Hiya

Does anyone know will an Evo front and/or rear bumper be fitted onto a Colt CJ? If so, does it have to be from a certain Evo, and does it have to be modified at all to fit on?

it needs a hell of alot of modification i think, for it to line up with the wings. the only examples ive seen that look good are two evo colts on here, one with an evo 9 front and rear, and one with a makkinen front

Do you know who they are on here who have them? I think they make the Colt look really mean, but don't like the holes where the fog lights on the Evo are supposed to be, I think.

A full Evo front end would probably be easier.

doors may not line up and you'd have to end up doing the half of each arch thing

You would, but getting things to line up after that would be a walk in the park compared to messing around trying to get an Evo bumper to fit the shape of a standard CJ.

Both Andy & George have full Evo front ends.

Go for Evo 4 Front end though, the arches aint as wide so will be more suited for the colt geometry. Also the wings are made from Aluminium on the 5/6 so you cannot weld to them. as the evo 4 wings are steel, you can weld the front of your colt wing if you wish for it to follow the shaping of the colt doors :)

You do find fiberglass "Evo" bumpers for the CJ from time to time, but I still think a full Evo front end would be best.

It's one of those where it's each to their own.
