Most people will want to spray bomb them so they are easy to touch up after you bash it into trees and rocks. On the other hand it is aluminum so polishing it would be pimp and somewhat easy to maintain.

Poser Jeep.

We don't powder coat because of the issues we had shipping. Frankly we suck at boxing stuff up and I'd hate to send a perfectly nice powder coated bumper to anybody only to get there all dinged up. Then it would have to come back. You get the picture.

Powder coating is done in every city. Get a couple of quotes and you'll be much more satisfied with the color you pick. Plus if there are any defects you can take it right back to your shop. As you say shouldn't cost too much.

Thanks,

Gerald

Because powdercoating a bumper that will see rocks, especially an aluminum one, is an exercise of futility.

Very true but a lot of people don't do they things we do.

A lot of our customers believe or not just like the looks of it. I'm all for that considering we build our stuff function over form. Most other bumper builders are form over function. I'm with you I would rather do a good prep and rattle can so I can touch it up. Even on the trail!

Do you see any issues with hacking off the crash bar underneath your bumper?

I'll be doing just that after I make the skid that attaches to it. A lot of the Rubicon owners need that space protected for their electronics sway bar disconnect and vacuum pump.

So, what I'm making is a skid that integrates tow bar and recovery attachment points. It will attach to the bottom of the bumper and the crash bar. Currie makes something very similar but it is too large to fit. So I have to make our own. It actually stiffens up the front end quite a bit.

Dimple dies don't do so well on 3/16" or 1/4"!

gerald, have you considered engineering your skid to allow better clearance with the upward rotation of the sway bar disconnect? since you're mounting the winch ontop of the frame rails (as it should be done) you'll have plenty of room under there to rotate the disconnect and solenoid assembly up. you could reduce the size of the crash bar for better approach angle and still retain the OEM product.

Run an AR and don't worry about the stock sway bar and sway bar links.
