Need quick help about mounting a bumper.

Hi all. I have a 99 sport. I have an opportunity to buy a JK wilderness bumper like pictures.

My question is, will this fit my TJ? If so, will it be a total pain to mod? Please offer any help you can. Guy wants me to buy it by late afternoon if I can. Thanks!!

mounting points are different...but you can make anything fit with enough welding, cutting, grinding and fabrication.

Thank you. I realize this. I'm am asking how hard it will be. I don't want to buy the bumper and then spend a ton having someone do that. I don't have the tools or means to do it myself.

Do you mind going into a little more detail? Thank you

The additional detail you're asking for is this. It's likely that all the dimensions and mounting points are going to be at the very least, a little bit off. It sounds like you are going to have to pay someone to cut, grind, weld, and fabricate the entire thing. Unless he's giving it to you for free, I'd probably pass.

Thanks Miller

Didn't know of there was an adaptor for these mods. I'd be getting it for $500 (retails close to $1500) but don't want to spend a couple hundred getting it modded.
