When i bought the jeep it came with smitty built bumpers front and back. I built myself a back bumper that was more beefy then the smitty built and was putting off building a new front bumper tell I had more money. Well the smitty built bumper on the front fell off while wheeling one day so I decited to beef it up a little and change the design alittle. and it ended up accually becoming a real bumper. this is a pic if where the bumper used to be mounted at
it was held on by 4 peices of 1 and 1/2 in by 1/8 inch flat strap. its pretty weak. I accually bent the bumper buy standing on the front of it well this is what i did to it to beef it up.
notic home much more high up the bumper is mounted.
its accually strong now.
