    What kind of front bumper would yall suggest. I'am looking for a bad a** one really big and strong and scary looking. I was even thinking about a snowplow for the front so it would just deflect any cars trying to hit me J/k.

    Re: Stronger front

    If you're prone to hitting things I suggest you make a bumper from a 6" piece of thick walled steel pipe. 8-10" pipe is not out of the question either.

    I'm sure boxing the frame would make it stronger. I'd consider it. I did. I figure it's not worth the time. I'm just going to do my frame swap and not wreck my truck again.

    Check out the bumpers I sell. They will definately hold up.

    Tim,
    I build quality parts that I know will work. Try some of the other manufactures prices if you think mine are scary!
