TJ Front Bumper Design?
 
I want to sell my Rugged Ridge Heavy Duty off-road bumper with armor to build my own. Does anyone have design plans that they have done to give me an idea? I like the look of the bumper now but think it would be neat to create my own. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Personally I'm a fan of simplicity with function. I took a scrap piece of 2" x 4" 1/4" thick and cut it up to make mine. Welded up and good to go. Simple, and strong enough to withstand countless smashings into boulders :punk:

Been tempted to cap the ends, drill and tap, and add a port on it to turn it into a makeshift air tank. Might not hold a lot (~0.86 SCF @ 100 PSIG), but it'd be better than the "tank" on the side of the ARB Air Locker pump.

** hmm, top picture makes it looks like the bumper is kinda warped...must just be a bad picture.
