SeldomSeen got a much needed face lift this week.
Sorry I didn't get many "in process" pics.

I beveled and capped the ends, then used the scrap pieces to build a couple of light mounting tabs (yeah, I know WAY overkill).

Anyhow, I have a few pics of 'The Process' and a final pic.

Here is a pic after I pulled the old front bumper off

Hi All:

At first I thought this thread was about a FJ55 wagon! ;)

The new front bumper looks great James! Not unlike the front bumper a friend & I fabbed-up for my FJ40 a few years ago.

Have a great time at Cruise Moab! :beer:

Regards,

Alan

Nice sturdy job! Plan to put a winch on it? I presume that's what the back side brackets are for.

I will put a winch on it eventually.
The back side brackets are for my lights...
I had just a couple of tabs on my old bumper, and the lights would bounce around ALOT.

Yeah, the bumper is built like a brick $hithouse.
:grinpimp:

Here is the final product,
