If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

Very Nice!
How much to make another one?
I've been looking for something like this for months now, can't find one anywhere.

It may be there and I am just not seeing It but it would be nice to have a little more lower radiator protection like some tube with a small skid or something of that nature.
Seen some really good front bumper lately on here would love to see someone put one in production that was small like these are and affordable love to see the 500$ or lower mark be hit with a decent sturdy bumper doesn't have to be all fancy just get the job done.
there really no affordable bumpers for the WJ I am telling you some comes up with a good one there is tons of cash to be made keep it below 500$ it can be minimal just cover what needs to be and people would jump all over these.

Awesome bumper. Looks really clean, nice and sleek. Would definitely buy if you had a nice price tag, but I agree with losttech. Some lower radiator protection would be nice, maybe a piece of metal wrapping down the bottom?

What would you be looking for as far as completeness goes? If I didn't have to paint it that would drop the price quite a bit

I think most would take it unpainted there is always a place that does powdercoating or something around.
