    raw material for bumpers

    well here is the material I have for my bumpers I think I have enough to do at least 3 good heavy bumpers. now I just need some ideas of what to do with it.

    Wish I has a set of torches and hoses for my oxygen / acetylene tanks but I don't oh well. So ideas on what to build for bumpers out of this stuff.

    1. Measure twice cut once
    2. Weld strong recovery points and hitch receiver
    3. Attach to frame
    4. Check all measurements again and have a beer
    5. Remove the vehicle from the bumper and attach to YJ
    93 YJ - Stock 2.5L inline 4, 4" Rough Country Lift, 1.5" Shackles, 33" BFG's, SYE yet to be installed, Raptor Liner Sprayed, CB, Stereo that goes BooM, Aussie locker front, XJ solid shafts, tube fenders by Tubular Metalworx, 8500lb winch, Garvin swing away tire carrier and clearly far too much time on my hands. No roof, no doors and two screaming kids in the back.

    You want to build a bumper from scrap 2x4 for a zj? I don't think I've ever seen a square tube bumper look good on a zj. Doesn't work with the line. Heck I don't even like round tube pre-runner styles on them.
    Good luck.
    90 YJ. 4link F/R, 16" SAW Airshocks, 32bolt Beadlocks, D60/14bolt, Full Hydro/Hydroboost L67 3.8SC 700r4 NP231/D300
    02 Yukon XL on 37's DD
    91 Cherokee Juggy scrapped for Greener Grass
    I prefer to build it and not buy it, you see it, I probably made it.

    They look like high level lighting Cross-arms.

    Can't wait to see them! Don't let other Jeep problems (square them away first) ruin your fabbing experience......take your time and enjoy the build as much as the finished products!

    ya well the reason I am having so many problems right now is because my jeep was stolen and taken for a joy ride through a corn field and that is why the bumpers were going to be done because of damage but just had to change a front wheel bearing a couple few days ago so while I was at it I swapped the axle shafts out of my donor jeep that I was thinking about putting on the road while I did the bearing seeing as the donor had the new u joints on the front axle. after that all the noise in the front end was gone and it handles a lot better.

    but now the front is better I could hear that I have a issue with the rear axle, sounds like the bearings there too. So I decided seeing as the donor had a good rear axle why not just swap them and fix up the bad one for a spare when I have the time and money.

    what I need is a couple friends to come and help me pull the rest of the stuff off the donor so I can cut up and scrap the body ( going to be keeping some sections of the body for helping fab the bumpers )

    I hope tomorrow is warm enough to get the axle out of my dd so I can get the donor axle in.

    post up some bumperless pics of the front and rear to give us something to plan around....make sure the shot is in tight enough to show the "frame" mounts. there are some fairly simple ideas online made by other companies....lets shamelessly rip them off!

    Square stock...not much you can do with it.

    Try making a swing out tire carrier for a YJ. Those things go for big bucks.

    well I can run without the front bumper so no hurry and as for the rear bumper I have to get the smashed up one off first but trying to figure out how to get the bolts out for the bumper as they are inside the frame which give no room for a wrench or ratchet I think the studs for the hitch have to be removed to replace the bumper and use the same mounting spots

    hey if life handed me lemons I would make pie but all I seem to get is crap LOL and the only thing you cam make with crap is more crap LOL
