    Default 1995 Jeep Wrangler Don's Jeep Build



    Don wanted me to build a rear bumper for his '95 Wrangler with a swingaway tire carrier. Duplications are from the swingaway carrier I am building for Juno's Cherokee. Here are the start pictures:

    Second part. Plates hanging off the spindles are 1/4" steel and are for the double shear mounting to the bumper. And no, to answer any questions, the bumper is not going to over hang the sides of the Jeep 10". I haven't gotten to the 'cut to fit' point...

    Actually those are the same ones from JeepTubes and have a grease zerk. The A to Z ones do not. Not that that is a real selling point on the difference.

    Here is the update on Don's rear bumper. Pretty much waiting on the Jeep right now for final adjustment on tire carrier height and for the location of the bumper mounts. Everything above the swing arm is just tacked in place right now.

    Yeah, he was skulking in the neighborhood....I am doing a bit of 'find the mystery noises' and check and tighten stuff on his rig today.

    Update. The first picture shows classic powder coating issues. These were the existing bumper mounting brackets. The powder coating lifted off with a putty knife and revealed a massive amount of rust underneath. Ever wonder why almost all of the fabricators paint their stuff and offer 'powder coating' as an option?

    Shoot me a PM, Jonathan, and I'll hook you up with that mount set up. It worked sweet!

    Next in line as I was waiting for the paint to dry on the rear, were the sliders. I cut off the existing ones, added two more mounting points to the frame with plates, used the existing two frame plates that were already there, and added gussets to all of them. I have yet to add the tube kicker, but since I have to do a hoop for the front bumper/winch, I figured I would bend everything at the same time. The sliders were pretty straight forward.
