Default Bumper Bracket Drawings(dimensioned) for XJ front Bumpers

Here is a dimensioned drawing for the big mounting plates you need to make a front bumper for an XJ.

Note: I had trouble getting it to print to scale (D-size) on my plotter so didn't make a template, but the dimensions worked for me..

http://www.lordsofevolution.com/hagg...umpermount.pdf

I used 6" x 0.250" thick steel plate for these.

Enjoy!

hmmm. I tried those dimensions and they didnt work for me. I sent the file to a buddy and he water jetted them out for me but they didnt work so I had to make my own template today. When I say they didnt work, they werent even close.

But they should all be the same. I used a template made from a 98 on my 90 and all the bolts fit just fine.

Yup, mine was a 98. I found the PDFs on NAXJA.com..

I would imagine they are the same...

There's two bolts that go through the original bumper mounts, then 3 holes which your steering botls go through, then one or two others just go through other holes on the frame.

I'd suggest making a cardboard template first and put it place and make sure it fits, thats what I did.

Also, when I drilled my plates, I tack welded them together and drilled as a pair, that way they were the same.

BTW you can take a pdf to kinkos and get it plotted out for around $5.00

Personally I just print to my plotter :)

Mine didnt come out right on my 96 but it was off just a little on the 3 holes the steering box would bolt to (both sides) and the front 2 holes were not even close. Guess I should have checked it before I cut it out.:tonka: I would like to thank Jesus for posting it cause it did get me in the ball park.

That template is no good for an 89 XJ 2 DR limited......FWIW.

This one is not good for above mentioned:
