Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

Hey guys, I just got done fabbing up some frame plates to build a front bumper off of. I designed them in AutoCAD and I can have them laser cut. Price would be about $60-65 for a pair. They will be cut from 1/4" A572 Steel.

Also, I have some nice D-ring brackets made up. They are 5/8 thick laser cut plate that accept a 3/4" D-ring. They are $45 a pair shipped.

Anyone interested?

Re: Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

The d-ring brackets, would they be like a tow hook bracket? If so would they provide more clearance than tow hooks?

Re: Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

cut em so the d-ring tab goes through the stock bumper, it will solve the problem of every stockish tow hook bracket which is severe bending and clearance issues.... i think it could be a hot item... agreed?

Bingo! I'd chuck my tow hook brackets in a hurry for something like that at $45

Re: Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

I'd be interested. Like Doug said. Something that goes through the stock front bumper....as a trusted recovery point. As I'm not interested in getting a full on bumper something to use as a pull point would be great.

Re: Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

These parts are just for fabricating... That being said, one could possibly buy a set of frame brackets and a pair of d-ring tabs, weld them together, cut holes in the stock bumper, and get what you guys are describing. I could definitely make them for you guys using these parts, but they wouldn't be $45... that price was just for the d-ring tabs, not the plates.Here:

These are the frame plates:



And the D-ring tabs:

Re: Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

I would def be interested in some bumper brackets/frame plates, From the looks of it they use all the mounting points and should be winch ready Just curious how far beyond the front mounting points they extend? (aka how much extra steel is there to play with at the bumper end?)

Re: Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

Tyler.
Have you thought about making a steering box brace to add to this? I'm just shooting from the hip, I don't know if the bumper mounts themselves would be enough. Just an idea. I'd be interested in both the bumper mount and D ring combo for an easy recovery point on Big Red

Re: Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

Alright guys, they extend 8" from the front of the little sheet metal flange that sticks out past the front "frame rail" (the part with 2 bolt holes). However, if you think you need more let me know. I need to know how many people want a set for sure that way I can get a quote on how much to cut them out. Obviously, the more I have cut the cheaper they are b/c a lot of the cost is in the set-up. Post up if you for sure want a set, I can get them cut out and you guys can paypal me money to pay for them.

And yes, they tire into every possible place on each side lol, the only way there could be more bolts is if you drilled more holes in the jeep. They are most definitely winch ready!

Re: Feeler: laser cut front XJ bumper brackets

Can put me down for a set but I have to take some quick measurements to make sure 8" is enough (it should be more than enough though). Just can't do that just yet since the Jeep is in the shop. Will post up as soon as I get the XJ back.
