I cut out and bent the ends to go along the contour of the lower quarter. Yea i know ive got a gap between the bumper and tail lights. Fixin to fab up some tail light boxes inwhich will fill in that gap.. As you see i added a 2" reciever adapter to both front and rear for a remote winch bracket.
wicked looking bumpers but is not a PITA to get the hitch pin in behind the bumpers when you fit the winch / hitches etc???

I can do $300 shipped on that -one- if the buyer realizes it's a "one-off design study", needs some additional grinding, and the clevis mounts are basically a poor looking experiment.

I'd probably have to have over $500 to build another, but would be happy to do it.

That NON winch bumper really is a sweet looking bumper!! Nice design and nice fabricating job!!

Is it still in your way, and is it still for sale. Also do you have any pic's of the backside of it??


Thanks
Dennis

Here's one I'm workin on for my ZJ *note to self* wet winters under a shitty tarp is not nice to tube anyways it's a bumper/rad mount/winch mount

bit of a decieveing pic, it's really not crooked, but I had it resting on a floor jack and not bolted tight. uses all the old swaybar/rad/bumper mounts so 22 bolts I believe, I'll tie further back into my frame plating and motor cage when I have some time. That's a Tabor 9k tucked in there minus the old AC condensor and auto trans cooler

Thanks.

I sold it to a local guy who never stopped back by for pics

The winch one went to FL but I never got installed pics on that one either.

No backside pics, sorry.
