Stubbed Stock Bumpers/ Jack Mount

Being the cheap Barstard that I am & also wanting to save weight, I stubbed my stock bumpers & mounted my jack & shovel all for under 10 bucks.

Two 5 inch bolts were welded to the front tow hooks & 30 rivets for the bumpers.

After I cut the end caps off, I had to cut the steel bumper. I cut two slits in it & bent it in towards the jeep until it reached 90 degrees. Then I simply heated up the plastic end caps & forced them over the bumper. Had to cut a slit in them to help accomplish this. Make sure you cut the caps long enough. The passenger side turned out better than the drivers side.

The shovel & Jack are out of the way & easy to get off. Just a 3/4 inch wrench is needed. I put rubber belting between all metal pieces & some radiator hose under the shovel blade. It doesn't rattle at all.




The rear was pretty easy too. The plate is an old yield sign I had. When trimming the rear plastic, you have to leave a "tab" on the top so you can heat it up & bend it down so you don't have a void on the top edge.








Any Q's just ask.

I didn't take any pictures in the middle of the job. Never thought I'd be posting it up. Just knew I hated the stock look so I stayed up one night & finished it up. I didn't take either bumper off to do these mods. I used a wood hand saw for the pastic & a sawsall for the metal.

On the rear there was no metal. Just used wood handsaw & cut from the bottom up, remembering to leave a tab on the top so you can heat it up & bend it down to match the rear most edge.

There is a bracket that must be removed & a bit of plastic in the wheelwell that must be trimmed off.
