MCE Jason Nice bumper, keep up the fab work!

OsageJeep The spare tire is a bumper in itself incase any trucks or Jeeps hit me...and heaven forbid if a car hits me beneath the spare...and it doesnt bounce around, we built a little plate that you bolt on the tailgate (or whatever you'd like to call it) where the original stock tire carrier bolted on and we have a spring-loaded pull pin that goes into the mount plate..we also reinforced underneath on the inside of the bumper where the swing-away part is

60mg Damn! It looks like it's half the vehicle weight-wise massive! God forbid someone rear-ends you all you need to buy is some spray paint but the other dude ...
Nice

matching newbie back bumper

This is the back bumper (bad iPhone pics, I know) but I figured I would get them on here..I know it looks like a lot of empty space but I was planning on wrapping the back corners in treadplate and putting flush-mount LEDs where the original brake/turn signal lights were and then putting some flush mount back-up lights in the back bumper to occupy some of that empty space..

Rastaman69 I can't tell if you boxed it in or not...did you? Also how did you attach it to the frame...bolt or weld? If you bolted it did you use the 1/8th" plate steel for your mounts also? Finally when you attached your D Ring tabs did you use pass thru welds? Just curious cause I'm finishing up my rear bumper, and am going start on a front bumper next.

BTW It looks really nice.

arrowhead Finally had time to get thru this post today. That's a nice looking bumper.

Rollers888 That looks awesome. Nice job!

Blackbetty94 Looks good. I'm building one myself. Does it set back farther then the stock bumper?
Mine is deeper then stock, so I'm gonna have to notch it so the shackles fit.

SUBZEROCOOL Nice fab work, and welds

My brother may go pipeline so if so he'll take the welder with him. So who knows

60mg What steel did you use?
11-25-2010 12:14 AM
Lawngnome WOW, great job.
11-25-2010 12:14 AM
jcf Thats a nice bumper, good job!
11-25-2010 12:09 AM
OsageJeep I was wondering if anybody had any ideas for some homemade side steps..I have the tube chrome side steps on it right now and those don't go well with my new bumpers, I am lookin for ideas
11-24-2010 10:37 PM
07XMan2Door Very nice. Very tasteful indeed. Great job.
11-24-2010 10:31 PM
OsageJeep yeah the d-ring shackles are pretty small but my brother had them and was willing to give them to me for free, so I figured since I would probably just use the tow hooks anyways, i'd save 30 dollars on d-rings. I put regular sized ones on the back bumper we built to match
11-24-2010 10:22 PM
csamn2007 That looks good, good work!
11-24-2010 10:11 PM
nick50471 Looks good.
11-24-2010 10:10 PM
mcgyver1467 Nice build, looks real good. D-ring shackles look a little small though. But then again you still have tow hooks on there too.
11-24-2010 10:10 PM
airborne*yj Not bad work, looks good...
