This new TJ and YJ rear bumper is fabricated from a combination of 6061-T6 aluminum and carbon steel to produce a very strong and light weight product that weighs about 30lbs less than the traditional rear bumper and tire carrier. The total weight of this product is about 41lbs.
The bumper sub-structure and lower frame tie-in plates are fabricated from 3/16 inch carbon steel plate with a 1/4 inch thick receiver tube. The d-ring mounts are 3/4 inch steel plate. This weldment is fully MIG welded. The bumper body is made from 3/16 inch 6061-T6 aluminum. It is formed with large radius tooling to maintain the integrity of the material. The body is then TIG welded on the inside and the outside.Details:
