    Here is a pic of modified front bumper. This is what happens when you have too much beer and a cutting torch handy. It gets alot of attention from non-wheelers... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    Oh, and yes...that is plumbers tape holding my headlight in...

    It was actually cut off by a drunk friend w/ a torch. I drew a line for him to cut on and he went to town while I was installing my rear suspension!! I love it!!

    yeah, im not a fan of tube bumpers... as far as protection goes, I hit a tree hard enough w/ that front corner that you are looking at to knock the headlight and bucket out of the truck and the bumper still looks like you see it in the pic!
