Now my grizz is still brandy new, but I know that the front bumper will meet its match some day. Just by looking at it, I know it would look great with a custom bumper made of DOM tubing. I really like this one with the d-ring mounts integrated.

Looks like a better bumper then the cheesy stock one for sure. Is that a home made custom or a purchased one do you know?

From what I know it's a custom job. Simple to make if you have a tube bender. Theres a few guys I wheel with that have a bender to make roll cages and such.

Does any of them own a welding machine? Maybe something to consider making if the equipment is available. I like the idea of the two D-rings welded there in place and it looks to be very strong.

I would pay for a brush gaurd like that!! Very cool!!!!! However if fabricating I would make the sides go around the headlights for protection not under them...have the hole between the two pipes be where the headlights shine through...and you could even mount KC lights on the top of this bumper!! oh the sweet posibilites

Blue, any of the guys who have a bender got a welder! Some of them with some slick Miller setups. I too like the idea of the welded d-rings. Very stout and Jeep like. Here's a couple of pictures of custom tube work I had done on my Samurai.

Wow very nice job! Tell you what, when you ever come over we will have to get some ideas and measurements together and see what we could come up with. Then maybe you can talk with one of your buddys and see what could be done. I also agree with Marine on having something to guard the headlights. Id'e like to combine the bumper above with this for the headlights.
