DIY Front Bumper

Hi All, anybody purchase or know anything about these JCR DIY clone front winch bumpers on E-Bay??? Looks like a perfect duplicate at half the cost. Sorry for the size of the image cant seem to make it any smaller.

Re: DIY Front Bumper

I got one for Xmas, Haven’t put it together yet but looks like simple job. When we get it welded up I’ll know more. Should be good stout bumper. Let you know how it turns out. Sage

DIY Front Bumper

Just pulled the trigger on the eBay rear bumper (mate to the above bumper).

I will report back to this thread on it when I get to it.

Re: DIY Front Bumper

I usually build my own bumpers, but a couple years ago I bought 2 Dirtbound DIY kits, They are well thought out, it still takes a bunch of lay-out/welding/grinding but they did save a lot of time cutting/shaping material.

Same here. Have the Mohave front and rear. It was a fun build but glad to be finished with them.

Re: DIY Front Bumper

If you want a real challenge, I used a piece of 2x2 .120" for my top tube with a radius bend to match my body-line.
