Love your rear bumper.

Start a business. I'll buy one.

I'm sure we can work something out.

Are there frame tie in brackets on the rear bumper? I have an old TJ and didn't have frame tie ins. I do now.
That steel plate IS the bumper. It's the first piece, I got it where I wanted it and welded the studs on. Then the D-ring mounts are welded directly in the center of those... so it's like a large bolt on recovery point.

I got this done tonight...

Maybe. I might do a rack over the tire first. Still haven't decided how I want to do the rack with the jack mounted the way it is. I might make a jack mount under the rack.

I might hold off and do tube fenders next. That way I can do big tires w/o doing more lift. I can't decide if I want steel tube fenders or carbon fiber fenders... if I do carbon it will be painted like the bumpers. I like the idea of a fenders that will break before bending the Jeep's sheet metal like the tube fenders might.

You can buy them from a couple places online. I was picking up some clevis mounts at a local 4X4 shop and grabbed mine. 60 bucks. Pic from page 1...
