Ok, so I know alot of guys on here are looking into front bumpers and rear bumpers. Everyones seen the stuff that Jcr, Aj's, Rigid, Detours etc... has on their sites but many of them do custom work that is not on the sites. So heres the thread, I think it could help alot of guys with their decision. So if you have a custom front, rear, or tire carrier from any of these companys post up a pic with the info! (hopefully this doesnt count as a pic request!)

It does count as a pic request, and I know that AJ takes his orders mostly for custom bumpers, how the customer wants them. Not sure about the others though, but I know that JCR and Rigid are quality even if they don't customize.

Ok, I just wanted myself and other to be able to see some of the custom orders people have had done for them... I thought it would help alot of people decide what they would like to have done & their options they have.

JCR put these on the Cherokee, and I bought it as a package deal :)

These are from their brand new designs for Cherokee bumpers, so I guess they aren't "Custom" anymore, but they look really sharp, and they perform well (like everything else JCR does).

Most certainly worth looking into!

Hopefully, I'll have some new pictures for you after this weekend (DMJC Wheeling Trip)!!!

After having a wrangler on 33s (BOOOOOORING) it's nice to have a vehicle that people think is kinda' cool.

That, and, I'm going to build this one up the right way! (I took too many shortcuts with the Wrangler, and that only led to disaster!)

But...yeah...I'll show it off any chance I get:laugh3:

Well, its not exactly a custom bumper, but it is one that isnt seen very often here on the west coast..... i am always getting asked about it.

Great fab work, superior fit & finish, quarter panel protection & an awesome tire carrier that gets your spare up and out of the way. No snagging it on ledges coming down or when climing up something steep.

Their stuff works!

this bumper isn;t for everyone, but my goal was to get the winch as close to the radiator as i could for the best possible approach angle. i am happy with my new approach angle :) just need to add some tube aroudn the front of my rig when i get a chance

Intrepid I love the looks of the bumper, kind of like a skid/bumper with the long slopped angle. You should throw some lights on it though;)

didnt want to ruin my approach angle, winch will go on a multi mount and be able to be used on the front and the back. once the exo is built ill be putting reciever mounts on the sides so ill be able to even roll myself over. also get across a collapsed section of road thats carved out on the side of a hill, as long as theres somthing up hill to attach to of course. ill also be able to easily store the winch inside the jeep/garage away from the weather and thiefs, i plan to build some universal cables that can clamp to the battery so i can use my winch on any vehicle that has a hitch.

i just cut into the back side and rewelded it together to get the shape

The mounts are quarter and go through the bumper and there is a layre of 3/16 also where the shackle mounts. The center is peices of 3/16 with braces for when i add a winch.

More Pictures!!! I am trying to come up with a bumper design of my own but I need a couple of more angles to figure out before I can get going on it. These bumpers are impresive!!
