'81 Bumper Width
« on: March 26, 2013, 12:25:28 PM »
   What is the bumper width on the 81 sx4 and Kammback? I'm at work and not had time to measure but I found a bumper from a Wrangler X that looks really nice. I think I can make an adapter for it but I need to call on it if I can get an educated member to help me out.

Have some spare spirit bumpers in the shed, pretty sure they are the same as sx4

Measure 59 1/4 inches across the top end to end

Great to hear.. I don't fab work like eaglefreek did but the bumper may be a good way to go to cleaning up the front of mine. Figure some added to that bumper you measured for end cap coverage..

Thinking maybe a Wrangler OEM front bumper may be a nice look any thoughts?
