Looks nice, I bet it weighed a ton though. I like beefy front bumpers, then if you hit a tree or a deer, it doesn't flinch.

Well, one of those is on Toyota with a frame, one is on a Unibody Jeep. I posted a bumper build a while back (use search in this forum with me as the author) to see the typical plates used for mounting to an XJ.
