procomp bumper made into a STUBBY

ever since i built my tube fenders i have wanted a stubby bumper. i could build one using some 2x4" steel that i have in my garage, but then i would be just like everyone else

i really like the procomp bumper i have now. its 3/16" and has a nice slope to it that makes it just slide right over rocks. ive been running it for a couple yrs, plus its only $100.

so i decided i would just section some out of mine. all welded up it looks just like the GENRIGHT bumper that retails for $400




so heres what im starting with (no you dont have to take your tires off, im currently building a steering system so thats why mine are off.)


then i tok the bumper off



then i marked where i was going to cut. looks like i'll be taking out 6" on each side. THATS 12" TOTAL!!!!


i put it in the chop saw and cut the end piece off at my mark.


heres the end piece


i then did the same thing to the the side.

heres both end pieces together


then the bumper with no end pieces


next i cut 6" in on each side at my previously marked lines. i didnt get any pics of this.

here you can see how everything was cut


and a close up

and now you take out those pieces and it looks like this


next i whippd out my trusty HH140. man i love this thing


started tacking it in place



then i burned it in. i welded both inside and out.


once it was all welded up i marveled in its beauty for about 10 secs. then i whipped out the good ol flapper disk to make it look sexy.




one more



now it was time to paint.

hanging in my backyard


starting to look good


after 3 coats i decided it was time to mount this new short bad boy up.



and heres the final product. i think it looks pretty FRICKIN' sweet




took only a couple hrs and was one of the easiest mods ive ever done. looks awesome and it was free

That bumper looks suspiciously similar to the Smittybilt SRC I put on a couple of weeks ago, which is entirely too long. I've been considering cutting about a foot out of it and adding more spots for lights. Think I'll do that when both the Jeep and chop saw get here.
