My front. 1/4" wall steel, grade 8 bolts, bolt holes thru bumper are sleved. I welded 1/4" angle bracklets that i made to the frame to add ridgidity. I don't like relying on the capured frame nuts too much.






Rear, is 1/4" wall as well. both front and rear d ring mounts are welded front and rear thru the bumpers as well. Custom mounting that bolts thru the top and bottom of the upgraded rear frame as well.

Best mounted pic that I have.... LOL. I built them myself and have fully tested both of them with hard hits and some tough recovery's. They never flinched.

Built this one 4 yrs ago!


Built this one about 3 years ago


Built the back bumper for the TJ


Then built a swing-out for the spare. Also replaced front and rear differentials with Detroit tru-tracs after reading Jerry Bransford's recommendations! Glad I did it!

Kelvinkally I realy like your bumper it is one of the best I have seen home made or otherwise. I would like to build one for simaler for my yj. I know you dont want to have any one to have a identical bumper. Thats why Im not buying one. but if you could give a few pointers on how you came up with the desing and what size plate you used it would be helpful.

Hey, you're right, the reason we all build our own stuff is to make them "our own", If you want one that looks just like someone elses, you might as well just buy a production bumper, that being said, I just looked at differant bumpers that I liked certain things about and took those points and combinded them to come up with what you see. I don't use drawings or anything like that, I just start out with an idea in my head and see where it takes me. I used 1/4 in plate for the bumper, 1/2 in plate for the mounting brackets with the 1 in plate to build the pull eyes which are welded to the mounting bracket that bolts up to the frames factory bumper mounting holes. As for getting the two sides to match, I built one side by tacking it together and getting it to look like I wanted. Then I cut the tacks and used those pieces as patterns for the other side so they would be a perfect match, then welded it all together and ground it smooth. I hope this helps you out and good luck.
