Now how about some pics of how you mounted the plate.
I got in a hurry and didn't get any pics before I mounted it, but it's made of the same 2x6 c-channel that the bumper is. I cut off one side to make it 2x6 angle instead of channel and mounted it upside down on the bottom sideof the frame via brackets and 2 1/2" bolts per side. I also cut off the flimsy crossmember because it was in the way and worthless.
Did you make the attachment points/plates for your clevis??? You did a beautiful job, better than some of the bumpers that I have seen on line. I think that is what true jeeping is about right there. Making your jeep with your own sweat and blood. To many people buy into the store bought stuff. It does have it’s place but a 400 dollar bumper to me is rediculous when you can make a better one for a quarter of the price. Great job!!!
FWIW I mounted my solenoid box on top of the winch and it is pretty much out of the way and easily accessible.
I might end up doing this, but I'll have to make another bracket. If I try to mount it the way it's supposed to, it interferes with the grille. It's only attached by one of the two bolts in the pics.
[QUOTE=2K1TJ;5095]not too bad for some scrap c-channel and plate destined for the recycliing bin!!
Outstanding fab work,(Simplicity) and innovation using something you were going to trash. I think it looks every bit as good as the "Skidrow Offroad" prototype I have installed. Clevis Plates are Spot On..
Now get some great looking lights on that bumper
