I decided that I could make the same thing with some 2 piece shaft collars from work, and weld on a bolt. This is how I mounted my high lift to my Olimpic A/T rear tube bumper.

Here is the front bumper I made last weekend when I was playing around in the shop. The pics are of it spot welded together. I have it all welded and smoothed up now, and I might add a steering box skid before I paint it, but we'll see. I have a thread in the Fabrication section here...http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...96#post3947796

Here's what I have done so far:

Front Bumper, which may not be as facy as some of the one on here, it is nice for my application, also, did it in the short amount of time I had. I do plan on adding clevis tabs with d-rings, instead of the original hooks. Maybe a which someday.



My hood mount light bar. Which will also be were I mount a Hi-Lift once I get one.




My rocker skids, which as I stated in another thread I am still working on. They are now also a t-case drop, however, I am currently working on a 1"BL and MML lift with a flat skid:




CB mount:


Next to come:
Rear bumper- probably something simple with diamond plate, will have clevis tabs and a receiver.

BL/MML/Flat Skid- as stated above.

Control Arms- heim joints on axle ends, except for the front uppers.

Engine/ steering box/ gas tank skid.

home made snorkle, and air system.

I also made a "for jeeps only" parking spot in my drive way at home:




Great thread I hope to see more, there's some great work on here.

Semper Jeep.

Here are a couple thing I made a while ago.

Used my useless ashtray for an inverter.






I made these for $7. I got tired of my Zip ties snaping. And this way I don't have to worry about losing a pin.



I also made a CB antenna mount, I will have to find those pics.

Made a door hanger

I made a door hanger...

Bolted a nice 4x4 up to the garage wall with large lag bolts. It was actually a deck post that had some shape and carving to it, so it looks nice.

I screwed some huge eye bolts into it at the exact same spacing as the factory door hinges, and the doors slip in and hang there just great!
Also put some rubber coating on the eye hooks (the PlastiDip stuff in a can)
(The 4x4 provides some clearance from the garage wall so the mirrors or handles don't hit)

You can even tweak the angle of the eye hooks so the doors tend to swing back towards the wall.

I'd love to know exactly what parts you used, where to get them and how you put it all together! That looks awesome and side-markers are severely lacking on Wranglers (I've realized that if someone is in your blind spot, they are also blind to the front fender side-marker).
