As alot of you know the rear cross frame on YJ is pretty flimsy. iI wasnt comfortable pulling from a bumper mounted to that on one of my old yj's. so now i did it again and tookk some pics. i also did my own bumper aswell.

if anyone is interested in having anything seen below done, contact me.

Nice.
?
1. How did U fasten the channel to the rear of the Jeep. I couldn't tell how. One pic looks like U welded a tab to the frame but can U clearify.
2. Is that 1/8", 1/4" channel or ....couldn't tell, looks like 1/8" from the pics.

the rear frame section is 5/16 angle i welded it to the frame rails themselves on both side, inside and out. then i ran a strap like piece of 3/16 and sort of straped the angle to the frame top and bottom. the channel is welded to the angle, and the bumper is welded to the channel.

Thanks, looks like it beefed it up pretty good.

?
Will the shackle hit the channel, in this pic it looks like it will. Are/will U be cutting a notch in it or is the pic deceiving.
