Default XJ Iron Scorpion front Bumper!

I got this for Christmas, been wanting to get it done never had the time. The wife and I got it done on Sunday. Very happy with how it turned out.













I need to paint the Gray on the jeep black now. and fix some of the paint on it. Did the spray on bed liner out of a Can. Was not set up before I put the bumper back on.

thanks for looking. My wife did all the welding.

Just a tip, under the gray trim is a common place for rust. Pull the trim off, grind it smooth and put bed liner on it. No rust and it looks slick.

The GA race car looks like she needs to get up and stretch her legs!

Looks good. Is there a hole on the backside for a hitch pin?

Yes there is. It is hard to get to, but it is there. My plans are to get a winch and use it on a hitch setup.
