|mistermicroscope||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.|

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

To make ends
Cut like I did.
Rivet soft aluminum diamond plate to the back.

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.

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.

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.

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

First end made:

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

|Big Sarge||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|

I have to wire up my dogs too. I'm having trouble finding the right plug for the bulbs.

|Big Sarge||I put one on mine as well and have gotten tons of compliments. Just need to wire up my fog lights still, have been putting it off. I have a week of next week so that's on the to do list.|
|06-24-2013 04:00 PM|
It's getting there.

|Kevin063||I really like that. Like....a lot.|

I was inspired to put a jk bumper on my tj too because of your post.
I was bored.
I took off the old tj bumper.
Made two brackets from 1/4" steel.

Though there is a JK at my local dealership that has a darker middle section, that would probably look better against the dark green

|chimera555||I like it; very clever! Now just picture a winch sitting in the middle of it now|
|04-28-2012 04:41 PM|
|TJ Hooligan||I like it but think it would look better with the center section painted black|
|04-14-2012 06:15 AM|
|Thracks||Wow, JK bumpers look HUGE on TJs.|

|yjkid95||I have to say that actually doesnt look to bad. Granted it doesn't do anything performance wise offroad, it deffinettly looks really good and clean.|

|TJNewbie||It does look good!!|

It is a stubby, we just didn't cut the bumper all the way in. otherwise it would have been wider than the fenders.
like i said before there were really no modifications done to the JK bumper except the stubby end conversion kit. and it was put over the stock bumper which was cut and drilled so that this bumper could just be bolted on.
