Jeep Grand Cherokee Custom Bumpers
Shown is a front and rear bumper build we did for a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Difficulties with building bumpers for Grand Cherokees include the fact that they have a uni-body construction. This means that there is basically no frame under the vehicle and therefore mounting brackets get complex. Sturdy brackets were designed and cut out of 1/4″ steel plate for the mounting of these bumpers. With the winch under load the bumper shows little movement in relation to the body. Construction is similar to the 4Runner bumper, 1/4″ core pieces, and 1/8″ exterior shell. Newer editions of the bumper include sunk in lights and brush guard bars as options.
Rear bumper with integrated swingout. Rated for 1800lbs and has two latches for redundancy.
