rketr Found a pic...


Here's a cool tip...when you get your winch, make the winch plate utilize the 4 screws that hold the bumper in place. Makes it removable for when not in use. (The 80-100 lbs off the front helps on the gas bills...)



Diff note: noticed that yours has the ends closed off...you might be able to also use it as an air tank as well...

However, if you hit any sort of rocks, a wider one will get in the way of allowing you to crawl up them. I have one similar in width and am looking to knock another 3 or 4 inches off each side...

Looks good.

cavediverjc That's true. Take a good look at your old stock stamped bumper. The only place where it offers real protection is in front of the grille. The ends will just fold into itself if you hit it hard enough on something.

Your new bumper looks great!!

Now get a winch and you're all set!!

mrbigjeep oh well. i may go to tube fenders and a full width bumper with tube fenders would look ridiculous. plus the ends on the stock bumper would probably cave in anyway. it was already dented.

stock bumper didn't come out more than half the tire anyway

[TheYJGuy] I didn't mean about the engine, I meant the wheels and axles.

debruins i don't think thats necessarily true cause the only portion not protected by the bumper is the tires and fenders none of the engine compartment and none of the passenger compartment is directly behind those two things

my new front bumper

here is my new front bumper...looks pretty darn sharp. thick steel, very beefy, nice ends, and huge shackle tabs with really nice welds (pics definitely don't do justice).
