Front bumper build

First off, I'm not a welder. Decided I'd like custom front bumper, though, and I have a few welding things, so decided I'd give it a try. Just gonna put in a couple of pics. BTW, it's 3" x 6" x 1/4" rect. tubing.

I think you did a good job! I like how it comes out to protect the tire. However, it reminds me of a Longhorn steer!

I like it! I like that picture too... with the light fading around the outer perimeter, it draws focus to the bumper. Nice CJ BTW!

Thanks! My fenders are what I was concerned about. seen so many CJ's that got their fenders bent when our factory bumpers missed the tree, but the fender didn't. Longhorn huh? Hadn't thought of that!

Yep, was putting the winch back on yesterday and thought "Murph, you shoulda cleaned this up". I used to have some aluminum cleaner I bought for my boat. Worked good, just wipe it on, leave it a bit, and wash it off. Shoulda got some more!

Not sure, bought it like that. I know it's not original, was brown. It is a pretty color, lots of metal flake.

Great job! I like the longhorn look myself. I was wondering the same thing as Eddie about your picture, which looks great even if it wasn't on purpose.

Thanks for posting the thread on rebuilding the Warn winch. I had a guy give me one and it needs rebuilding. I'm sure there will be lots of helpful info there.
