To me, tube bumpers on a XJ looks like an unmade bed. You see stuff you aren't meant to see.I know its not a popular name but i have seen the tubular one thats available from rustys ........
i like it because it matches my tubular front bumper and it has the hitch. anyone seen one similar ?
I saw her at a car show in Houston. She was much smaller than I expected, actually she was BITE sized. :rofl:
I'm with you on this 10,000%. I too am very particular about the look of my Jeep, and Detours is definitely the way to go. Not cheap, but worth it.To me, tube bumpers on a XJ looks like an unmade bed. You see stuff you aren't meant to see.
That is one reason I went with DetoursUSA design. It covers all the same stuff the OEM bumper did.
Most people are not as concerned about the looks of their XJ as I am of mine.
None of the bumpers are on the website any longer. Just go to the website and use the contact us page.Who me? Well you really should go to their website. I priced mine with a tire carrier included & lights (I think) and I was almost at $700. But I'll be getting it anyway providing I don't get laid off from my job.
How much of your time did it take to build? What hourly rate would you charge if you were building it for someone else? How much training did you have in welding prio to this project? How much is the equipment you used to build the bumper?I built mine for around $100 more or less. Used some 3x5" tubing and some scrap 3/16" plate. Reciever was on an old hitch which I cut off and incorporated into the tubing.
