    has anyone used the cool fj60 rear bumper from iron pig?
    seems like a good price, considering what my present chrome bumper
    WITH endcaps can probably fetch on e-bay, it might be worth the money.
    any thoughts?

    I had to reread this,thought you were using a Pig bumper on a 60 :confused:

    Why would you need end caps on that bumper from Iron Pig? Just Curious. Great looking bumper.

    The cool bumper from Iron Pig?:

    If not and an 55 bumper is desired, I think the bumper mounts are more narrow then that of a 60... actually, the bumper is too, 60s have a fat bottom :D

    He's asking about buying an FJ60 bumper from iron pig off road, and selling his current stock bumper (with endcaps) on ebay.

    How much can you really get for the stock bumper? I really don't know.

    Lance at Iron Pig off road has a great reputation in the cruiser community. I'm sure his product is great.

    Edit: He beat me to it!

    LOL, can you tell I am half asleep. DAMN! And I drove to work? :eek:

    Ok, that bumper is bad ass... I would run it and probably just dump my stock bumper in the scrap yard to be recycled

    DAMN!!! I'd rather just make my own tire carrier rather than having a $400 dollar addition!

    I like that bumper, but I like the ARB 60 series one better. This one would be much better with some better quarter protection, like SCJO06 said.

    Does anyone have any plans with dimensions/instructions for building one they would be willing to share? That would be real helpful for those of us who have the tools/skills.

    Would that bumper fit a 62?

    Seems like it would.

    im eyeing the bumper, with an old 40 series tire carrier, somehow welded on. i have to fugure out the upper mounting. perhaps a post of some sort.
    if i do buy the bumper, and figure out what ii want, i can weldl the carrier on ( no time to make the whole bumper)
    another issue is the tail lights. go to design it so the can bee seen, but still have clearence for the lower tailgate.
    gotta get some measurments

    So I guess the reason Iron Pig doesn't do front bumpers for the 60/62 is because they also sell ARB? Would be nice if they would do a front bumper, too....
