That definitly does look like some high quality work there. How much does it cost you when its all said and done? And do you powder coat your bumpers. I'm not looking to buy one, I'm just curious.

im not sure if you are refering to mine or not, but my tire carrier probably set me back about $80-90 total

I sand blasted then primed and Painted mine with Rustoleum Hammered black

The xj bumper probably has about $250-300 in it and it was done the same way then painted hammered grey

I can see the pics on the first page after that just little red x's. I'd like to see the finished product, what I've seen so far looks nice.

I too wouldn't mind seeing all your pics. I sat here at work and read every word and drooled at what I read and saw. Awesome stuff.

Great of you to take the additional time to post what and how you're doing your fabwork on top of doing the work itself.

Little x's for me also after the first page or so.............

I'm going home right now to practice with the MIG on my every growing junk metal pile in the driveway. Consider me inspired..........................

It ought to be a t-shirt, sticker or something.............

"Inspired by Besrk"

Great stuff man.

Thanks for the kind words.. I went thru and reattached all the pics. I think I added an extra one or two somewhere but they all seem to fit the storyline
Update on the wife's bumper.. it's still there. Looks the same as it did the day I installed it. If I were starting all over again, I would attach the latch to pull hard forward and down to lock the swingarm into the angle iron stop but I haven't had a problem with it in the last year that I've driven the Jeep. I don't wheel that Jeep and have only put a few thousand miles on it but so far so good.. Haven't really started making bumpers again. I just can't find the time. I've been doing more big fabrication with my rear 4 link suspension on Big Lime and my buddy's front and rear 4 link that I'm about to start. Plus, I took a few weekends to get some wheelin trips in. I'll tell ya though... the weekends that I'm at home, my door bell rings non stop with welding projects. I've also upgraded to a Millermatic 210 and picked up a couple of bottles of C25 gas so I'm no longer chippin' slag Oh... and I got a Model 3 bender. Now I just need the air over hydraulic setup for it so I don't have to break a sweat bending tube

Thanks!! It was fun doing the writeup. I've done a couple other ones but none were so popular. It's neat to log on and see the view count approaching the 10,000 mark... woohoo!

Where did you get your shipping boxes and how much were they? I just built a front and rear bumper for my jeep and built a few extra while I was at it. Looking to sell them on E-bay but need boxes.

I am in Va Beach, was it a local place?

We use U-line for boxes and have had great service. I got really lucky when we just moved and now have a U-line distribution center that I can drive to because shipping on the boxes was expensive. (I am now thinking that the fuel to get to the distribution center may be more than shipping them...)

Also, if you do not paint or powdercoat items you can just slap a UPS shipping label on it and have it shipped unboxed.

I looked there for boxes but the only thing I saw in the 58" range was a bike box. Can you special order from them?
