My Home-made rear bumper

I'm finally getting around to posting these. I built this a couple of months ago. I will be adding a tire carrier to it in the future.

It started out as 4"x4" 1/4" wall square tube.

Sorry about the lousy cell phone pics, but they are all I have.

I will be powdercoating it after the carrier is added. For now it is rattle can paint just so it doesn't rust.

I just took some more pics, including my frame tie-in's, I made at the same time. Sorry it's dirty right now.

Thanks for the compliments, and you are right it is harder than it looks, but it's worth it. It turned out well.

Excellent work man! I start college this year and I'm really hoping my school offers some sort of shop type classes that I could take as electives to learn to weld and good stuff like that, I can only imagine the satisfaction of making that type of thing yourself is immense.

Nice job man! You went overkill on the mounts. I wsa going to make some of those that go on the side of the frame, my buddies talked me out of messing with it. What I have is strong, but yours is better, makes me want to take mine off and beef it up even more..

NICE WORK

Thank you. As for the mounts I wanted to make sure it was solidly attached to the frame, since I removed the reciever hitch I had on it before, and this will be used for towing and recovery. I would hate to have someone winching my Jeep out from the back, and end up with only the bumper pulled out of the mud.

The nice thing about this project was that it was all built out of scrap that I had laying around, with the exception of the clevis mounting tabs.
