FREE TJ stubby bumper in Fort Collins!

My buddy recently bought a plasma table, and I had some drawings for a TJ stubby bumper and he cut them out for me, but I need to verify they will work on a TJ, then we can start producing them.

I need someone to come out to the shop and bring the TJ, without a front bumper, so we can test fit.

Here's how this would go, you bring out the Jeep, we test fit, tack it all together, you leave, and within a week or so we will have it ready to put onto your jeep. We will need some time to create a fixture to jig up future bumpers, and we will have to hold on to the bumper while we do that.

This bumper is 3/16 steel, CNC cut, bent, and will be MIG welded. Has a winch fair lead mount, no pull points, but will allow for factory tow hooks on top of the bumper.


Let's aim for the next sunny warm weekend.

You should make a JK version as well. I will gladly donate that. I even help with the build, and bring some beer

Two questions: 1) Will the bumper have a built in winch mount? 2) What weight are you shooting for/or trying not to exceed?

I may be interested and available almost anytime since I am in the FC area (that sounded bad)... :lol:

Let me know.

Looks like this was solved, but if you make a rear bumper/tire carrier my rear bumper is already off.
