I like the looks of them but not the price so I decided to build my own.


working out from the center


welded the gussets before I couldn't get to them any more and added a brace just so the ears would somewhat hold their shape during fitup



boxing it in



getting there


mocking up the outsides


with metal instead of cardboard


drivers side done


as I was cutting pieces for the drivers side I cut some for the passenger side also, so the second side went very quickly. The passenger side is about 1/4" lower than the drivers side, so tomarrow I'll tweak that and cut the ends off and make caps for them.





This has been a fun build, when I'm finished with the front I plan to make a rear also. To finish the front I have to cut off ends and make caps, cut in some fog lights, add a "baja" bar, mount some KC's and add recovery points. Still debating on a coating for it, I am torn between powder coat and spray on bedliner, I am leaning toward the bedliner only because I want to do my nerf bars also and I think the bedliner would be more durable....but who knows?

Looks like you did one hell of a job. Did you make it for a wench while you were at it, Warren or Ramsey?

I had a 10,000 lb Warren and it was fantastic. Carried a rear axle half, a sledge hammer, sntach block and some chain. I wasn't afraid to go anywhere.

It's actually a cross between a Road Armor and a Fab Fours bumper, I took the features I liked about both bumpers and incorperated them into one.


thanks for all the compliments guys!

Looks good. I wish that you were closer to me and maybe we could have hooked up on making a bumper for my Commander.

Here is the finished bumper, I plan on one final fitting before sending it off for paint or powder coat.
