Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

JK bumper install

Any special projects involving a decent amount of fab work (bumpers, sliders, roof racks, etc)

I just finished installing a Smittybilt XRC bumper for a JK jeep on my Envoy. I was going to build my own but just don't have much time to work on the envoy lately. So I saw Teebes put a JK bumper on his trailblazer and it fit pretty well. My neighbor jeep buddy told me Smittybilt was closing out their xrc gen 1 bumpers for 299. I took the measurement of the xrc bumper and made a scale drawing. I transferred the dimensions to the envoy and it looked to be a decent fit. I ordered one up and started the fitting. I fabbed the mounting brackets from 3/16 steel. They are welded to the frame horns and have a Jeep jk bumper mount pattern. The bottom of the bumper is also bolted to the frame horns with 5/8 hardware. Not bad for a few hours work.

Not bad at all.
