Heavy duty bumper

I need some help finding a bulky heavy duty front bumper for my rubicon. Needs to be under $150 but heavy duty. Tough enough to push anything out of the way. Id appreciate the help

If you want a tough sturdy bad a*s bumper your gonna have to make it yourself. Just about all the after market "bumpers" you see out there for these machine arent bumpers at all they're bolt on brush guards (keeps your existing bumper and they bolt over top of it)

I bought a Moose bumper that bolts over the factory front bumper for $70 on EBay. It's pretty stout and looks good too. Hit a small tree on the last ride and there wasn't a scratch on it. The tree wasn't so lucky lol

I'll check them out. But I cant make my own because I don't have the equipment to do so. And if you have a a shop to fabricate one, the price would be crazy!

I was thinking of buying a small wire welder from harbor freight.. Would that get the job done?

It should. any small 110 machine would do it as long as you get your heat, and wire settings right. And I would recomend nothing bigger than.030 wire if you decide to get a small machine or you wont get the penetration you need.

I have the biggest lincoln 110 made and I think now im running .035 wire in it and I like it. But Im also running 75/25 gas in it, Ive never run flux core through it but it can make some good welds if you know what you're doing. I like running gas with mine, seems to make a cleaner looking weld with less chance of porosity.


If you show me a couple model numbers I can tell you yay or nay.
