modified a zj hitch to work.


Then I need to move this charcoal canister thing. Ended up just raising everything up. Prolly not the cleanest way to do it, but for my jeep it'll serve its purpose just fine.












Bad picture, but I made the 'wings' on the bumper mount to the factory holes at the wheel well for added support.


Mounts from the hitch to the corner of the bumper.








Hopefully I'll have time to get it welded out, ground, and primed this week. Then time to start on the front.

**Yes, it's only made out of 1/8". It wont need anything thicker going to the grocery store and back.

Well, it isn't the prettiest thing in the world, but definitely looks like it will hold up.

I would recommend Powder coating, you can get the stuff that looks just like paint but it is way tougher. Even if it is just a grocery getter.

I'm going to color match everything, but i'm using bedliner. It's what I always do my bumpers with and they always come out looking great.
