Cookie Cutter TJ Front Bumper

Front bumper Build:

I wasnโ€™t a fan of the front bumper that came on the TJ when I purchased it.ย  Not only in the way it looked (too busy), but it also hung out quite a bit in front.ย  I donโ€™t have too many photos of it on the Jeep, but it looked like this on the ground ๐Ÿ™‚

So started fabbing up a simple stubby bumper:

I tucked it up as close as I could to still have room for a winch to fit in front of the stock sway bar:

Test fitting everything:

Assembled and painted:

I still need to get some stock TJ tow hooks to put on it as Iโ€™m not a fan of D rings (much nicer to just throw a strap on a hook for a quick yank).ย  The D ring mounts will be used to mount the tow bar though.
