Quit teasing, and build me a bumper. Is there a waiting list, first deposit first delivery?

i have to do a few more things.

i'm going to sub-contract out some of the process of building the bumper. i'm working on cad plans so the people can bend my pieces right. i'll do the final assembly. '

i want to just have the pieces bend and cut and so i can do a little less work. plus it'll make it easier to get these out quicker.

I look forward to your web page with both the Overland front winch bumper, the rocker guards and the rear tire carrier. I personally hate having the spare tire UNDER the jeep. Not only a pain to get out and/or air up but if you really need it offroad theres a good chance you wont be able to extract it. john

If you are going to put DRINGS on the front bumper I hope you will thru weld (ie weld it to both sides of bumper) john

i wouldn't worry about it. the center part of the bumper that holds the winch will be 1/4" steel. i have never been able to rip 1/4" steel, maybe put a little bend in it, but thats it.

and if you are talking about rosette welds, they will not be necessary.

i have not had any of my welds fail on me yet. i built the suspension that was on my old toyota rock crawler. i built all the mounting points and welded them all to the frame. i also designed my suspension system, flatbed, and bumpers. the truck would still be alive today if the dumbass that bought it from my brother had not rolled it 14 times down a mountain. luckley for him i had installed a roll cage.

Aren't recovery points usually bolted on and not welded? I don't really know that much about it but it seems that the ones I've seen are bolted.
