Front Bumper Finally !

The front bumper is going on.

Got a plate winch bumper for the Edge a while back, before the rear one.
Finally got a shop to put it on while I do remodeling.

The frt bumper is a Custom 4x4 Fabrication Winch Bumper.

OK here is what you wanted BUT not really !

Here is a pic of the bumper on a Ranger but not mine… can’t remember who this belongs to, please post if they know.
I am going to have the mounts modified a little to bring the bumper in some. I want it as close as possible, allowing for the winch mounting. I will need to mod the area around the tires if it sticks out in that area after mods.




and another, this one looks good: again, can’t remember who this belongs to, please post if they know.
This one looks good, after seeing this one I WAS thinking of painting mine the same color as the truck but thinking black now.

This is the bumper… showing the mounting on the bumper side and the location for the FOg Lights; I think 4.5” lights but will need to do some measuring before buying, maybe just some DRL on all the time, low wattage bulbs, maybe LEDs:

Tomorrow will be the test and we will see how things go with modifying the mounting and the bumper.

Hope these appease the hordes of info grabbers and gives you guys the fix you need.

I know no pictures $uck.

This is a Jeep Front Bumper modified to fit by Custom 4x4 Fabrication of OK City, OK, Mike is the owner and is a good guy. Was willing to talk, was willing to help out to get things right. The work is some of the best I have seen, the finish is really good IMHO, maybe some clean up if you want the perfect look but nothing is perfect these days.
The bumper is HD all the way and build from thick metal, the welding is really good (my opinion on his work is based on 30 years as a Quality Assurance Engineer so not just, “Wow that’s nice”, this guy is good at what he does). check out his site and see what he has to offer. For the price vs quality there is none better.
Here is his site: http://www.custom4x4fabrication.com/

Also, got a new sticker for the rear side to replace the OEM EDGE sticker, same EDGE Lettering, hoping to look good.

Didn’t get the truck to the shop yet.
Needed it for a project and never got back there.

I need to contact the mechanic and see when he has room.

Pretty heavy duty saying someone should die for a fake picture but which one are we talking about.

Here is what I should have posted... I DO MOT HAVE THE BUMPER ON YET BECAUSE OF OTHER PROJECTS BY MYSELF AND THE SHOP WHO I WANT TO INSTALL IT !

AND as it will be I don't have any more picture other than the ones of the actual bumper on the ground... so I can't post anything other than what is there.

AGAIN, which is the fake that didn't load ?

You want to know the worse part, as soon as the MA house is done, it goes on the market and the remodeling starts all over again in California, go figure. LOL !

I have run into two things... one is the fit of the bumper, not what I want and I am not happy with it yet; I have a local shop look at it and they said it should be a quick fix.
The second thing is packing up my MA house, getting it on the market and getting things together for a move to Southern California.

As soon as I get the bumper mounted the way I want then I will get pictures.
The way it is now it sticks out way too far.
The actual mounting was easy, everything Custom 4x4 Fab made went in perfectly, nice work.

I just don't like the way it sits and hope to fix that but time right now is for other things.

Ltr guys

Truck is in the shop have the frame modified to move the bumper back 3".
Frame is getting hit because I wanted the bumper to retain its strength.

Should pick it up tomorrow pictures will come then.

Still need to get it sand blasted and painted but you will get the idea.

I do not have access to a computer to download pics or upload to Photobucket so I can't add them just yet.

I had the mounting system cut to bring the front bumper in about 2.5".
Less of the bumper is just hanging out there.
Had the end cut to the shape of the wheel wells, doesn't look bad.

After I return from MA, I hope to remove the bumper and have it sandblasted then I can prime and paint it.

I hope to have the computer setup by then at my daughter's and can load some pictures.

After painting I need to adjust the lower portion of the grille some, need space for the bumper and the winch.

Well let's see... Bumper was on, didn't like I the look, took it off modified the frame to bring the bumper back some, approximately 3".

Problem is no pictures, any pictures I have are on the camera mem card and I only have an iPad that I can't download to.

Got the house in MA cleaned up, on the market, moved all our stuff to CA and now we are remodeling the house in SoCal.
All of my time has been taken up with moving.

I recently purchased an Anvil, 100 lbs, small but useful.
Can't post pictures directly from the iPad, need to upload to Photo Bucket if I can.

Sorry guys, no pics.

I know, I know...
