I saw those other pics you posted of just the rear bumper without the tire carrier. Looks really good.. what did you coat it with?

Hey thanks! It turned out better than I thought it would. Just some self etch primer and three coats duplicolor truck bed liner from a rattle can. I've been thinking of topcoating it with some POR15. If I recall, I thought that's what you said you used to coat yours. If you use it, how well does up hold up to abuse and UV? My jeep won't fit in my garage and I don't want a gray bumper with the rest of the trim black! Thanks again, great thread!

POR 15 likes "bare steel".. it doesn't adhere well to paint. Probably wouldn't adhere very well at all to the bed liner since that coating is kind of "rubbery".

If you shoot/brush on a couple coats of POR 15 and then follow that with a couple coats of the POR 15 Chassis Black, it'll last for years. Really durable paint.


Thanks irnman! Made in the USA and proud of it!

A few pics of my BESRK inspired bumper! I have a question/problem,(94YJ) I incorperated lower frame tie in tabs. I have a 4.5 RE ED lift, I am having a problem with my shackles hitting the lower tabs I fabbed up using AtoZ's tabs.
I have RE shackles but haven't gotten around to putting them on, still using the stockers. Has anyone had a problem with this? I think its because the RE springs are a bit longer than most springs. Surely longer than stock springs.

Nice!

Can you post pics of the shackle interference?

The tire swings in the pics below (both by BESRK and from earlier in the thread) look to be of a bit different design. Is that correct and which is the current design being sold?

I now use the 2"x3" rectangular tubing (white Jeep) for the main swing arm. It's stronger and I think it looks better. I switched to the 2x3 about a year ago or so.

Jeez Eddie, how much stronger does it need to be over what I have on the yellow TJ? You've seen me beat the snot out of it, I've laid it on the spare and backed into umpteen trees. Still keeps on ticking.

Thanks for the quick reply. I think the newer design looks better as well.

Alright just a quik question, I am going to make bumper for a buddy kind of like mine. My question is, what do you guys think of this type of latch for a tire carrier? I just worry about it ratteling loose.

http://www.atozfabrication.com/catal...mbly-p-37.html

And Besrk, I know you go with 1/4" for almost everything on yours, how do you feel about 1/8" wall for a tire carrier, carrying a 33" tire?

I think if Zach uses that latch, it won't rattle loose. With "T" nuts, I like to run them up tight and then hit them with a wrench or small hammer to cinch them down anyway.

Actually, I don't use 1/4" wall anymore. I use 3/16" for the bumper and 1/8" wall for the "A" frame. That helps keep weight down and is plenty strong.

If it were for a mild rig that wasn't gonna get banged around, 1/8" wall for the whole thing would probably suffice. My very first pair of bumpers were made from 2"x4"x1/8" wall tubing and I don't think I ever put one dent in either of them. We even put a short stinger on the front bumper and used the winch like a crane to pickup/move engines and axles around in my backyard...
