    Yes, Really nice work.
    I may be in the market soon.
    What kind of price are you asking for both front and rear?

    Fair enough, figured it was a long shot but couldn't hurt to ask. I'm a Catia/SolidEdge guy myself.

    Let me know if you ever list a price, that bumper is beautiful! I'd be tempted to build one myself except I don't have any metal working tools, and my welds won't look anywhere near as pretty.

    Edit: I'd also like to see a bushing build-up.

    curiosity question... the tabs on the front and rear bumpers...

    Maybe I missed it but do they go through the bumper welded on both sides?

    Mine are not but I think they would be much stronger if they were....

    But I must say... I love the reciever for the Licence as well as the reciever on the front bumper. I have one as well and I'll tell ya you get strange looks when you are hooked to a trailer that way.

    BTW... Very Nice bumpers.

    the tabs are welded through. Thank you for the complements. I will get some pics of the bushing build as soon as I get some time. work has been nuts so I have not been making to much lately.

DAMB! great job! still triing to figure out my rear swing arm. want the gas can and the 60" jack to fit too. but they need to be locked down. any suggestions?

    Man those two bumpers must weigh in at 200lbs. Isn't that a bit overkill? The weight alone would drop your ride by a 1/4". I would think that you would want a bumper that will absorb some of the knocks. With what you have built, the frame will absorb the impact directly. A bent frame is the $hits. I can understand a strong pull point, but I would have gone with a lighter steel for the bumper. I'd rather fix a bumper than a frame. Just my two cents.

    You guessed it :-) I'm new to Jeeps but not steel. Does that mean you disagree?? I have been dreaming up a similar bumper for my Cherokee. I have also been thinking of going with a roof mount for my tire. Can't decide, but it doesn't matter for now as I don't have the $$.

    Did you look at the date of this thread?

    As for your comments, I agree it's easier to fix a bumper than a frame... but most of the guys who put this bumper on have reinforced frames too.

    Yikes it is an old thread. Someone else revived it and I didn't look further back. Nuff said.

    It's easier to break yer frame then have a bumper or a tow point fail and injure or kill somebody, nuff said.
    Strength is nothing more than how well you hide the pain

    Yer hot, wet, and extremely satisfying. You always put a smile on my face and yer the first thing i want in my mouth when i wake up....aaaaaahhhhhh Coffee, my only friend.
