MJ rear bumper completed


Recommended Posts

Haven't posted much here, but I thought you all might be interested in seeing my step bumper with integral receiver. There are a few slight changes I'd make if I were doing it again, but overall I'm pretty pleased with it. The gap below the tail lights needs closed up a little. The license plate light mounting was an afterthought and I didn't have room to get the drill in to make the lights level. It was designed in Autodesk Inventor. All the parts were laser cut and CNC formed.

Thanks for the compliments. If there's any interest in them, I'd make a run of DIY kits. I think I should be able to do the laser & press brake work and ship them anywhere in the lower 48 for under $200. It's all 3/16" plate except the 1/4" reinforcement under the step. The whole thing weighs about 90 lbs. I'm going to do a matching one for the front sometime, but I probably won't mess with it until fall.

Man if I only had the funds. I like this much more than the run of the mill 2X4 bumpers everyone else is making (no offense to anyone who makes them I just don't care for them on a MJ). I will probably be in touch when I come up with some cash.

$200 for a knock down rear bumper kit is a great idea :cheers:

 

The style isn't exactly what I'd want, but :thumbsup: to a very creative design.

 

I've been wanting to do 'something' to my current bumper, and this has put my thinking into a slightly different direction.

 

Thanks for posting it.

 

:cheers:
