Default New front bumper for JK's

This is a new bumper I will be making now to go with the TJ and YJ stubbies. This is on Silverxj's wifes dd (thanks for leaving it here while on vacation). Its basically just a simple stubby but I was able to keep the factory lights with a winch mount. Most make you choose between the two but since theres no real good reason to sink the winch down a few inches I left the lights in there. I also made the shackle mounts and they will be available seperately.

this thing is so damn sexy I tongue kissed it when we got home...

Thanks Tab! It got a definite approval from Cher-ray ... I'll add pics after it's painted ... and add more later once the hoop is added.

How come you put a nice looking stout bumper on a rig where nobody wheels?

Isn't that an oxy-moron?

Finally painted (I could have spent a little more time on it, but used what I had since it will eventually get sanded back off once we put a hoop on it)

I'll have to get a couple during the day once it's nice out.













and since everyone does it ... here's one with the headlights on.
