Re: Build a bumper for a WK

The ARB is a bit too heavy and extends way too far in front of the WK, however it can be cut down and made to look really nice - but you're probably talking about $1000+ for the mods and $1000-$1500 for the bumper.

I designed and helped build my own bumper with most of the characteristics you're looking for, but it was very expensive (even with me doing 50-70% of the work). If you're in the Denver area I could hook you up with the guy who helped me fab my bumper, but it will cost at least $2K, probably much more.

Here's pics of my bumper:

Re: Build a bumper for a WK

I've got a buddy who does a lot of custom off road stuff out in here in So Cal... we were talking about making up a nice clean front bar that sticks with the lines of the jeep and bolts to the frame... it would probably run right around ~600 bucks... it would integrate a front skid plate and some tabs for lights in the front... probably my next big project

I love my 4xguard. Yea it doesn't provide as much protection but she does a damn good job! I tread lightly but there have been times where I mowed over some "stuff" and the bumper is perfecto!! Not bad on weight, either.

This Forum is awesome, welcome! You will find a lot of tips on little fun modifications you can do yourself without spending a lot of $$$.... as for the Jeep, not sure i can think of any problem areas off hand, if its got cloth interior just be ware that they stain EASY! like... even with water... some guys on here change out their seats with the SRT set. Not sure what model you're looking at but its probably a Laredo, thats what i'm rolling and i absolutely love it... good luck man!! Also, ive got about 45k miles on it and i consider that to be quite low, i bought it just over a year ago for just under 18k and 23k miles from a dealership which was a decent deal given the condition and miles... hopefully that will give you a nice platform to start with the price/product ratio.

Will this be your first Jeep? I'm on my 3rd....
