    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.

    Make sure you keep the weight down! It'd suck having to get it home like this the next time I launch it.
