Pic2 - bumper

Here's my Hoss bumper. 1" steel plate, diamond over it, and supports running along the frame. Also, 18,000lb shackle welded to bumper. Works great for a lift point with an engine hoist!

Re: Pic2 - bumper

What about air flow to the radiator?

Re: Pic2 - bumper

I haven't done anything special for "cooling." I put in a 3-core radiator when I dropped in the 360, but that's about it. There are no "performance" cooling parts involved. The Horse ran about 180-185, but then I installed a small tranny cooler in front of the radiator (which also has the built in tranny cooler), and now it runs about 190-195. I was very concerned about air flow, but there's not much I can do about it.

The bumper was on there when I got the Jeep. I love it, but the stupid @#^*^$ welded it, including along the frame. And right on over the OEM bumper's bolts. So I couldn't take it off even if I wanted to, unless I find someone with a really good torch.

It does have an opening for a winch fairlead, along with a ground clamp and bolt holes. I just need a Ramsey or something that can side-mount.

As for strength, well...I'm 3 for 3 against trees, and tied with a concrete wall I accidentally ran in to. It chipped the paint a little, but a section of the wall crumbled. Good thing the wall held - I was on the top of a 7 story parking garage!

Re: Pic2 - bumper

canis, I love all that steel, if you are not having cooling problems, I sure would leave it on. I had a couple of fork lift forks they were about 3.5"x8", I was saving them for somethimg worthy, but I gave them away in a weak moment one day, bummer!
