Default bumper

well after waiting well over a month my new front bumper finally came. i went to put it on this after noon and it just doesnt quite fit. i was wondering if there is someone who could help my maybe tweak the holes a little bit and get it to fit. its on a 95 yj.

thanks,
zack

im not here to bash on the company who made it. i will say they are a reputable company and have done work on many jeeps here. i just eed someone who has a grinder to adjust the holes a little bit

other then that i am quite pleased with the bumper. it is exactly what i expected

Zack,

Why don't you give them a call and tell them to fix the shit quality bumper you paid hard earned money for! . . . I mean isn't that the most logical thing to do??

Get the drill size you need. Get someone to hold the ghetto made bumper up to your rig. Hold on tight and drill through the bumper and the frame at the same time. If you do not have access to get to mounting holes drill in clearance holes through the bumper to access mounting holes to the frame. After you get it mounted correctly weld up clearance holes, grind smooth, and paint.

If this seems like too much work simply weld the bumper to the frame. Do it yourself. Anyone can mig weld.

Its not bashing, you were just asking for help. Someone asked who made it. Honest question. Why not answer?

The "most logical thing to do" would be to determine which part is actually not quite right - the bumper or the frame.
