Looking for general info on bumpers for Baja Bugs. I just bought a 1968 Baja that has no bumpers and want to fit it out so as not to damage the engine. So my questions run along the lines of... Are there different brands and if so does one stand out as best? Do they all mount the same (and universally)? Do I need a "heavy duty" type or is that just extra weight? Are they all skid plate compatable? Thanks for any info you can give me.

Whatever bumpers you choose you will have to do some fabricating to get them to fit. There are basically two ways to mount rear bumpers, shock mount and firewall mount. I like the firewall mount better (they're stronger) but you will have to fab up some reinforcements. The shock mount bumpers mount to the top of the rear shocks, and are easier to install, but because they crimp the tube flat to make to mount to the shock bolt they tend to break.

Besides mounting points there are double and single tube bumpers. Simply put more material=more strength=more weight. I wouldn't worry about weight, the added strength outweighs (pun intended) any speed gains that you might get from the ten to fifteen pounds that you would save.

Every ting is skid plate compatible as long as you weld!!!
