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.
Thats a nice looking bumper. About how heavy is it?

You either got lucky or he has gotten his stuff together. I got his swing out tire carrier bumper and waited nearly 3 months for it. Had to threaten him with ebay and paypal to get it. Also had to drill out holes for it to fit right and sand all the weld spatter off of it. Then he promised me something for waiting so long to get it and never got the stuff he promised.
2006 Silver Rubicon, 4.5" 4wd hardware lift, 1.25" JKS body lift, currier 1" mm lift, currier anit rock sway bar, 35" Goodyear MTR/s, mile marker 8000 winch.
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.
That looks really good. Those are the stock bumper lights just relocated? I have been thinking about a new bumper but was going to put it off. Last night a tree ran right out in front of me while off-roading and I smashed the front right corner on my stock bumper.
If I could find a good deal on someones discarded stock bumper, I would take it also; but so far I have not seen a price worth considering. If you have one to sell- please let me know
