Checkout my $20 CL find

While I wait and raise funds for a Nates4x4 bumper, I thought I'd play around with this one I found on CL this morning.

I think I may hack off the ends to make them slightly protrude past the frame. I'd also have them taper so the top tube is slightly longer than the bottom.

Do you think this would look alright? Any better ideas?

Or....clean it up and resell it for more to get funds for the Nate's bumper that you really want?

For now, I've chopped off the ends and cleaned it up a bit. The old, even nicer, bumper will be going on Craigslist. When I buy the Nates4x4 bumper I may be able to get more than $20 out of this one. I don't know.

Yeah that's what I've done with these bumpers in the past. Hell it's a $20 bumper so you can yank anywhere on it. I've told my wife what she can smash it up if she needs; it will give me reason to get the winch bumper I want.
