jk bumper on commander

I would argue that any bumper can fit on the commander. Your only limited by how much custom fabrication your willing to do. A harbor freight welder, some power tools and some creative vision can get you pretty far. I fabricated a winch bumper for a Cherokee to fit my commander because I liked the look of it compared to available bumpers designed for our jeeps. It does require a willingness to custom fabricate but if you want something bad enough, the only that can stop you is YOU. I say if you want a jk bumper and think the look will fit your vision then make it happen. Good luck.

cherokee bumper on my commander

07jeepXK, I'm sorry I'm new here and as a truck driver who only has his phone as his internet, I'm not sure how to post photos in a discussion like this. I did post two albums in the photo gallery of the commander one specifically showcasing the bumper. If you need proof you can look there, but why would I lie about that? I'm sure you meant no disrespect but maybe asking to see pics because you would like to see some custom fab at work might make new members like myself feel more wanted and not like their getting in on the tail end of an elitist group. Just a thought. Also the bumper has a few more finishing touches left to do before it's complete, but being on the road I things move slowly because I can only work on it when I get home time. Thanks.

He didn't mean anything bad by it. "Pics or it didn't happen" is a saying we have here. It is customary to post pics when you make a claim such as yours.

As I stated, I'm sure he meant no disrespect, but as a new member I had no idea that you guys have that saying. To me it just felt like he was calling me out a little at first. No harm no foul. As I'm sure you have seen there are pictures in the photo gallery and I think the bumper has turned out pretty nice so far. I have fabbed a bracket to fill a little of that gap under the headlights, and it includes a tab to reattach the lower headlight mount. I also have ordered the bull bar that protects the grill and offers lighting brackets. It shouldn't be much longer now and it will be finished. The point of all this is that if you want something bad enough you just have to go make it happen! If it isn't available yet that just means you will be the first to have it.

donovanf's gallery is here. Interesting idea for that bumper. Do you have any plans to fill in the gaps below the lights?

How are you liking the Superlift? Any issues?
