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.

Kevin 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!

95YamJam 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.

sparkyjeep rear bumper is just a bumper and reciever mount.
front bumper is made from 2x4 1/4" thick box steel. winch plate made from 1/4" plate and end caps made from 1/4" plate as well...
with that said... don't pull out in front of me... you won't like it.
it now has a 12k atlas winch on it..... (got too good of a deal to pass up)

If I was an elk I would run from your jeep! That bumper looks like it wouldn't flinch from a direct meteor strike! Good work!

deucestudios well I had this plate of 3/8ths. Or maybe 1/2. Not sure.



So I added the 30* bend, burned on top pieces with bolt holes, and capped the ends.



I kinda liked it, but it didn't look right.



Then I decided I really should have made it a winch mount, but that meant pushing it out for room for the plate.
I bought the plate... didn't make that, found a cheap used one.
So I decided to angle it, instead of the flat front.
Well that put the bottom of the frame rail below the bumper.
So I added another 1" long strip of steel to it, tapered again, butted a small piece of angle iron to the inside of it all, then notched and folded up the bottom bolt hole on the front of the frame.



Didn't get good pics while I was reworking it, but here's how it ended up.

So I will most likely drill them out, paint the bare metal of the holes, run my wires and then seal the hoels up as much possible with black silicone.

So make sure you remember to leave spaces for things like light wires and if you do a back bumper make a place to accomadate the wires for your trailer lights.
