Wow Eddie, that's crazy!

Could've been a lot worse, but I'm sure that is still uncomfortable!

Damn, sorry to see that. Gotta have the eyes covered. But that was bad luck Hope you heal up quickly.

Had an employee press a knuckle bearing the wrong way and it exploded into his eye/ wasn't wearing goggle or shield we give them. Pretty much blind in that eye now.

Thanks for the well wishes!


I feel stupid because I knew better. I heard the die grinder running but just wanted to take a quick peek to see what he was grinding on.

What's bad, is that I ride my son all day about "ears and eyes", "using legs for lifting", wearing gloves, wearing his leathers..etc. Now, I'll never hear the end of it..

Sorry bout your eye, hope your better by now!

I've been reading this thread and love your bumper / tire carrier. I was wondering what your getting for one these days?
I have been building a CJ7 for about 5 years and i'm in the home stretch and i was researching bumpers and you seem to put out
a great product!!


This is my first post in any kind of forum, and I gotta tell ya, its pretty awesome that you put it all out there for people to give a shot
at building there own bumpers. You are a rare individual and I give you

Eddie, Eddie, Eddie... . You need both eyes, don't consider one a spare .

Welcome fro!

I need to comment on my GPF front/rear bumpers I installed December 2010. I have beat the snot out of them with hard, hard wheeling in Moab, several Jamborees, two Chili Challenges, bouncing and bashing at Clayton, OK and they are still 100% functional. The swing-away tire carrier still operates as smooth as silk. Here's my write-up of the install.

Yeah, I was bit by the Jeep bug five years ago when i went hunting with a friend in his CJ5 and went out and bought a CJ7. My CJ started out with a "safety check" when I got it home and off the trailer, and five years later i have ground up build that has ended up replacing over 90% of the jeep I started with. My wife never even got a ride in it and she reminds me of it every now and again. Love this site and you guys all seem very helpful.

Any idea who makes it? When it comes to custom creations like that (nice bumper BTW), it's usually quite a bit cheaper to try to get it from someone who is already building them. They've already worked out the bugs and have some (if not all) of the parts already pre-made to incease production time and reduce cost. When someone has to crank out a "one-off" based off of a photograph, it's all about time.. and time = $$$.

I'd be kind of curious to see how they did the mounting setup.

Have you tried posting that pic in the CJ Forum to see if any of the guys/gals know who made it?

Yes I did. Here is the thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/do...umper-1379144/.

But when I see this picture: I just simply like it.

I am building my tire carrier, and was wondering when you weld the spindle in the bumper and grind it flat, do you put the spindle flush at the bottom or only half way in the 3/16 of the bumper?

I'm sure Eddie can answer better, but I literally set it as I went. Your spindle may be different. I suggest you tack in your horizontal bottom piece to the "hub" where you'll want it, then put the hub on the spindle. Drop the spindle in to have the desired height (spacing and level) and tack it in. Test and verify... Then burn it in.

My spindle is 5'' long so I will have to cut it before welding it, but as you said I will tack the A-frame to the tube before to see height adjustement before cutting the spindle
