Nates 4x4 bumper

OK, so we got the bumper done today.Body lift might be Monday if I have time. The garage is supposed to be getting wired up for the new welder which will get sliders going for this project build.Mind you this is my buddies but he is letting me build it for him as I have the skills, tools and know what it takes to make it through the PNW.

Any hoot, it's a Nates 4x4 bumer and was $360 plus shipping. Pretty nice bumper for the cabbage and is set for a winch when he wants. We used self etching primer, Duplicolor bed liner and semi-flat paint. Old bumper came off easily and this was a direct fit.
ready to go:

I'm pretty impressed and for the money it will serve well. Slowly getting this thing ready for a good wheeling session this fall. More to follow on this build.

I like it, but I would have mounted the plate lower, right between the fog lights.

Eventually that will happen. Right not it is just attached to the fairlead mount since there is no winch. Nate also doesn't put holes there so they will heve to be drilled. Oh and the bolts are going to be painted too so there is no bling.

Not sure what kind of winch. Warn would be my first choice but i'm not the one footing the bill. I have a MM and have been very happy.

can you do me a favor and bury the jeep in about 30" of mud, then pull it out with the clevis mounts? i like the bumper, but those recovery points look a bit close to the ends...

I'm sure I could but it's not my Jeep. They are full weld though on 3/16" plate and trussed. It's pretty stout.

My buddy didn't get the hardware kit for $25. Went to Home Depot and bought all needed bolts for $14 instead. They were 1/2" dia x 4" though we could have easily gone with 3.5" instead.

Sweet bumper. Not a bad price either. I agree with you regarding painting the bolts. I also agree about the plate, but may look better up there for now until you get the winch perhaps??? The winch plate may look funnier without the winch installed.

I hate that Texas forces us to install front plates. DPS loves to pull us over for that one too. A quick $80 for them.

The Jeep is sitting on a Full Traction 2" BB (getting a 1"BL later this week if I get to it) and 305s (33s). It sits Higher then my TJ on 33s right now and only droped the fron end less then 1/2". It's a pretty stout piece. I will start building rockers for it later this month.

instead of drilling holes why not just weld two nuts to attach the plate. You could red locktite them and not have to worry about it.
