Defender bumper mystery

Recommended Posts

I wonder if anyone can shed any light on the construction of my front bumper which is of different construction from others I have seen. The channel section is the same but some box section is welded inside this as well as some plates?

Military bumpers have box section between the chassis rails. The outer sections are the same as standard bumpers, but they have flag holders. The centre of the bumper has a towing pin.

Sound familiar?

Not quite, no centre pin, no flag holders. Here are pics

I have to agree with red90 that does indeed look like the previous owners done it as the normal land rover bumpers are'nt known for they're strength I got hold of one similar to that ages ago off a mate who tried to strengthen it up-but I managed to bend it the first time out :rolleyes:
