It was made by Vic at VORFAB in Mountain Home Idaho, a small one man shop who does excellent above average work. The wiring is for my 3rd brake light (as seen below), and my old tire carrier was used for the mount for the tire. Thanks to all for the comments, to see more of the bumper you can see it here. ---> http://s41.photobucket.com/albums/e282/Tufftoy/

I originally posted in response to what Keelentime posted above. I never said that I made the bumper, I did however say that Vic from VORFAB in Mountain Home Idaho made the bumper. He custom made the bumper, sent it out for powerder coating, with a total cost being $400. I assisted him in mounting the bumper to my jeep, I did all the wiring for the 3rd brake light myself (I guess I should have posted that in "What I did to my TJ today), but I didn't. Again thanks for the positive responses to the bumper, I was just trying to give some pictures other than what is commercially sold.

Thanks, i'm gonna do that. The Passenger side still moves a lil.

Nothing special but I made adapter brackets instead of buying them for the dash speakers... I cut them out of 1/4" Lexan I had laying around... I will try to get a couple pics up later..
