I was just using regular boxes (forget the size.. like 18"x18"x24" or something). I opened them up and basically wrapped the bumper with two of them. It was a PITA and took about 15 minutes each to wrap them. I contacted a few custom box makers but was quoted some pretty steep prices with a "tooling setup" fee of about $500 just to get started..

What size tube do you use for the outside lip of the receiver tube? Also do you know anyone that makes the clevis plates prefabbed?

Yeah, custom boxes are not real cheap. We use 12X12X70 boxes and cut them in half to make them 6X12 and then trim to length a needed. It is not too bad.

BTW, if BERSK does not mind, we offer our machined 1X2" clevis mounts that have a 1" hole for $8.50 each, plus shipping. They are 4.5" long and made to go through a 2" piece of tube. They are not on our site, but if you e-mail me I can get a shipping quote.

Have a great day!!!

BESRK if you get back into selling bumpers, I found a place local that makes boxes. They are making me 8X8X60 boxes for $6 a each. Would be cheaper but I am only buying 4.

Really? Where is it. I've actually got some rectangle stock and might make a few over the Winter to pass the time... That would be the perfect size box. Can you shoot me the address? Thanks!

If you can buy 25 at a time U-line has that size for $2.38 each. Maybe you guys can share if you are local to each other? HTHs.

Sometimes, ya just gotta make time. I got off work, came home, changed clothes and did some welding in the garage (dark outside).

I might make a few bumpers after the holidays.. I'm currently working on a cage and front/rear 4 link coilover suspension on a buddy's YJ.. should be a bad*** rig. if you're still interested after Xmas, shoot me a PM then.

You change clothes first? That must be why my wife is always ticked off at me.
