Build a bumper for a WK

Someone seriously needs to build a nice bumper for the WK, the 4xguard is not enough protection, and the arb the tubing kills it in my opinion and makes it heavier. Its a little bit too bulky also. Someone needs to make one a little slicker, save some weight and you will make some series money. Someone with some fab skill should do this, I know id buy one. I smashed up my bumper in the woods the other day. Just dreaming sorry

Re: Build a bumper for a WK

My fab skills are not the best, I would not trust myself making it clean and getting everything clean

Re: Build a bumper for a WK

No one makes a decent bumper for the WK. There have been several attempts to get a group buy going to have a semi-custom fab shop make bumpers for the WK (like ShrockWorks), but you need to get 20 pre-orders before it's economically viable.

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:

Pay me now or pay me later (when you've ruined your bumper on the trail).

Re: Build a bumper for a WK

I might be able to get one of my buddies to build a WK bumper. He has a company called truck defender. There bumpers are all aluminum so they are light but still very strong. If anyone is interested let me know and ill see what I can come up with. Something like RedRockers would be great (Nice work by the way)

Re: Build a bumper for a WK

I think they get somewhere around $1600 for the polished version of the dodge, chevy, ford bumpers. Ill do some checking on it and see what it would take. I dont believe they have one for any Jeep yet.
