    ZJ gets a bumper

    this is my buddy's 93 ZJ and his handy work, but I thought I'd show it off and see what everyone thought. any criticisms welcome

    also, we're thinking about building a couple bumpers and selling them if anyone is interested. we can modify this type of bumper however you like and we'll work out a price. We also have access to a laser cutter so we can cut out bottom grills etc

    looks good but the stock bumper allows more airflow to the bottom of the rad below the licence plate. tow hooks?still like it!!

    Ya it's gonna have tow hooks built in once he gets time to finish it. I'm trying to convince him to cut a grill into the bottom end of the bumper like the WJs have

    not bad...

    all that work tho and no room for a winch? If I was puttin in that much effort I'd at least leave enough room in there for the future.

    personally i'd slope it towards the truck a little on either side of the license plate/winch area.
