Default My New Cherokee Rear Bumper

I built this bumper for my cherokee. I had one real similar but wasn't happy with how it tied in. I did some research and seen a member on here do something real similar and on naxja.org I seen it done like this a few times.

I made the whole thing out of 3/16" thick metal, drings are 3/4" thick and there are a total of 18 bolts that hold this to the jeep.

What do you think of it?

I have a semigloss black, I'm going to redo the quarter panel guards at the same time so they match. I thought about a hammered silver like the lights but with the rest of the stuff I built its all black and thought it might look awkward.

This would look great with high line rear quarters . the bumper could extend forward to the rear tire.

Looks great
