JCR Bumper, EVAP Skid & Homemade Mirror Mount

It's taken me several weekends to get here, but I finally got my new bumper installed. Now I'm ready to run over a Prius.

Bumper primed and sealed:

I found it cool that the underside of my Jeep is painted green like the original Willys. Are all JK's this way?

Never seen any Titanium home made parts that's badass.

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.

Thanks. My neighbor is a professional welder and has access to the materials. He gives me a hard time for painting them. He says I should polish the Titanium, but you know... Jeeps and chrome just don't mix. I'm tempted to start manufacturing the mirror brackets. I could offer them up painted or polished and with square, round, and oval mirrors. I see relocation brackets on eBay selling for over $50 a piece. My bracket is simple and effective and would not cost much to produce.

I read your thread yesterday and saw you mention Titanium but didn’t really believe that was actually the material you used. As far as I know titanium is very expensive and wouldn’t justify the cost especially if you plan to manufacture them. The parts came out nice though plus I love to see homemade stuff, good job.
