I note they are designed similar to the MORE mounts, but I think I prefer yours.

Thanks! The MORE mounts were my inspiration. I just figured why buy something that i can probably make. Next on the list is a skid plate similar to what Throttle Down Kustoms makes for '82-'86 CJ's. I bought a 12 ton pipe bender a couple years ago, thats been severely neglected so far!

Well, that was a productive day in the garage. Got my Bombproof motor mounts done, and they fit like a charm. Moved on to the next project, which is a new skid plate. Got the majority of it welded up, and was able to test fit it. I think it will be alot more sturdy than the stock one!. More on that tomorrow. Time for a beer or 6.

Well, got my skid plate done today. Then went to bolt on the left side header only to realize my new motor mount is in the way now! Now i'll have to cut it up and see what I can salvage to make a new one.....

At least the skid plate turned out good!

It looks good but what was the reason for making a new tranny / tcase support? It looks like it hangs just as low (maybe lower) as the stock skid plate.

Hassel... what kind of bender do you have? Maybe you mentioned it and I forgot?? Bends look good.

My old skid plate was all cut up and drilled full of holes from past PO's. I saw the one that Throttle Down Kustom's makes, and decided I could build something similar to that, and would definitely be an upgrade over stock. It hangs down the same amount as the stock plate, so I didn't lose any ground clearance.

Thanks. I got the cheap one from Harbor Freight. The bottle jack in it did not come with jack oil in it, so I put some in, and it still didn't work. And since the store was a 2 hour drive from my house, instead of returning it, I just replaced the jack with my own 12 ton bottle jack. Works good now.

You've GOT to be kidding me! I tried and tried to use one of those on our cage build, and I couldn't make it bend squat! Always kinking the tube. I even tried packing it with sand, and I still couldn't make that bender bend 1 1/2" tubing. You have done well with it.

What kind of tube were you using? I just use black iron pipe from Lowe's. Everything Ive made so far was out of 1 inch pipe, which bends pretty easy. It does tend to put small dimples in the pipe where it contacts the rollers, but I can live with that. I did try to bend a piece of 2 inch once, but i stopped at about 5 degrees cause I thought it was going to blow! Here's a pic of the first project I used it on, my front bumper. Getting two angles exactly the same on the same piece of pipe is an accomplishment on its own!

And this is the Jeep that I spent over 2 years building, and then only 2 days tearing back down to use for parts on my new build! Makes me sad

That explains it... black iron pipe. That bender is a pipe bender and not a tubing bender. They are different animals. It doesn't bend tubing, but I never tried it with pipe. I think I'll give it a whirl! Your front bumper looks really good.

Thanks! I cut it off from the 2x4 bumper when I got rid of the frame. I hope to get a new bumper, and weld the pipe part back on.
