Car: 1997 Jeep TJ Wrangler 4.0 Sport Soft Top

Colour: Lapis Blue

The original bumpers on the Jeep TJ Wrangler have a bit of a 'soft look' to them, when compared to the older military style Willys' Jeep. To this extent many TJ Wrangler owners remove the plastic side mouldings to give their Jeep, the proper 'open look' bumpers.

The trouble with the original stock bumpers though is they will not take muck of a knock off road, and will very easily bend out of shape. Being made out of angled steel though, does not mean they can easily be bent back into shape.

Many owners choose to customise their Jeep Wranglers with more rugged, often tubular steel bumpers. These are quite readily available from many 4x4 accessaries dealers. The alternative is to have some one-off custom bumpers specially made to suit your vehicle and needs.

These bumpers were made by ourselves. We simply purchased a long length of rectangular tubular steel and cut it half, giving us the right lengths for one front and one rear bumper.

The tow hitch receivers, shackle mounts and shackles were purchased from a 4x4 parts specialist and these were then welded where required to the tubular steel bar. The bumpers were all treated/painted using POR15 range of paints and preparation products to protect them from the elements and reduce the possibility of rust and corrosion appearing on them.

The oversize rear tyre was just catching the rear bumper slightly as you opened or closed the boot door. This was only a temporary problem though and was later rectified when the custom made swing out wheel/tyre carrier was built to carry the heavier and larger than normal spare wheel/tyre.
