I use the same basic bumper for CJs, YJs and TJs. The only thing I change is the mounting plate bolt pattern (YJ and TJ are the same).

Eddie, have you ever thought about threading the mounting plates like you did for the shipping bolt? I don't know if that would be a PITA, but it would force you to have to bolt from the rear side of the crossmember... not sure if many would like that.... Then again, you do still need access to that backside to bolt it in anyways... Just some random thoughts I have had.

I have considered it. I know there are a few bumper manufacturers out there that do it (I think Zach does).

Couple reasons I don't..

I now cut my mounting plate holes on my plasma table so they're slotted 1" for some adjustability left/right. If I drill/tap the plates, the only adjustability would be from the small slots in the rear crossmember itself.

Also, I'm pretty much a "one-man-band" (although my son now helps me a few days a week). To drill/tap eight 1/2" holes for each bumper would add on a considerable amount of time.. time=$$ so price would go up. I could outsource drilled/tapped blocks from a CNC machine shop but again... more overhead=$$.

I think using bolts thru a mounting plate also make it a little easier to install the bumper. You can get an outer bolt thru each mounting plate, lift the bumper into position and rely on those 2 bolts to help hold the bumper up while you install the rest of the bolts.

I just want to say that there is alot of really good fabricators here on jeep forums. I am not the greatest fab'er so this took me a long time to finish this. I want to thank all of the input that gave me the ideas for my bumper







Now I have the whole bumper finished and painted with two clevis mounts and 3/4" d-rings. I finished it a while ago just havn't got around to posting the pictures. Sorry for the poor quality, cell phone pics. I'll post finished pics this weekend

Carrier locking pin

Eddie, your work is beautiful. I have a suggestion to reduce the wear on the paint where the locking pin to hold the carrier open rubs on the steel surface before it drops into the locking hole. They make thin nylon material with adhesive on one side that could be mounted where the pin rubs. It would protect the paint. It can be cut with sissors.

I've thought about that.. you can get that stuff from McMaster Carr. However, the pin can be lifted, turned and locked in the "up" position so it doesn't drag at all. On my own personal bumper, I just let it drag/rust and shoot it with Rustoleum a couple times a year... mainly when I'm painting "rock rash" at the same time.



... and thank you for the kind words!

Hey Eddie thanks for the paint tips. Now that Im done fabbing my rear bumper, wondering if you have any pics or ideas for a front bumper with a winch. I just got a new winch and based on your rear bumper design am going to build a front bumper with winch mount. Im going simple with D rings and a small winch gaurd, and going to shape the same as the rear just shorter. Not trying to be a PITA but your ideas are great and just looking for best templates to go on. Thanks again. PS anyone else who has great ideas please jump in...
