I am modeling some new bumper corners I made myself. Will be finishing them up tomorrow night. They are just tacked up now. Going to look just like the smitty built corners for their jk bumper. Stay tuned for pictures I'll be putting some up tomorrow night. Can't wait for the stubby look :pepper: :pepper: :pepper: :pepper: :pepper:

there will be another squarish plate exactly where my hand is with another flat peace to cap it off. I am bending the quarter panel mount down and bolting it vertically to the side, getting rid of the bracket that sits horizontally. This will allow the end of the bumper to sit closer to the unibody.

Got the bumper caps finished. Didn't get the holes drilled though. Will be finishing that up Thursday and some rough paint for the time being.

I beat it to heck and tugged on it a little bit. Then used hole for the right angle bracket to bolt it flat. Then beat it flatter. Cause I was happy I fixed my pinched quarter panel from hitting a deer.

Image
The 5 minute pounding mount......
I do plan on maybe folding it into the inside but it already sits pretty flat.

Image
The oem styl quarter panel mount.......


Next I'll have mounted pictures then Next I have a hoop bent and start experimenting with some tubing. Possibly thinking about doing a rear bumper as well.

Inspiration!!!

The other side was much quicker and cleaner looking because I bent it higher up and only bent it down once. I didn't quite know how I was going to bolt it up had a few ideas in mind so that side got a good beating haha

Still not done. Kinda pissed at my welds I was rushing. Nothing some linex can't fix. This is my first time fabricating anything tips to any other first timers is start on paper!!!! Starting from cardboard gave me an idea and I got excited. Ending up rushing the whole process. I got kinda lucky and I think they will work out.

Great color for a Jeep, too! :D

Alright guys didn't like the wings I made they didn't quite fit my description for stubby so I went at it again. Ditched the 3/16 jumped up the 1/4 in steel and will be welding the stubby corners to the winch plate instead of bolting strait to the front. Gonna be cool! Stay tuned!!!
