Justed fabbed a YJ bumper

A good friend of mine just picked up a YJ and bought me a sheet of 3/16" metal so I made him a new bumper. Tell me what you think. I'll post more pics when its finished, painted and installed.

yes, overall design looks cool (kinda wanna see it on the Jeep before I would say "I would own it"
additionally (not that i could do much better) but the big boogery welds on some of the angles do detract from the overall coolness, but maybe thats the look you were going for.. idk

Looks good man, just touch up those welds a tad and maybe hit it with some powder coat and it'll look right as rain.

I cleaned up the welds and everything looks nice and clean now. All the joints were welded open root with fcaw in a combination of flat and vertical (uphill) which makes some of the welds look rough but strong as hell.



And here it is mounted on my buddy's jeep

Bumper looks ok, but does that thing have any positive caster with those long ass shackles?

I like it. It's tough. You should post it up in the front bumper thread.

@theRockHopper Just posted it on the thread. Definitely some cool ideas on there. Just reminds me that I need a tube bender

@crashnzuk It's my buddies jeep. I'm going to help him lift it but I need to figure out the steering before doing the soa. Point me in the right direction and that eyesore of lift shackles will be solved,

If he's gonna keep the stock axles, there is a place that has a high steer arm specifically for the YJ/XJ dana 30. I don't recall the name of the place, but someone here should chime in. It is just for the drag link, but that's better than nothing. I used the stock steering and a drop pitman arm on my YJ when I first sprung it over. It worked, but did have some bump steer.

Good to know. I will just throw a steering stabilizer on there for the bumpsteer and it should ride fairly well. I'm planning on flipping his front springs around so the shackle is in the rear. Should ride nicer that way. What junkyard leaf springs are people putting underneath these?

A steering stabilizer won't help with bump steer. When the suspension cycles, it will either turn the steering box or turn the tires. No shock absorber will fix that. The key to driving with bumpsteer is to drive with a soft touch so the steering wheel can move and the tires stay straight. If he's keeping the stock axle, that high steer set-up is really quite cheap and would be well worth it.
