Hi, I think Eddie (BERSK) retired and sold his shop a few years ago. Miss him, He did great work and was really helpful.

Throw it out here and see if someone else might know if he is still building or if someone else can help.

Cheers!

WSS, you are correct he is no longer in business. I had one of Eddie's (Ground Pounder Fab) rear bumpers on my YJ named "Turd" (see avatar). They were an awesome bumper at a great price! I had the pleasure of meeting him on a few trailrides once in a while years ago. Super nice dude.

Be well,

Looks like Photoshop killed another good thread. Without paying the big money they're wanting, plus the hassle of updating everything, many of these great build threads are almost useless.

Eddie kept this fab section of the forum very active when he was around. Maybe less people are building their own stuff now too. Not sure though.

I always liked his simple and functional approach to these bumpers and other things. There's allot of work, trial and error and research into getting bolt on parts to fit right too and until you've figured it all out from scratch it's easy to take that for granted. Trust me I know!

My version. I switched to a bear claw style latch to hold the swing out in place.

Built my bumper off this thread a dogs age ago and it is still doing great and survived a rear-ending from a Honda Odyssey which didn't fare quite as well. That said I need new bearings as I think the bottom one has failed. Anyone got the measurements or an equivalent since the link for the spindle bearing doesn't work any more?


EDIT: I think I found an updated link

^^^ beautifully made.

Eddie stopping making these bumpers was a loss for the whole jeep community.

I talked to him a few times he is/was a gem of a human. Hope he's doing well where every he is.

Darn. I was hoping I could order some bumpers for my newly acquired LJ Rubicon. He did such a nice job on my CJ. Eddie is a great craftsman!
