Here is the first sheets of steel we used 8th of an inch because we didn't want it to be extremely heavy and cause the front end to SagImageUploadedByJeepGarage1427861751.931834.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1427861765.122638.jpg

I'll be posting more pics as we get things done right no it looks extremely bulky I know but that's because the top is cut higher so that we can bend that steel to get the right shape on it

Re: 06wk bumper build

I'm definitely interested in seeing the final product! There is next to nothing out there for 05 WK bumper replacements, so I'd consider doing something like this. Take lots of pics!

Edit: by the way, I dig your wheels! Mine are still stock, and look really lame. What do you have?

Re: 06wk bumper build

So we actually did get it mounted a everything the way it was supposed to be but we then realized the bumper was to big for the skid plate and the stinger so we are going to cut our frame back along with the mounts and see how she looks so total build time as of now is three weeks! 😁 nothing on a jeep is easy but it's all well worth it

Excited to see how it turns out! Are you building out of tube or sheet metal? I saw a guy build one for his older GC and it turned out phenomenal! Didn't get any pics though.
