Default ZJ 5.9 Front and Rear Bumpers

First I need to apologize for the lack of build pictures.
Built these at school over the summer.

3/16 inch material, almost all cuts made with a Piranha iron worker, lots of gusseting on the inside, some is Tig welded using a Miller Syncrowave 250 DX, most was Mig with a Miller 212.







More pictures and details on first page of my build thread, link in my signature.

That front bumper is beautiful! The lines are like it came from the factory. The rear is really nice too, but that face. Just wow! Great job

The front is my favorite to look at. I back into most every space now!

Thanks! I was going for a factory look, sort of... more like what it should have been like from the factory. They were powdercoated to match. Should look even better after a lift and tire up-sizing.

Thanks to everyone!
Now I want to buy another XJ to put bumpers on, each one is going to be better than the last. My woman is thinking about getting a TJ...
