Kinda New - Kinda Old with Empty Pockets

What's up JKO. My name is Mike, I thought I was already registered here, but I guess not. I live in Louisiana, have had 2 jeeps myself ('64 Willy's 350 SB - '84 CJ) - my wife owned a '11 Rubicon, my son has a '08 2 door sport with some extras and we just got my daughter a '12 JKU Sahara in February so she can get used to it when she gets her license in December. My current project is my daughters Jeep. So far I have removed the 2.5" spacers that came on it and replaced those with 2.5" Rock Crawler springs, Rubicon Shocks and (don't hate) 2" wheel spacers (only because we still have the stock wheels and it will not be going offroad anytime soon). She has been looking at bumpers as of late and since I have a mig welder, and access to a plasma cutter (neighbor used to have a metal shop which is now his garage 13k sq.ft of whatever you need) I figured I could maybe just build a bumper. I am somewhat decent in a couple of modeling software (Fusion360 and Sketchup) but having some trouble getting angles right. I was curious if anyone had done this already through the software first, then to actual building. Also, since I am paying for both Jeeps, I am sure at some point I will get one back, but until then, I will just keep modding the offsprings. Anyways, great to be here - seems like a great group of people.

Hey, Mike
Welcome to JKOwners.

This is a great place for your JK/JKU upgrades and info relae to all things JK.

I am interested in details on your '64 Willys , man ; feel free to throw up a foto of it ( use an online photo hosting like Imgur instead of trying to directly upload to your JKO acct which you won't be able to do immediately) ...I am hoping I can run across a Willys flatfender from that era someday in near future. I wanna build it into a crawler ..finding one is tough part, heh.
Getting harder & harder to do!

Glad to have ya aboard
