Guys im looking at making a rear bumper for my zuk, and i was wondering if you guys had some pics of how you have mounted your rear bumpers. I want something tough and something that i dont have to worry about pulling apart. Granted zuks are lite but who knows how many of my friends Heeps ill have to pull out :mrgreen: .

Here was the first bumper I ever made. I used 2x4 tube stock with a reciever in the middle and the stock lights

Here is the bottom of the bumper how I attached mine. The top I tied into the body mounts and I cant find a picture.

I made brackets that I welded to either side of the frame on the back of mine. Then just welded a piece of square tubing to it.
Plenty of over lap with the brackets to make sure it's solid (and trust me, it's been tested)

Go to this link about installing a ZOR rear bumper it shows some tits up mounting. Very strong. I had a customer tow a full size pu truck with his sammi recently.
http://zuksoffroad.com/community/forums/9/ShowPost.aspx if that link doesn't work for you let me know because you have to sign in to get on the ZOR forum board. You really want to connect to those four bottom bolts and the two tub bolts. From there it is just a question of what flavor bumper your going to make.

I made 2 brackets out of 1/2" plate and bolted it to the bottom of the frame where the 2 holes are on each side. 3" schedule 40 pipe with butt weld fittings.

Thanks for the help guys, i had planned on using the two lower holes on each side,i just wanted to make sure that i had a mounting setup that wasnt going to come flying off when someone yanks on my rear bumper with a winch or just pulling.

I have seen people use the two bolts that are under the tailgate door. The bolts are recessed so you can bolt something into them and still ust the gate.
