And just as a side note..... If you get 6" flares (i have the bw pocket flares) they will be flush with the end of that bumper

Too long for the tj. Need to lop the ends off. Then you reuse the ends to make caps.

Mine fits perfect with the flares.

First day out with the new bumper. Just want to see confused looks on people's faces.

Could you send me a larger photo of yours on the red jeep? Hard to see the small photo.

You used the jk hooks. Are they solidly mounted to the chassis or just decoration?

I like the look of the snaggle tooth and wanted them to be able to be used. My hooks straddle the chassis ends on 1/4" welded steel bolted to the frame. ticker than the bracket where it was bolted to on the jk.

Those are about the best pics I have. I did use the JK hooks. I did mine a little different than you did as I retained the stock TJ bumper under the JK bumper. I have used the hooks twice so far and have not had any issues.

I was going to do that too like the first guy. The tj bumper is just too thin to do any kind of good yankin'
That's why I made heavy steel ones. Real pain to cut and drill that thick steel. Welds reals easy though.

I had to make a filler panel between the grille and bumper to keep out leaves and cheese.

I built the bumper forward like that so I can change the fog light bulbs so I don't have to unbolt and remove the bumper.
