Custom Suzuki Samurai Front Bumper
The Suzuki Samurai has always been known to be a great little off-road vehicle. They are light weight, easily modified, and you can have a lot of fun with them. In the off-road world you see a variety of Samurai’s built in many different ways from stock to full buggy builds. We recently had the opportunity to work on a super clean samurai and we wanted to share what we built.
Casey came to us asking for a very simple and sleek front bumper for his Samurai that would provide lots of protection but be light weight and still very functional. Here is what we came up with:
The plan was to build a bumper that did not incorporate a winch mount (which would weight down the front of the vehicle) but to incorporate a front receiver so that a multi-mount winch receiver could be used if winching was necessary from the front of the vehicle. The added benefit to this option is that Casey can use his winch both from the front and the rear of the vehicle.
The design of the bumper was kept very low profile and sleek to once again reduce weight. Although the design is small and sleek it still covers and protects all of the important points on the front of the vehicle. You will notice on the top of the bumper that we incorporated space to easily access the receiver pin.
The face of the bumper was made with 7 gauge pickled in oil plate and the mounting brackets were made of ½” material. The included d-ring tabs are ¾” plate that is cut on the water jet.
As you can see the finished product is awesome looking and effectively compliments the Samurai. The bumper was coated in a gloss black powder coat after being sand blasted and prepared for powder.
