    Picture of the bumper that I made. Would any one be interested in buying one if I sold them. Thinking $125

    I like the tire rack idea and the brushguard idea too.

    Keith-
    Im just a young'en and I have never welded before, so maybe thats why I dont understand... but. On the D-Rings on that rear bumper, I am assuming you welded something like some tubing to the bumper for the D-Rings to hinge on. My question is-- after you welded it, how did you get it to look so perfect and smooth? I dont believe this could be done with a conventional angle grinder. Thanks!

    Later,

    when I buy the d-rings they come with a U shaped piece that is welded too. Then just make a good bead on the top and bottom and no grinding is necessary

    Could you post a side picture? And would you be able to make a front one to hold a winch?

    I haven't made myself one yet. Everything is easy just takes time. IM currently working on my cross-over steering and swing out carrier. I have all the parts for both just not enough time. I also bought a Wilderness roof rack from a guy for $50 and trying to modify it to go on the hardtop. Just to many irons in the fire. Ill keep you posted
