Jk front bumper mod

Hey check out this low budget modified stock bumper. This is the real bumper under the plastic cover, perfect foundation for the low cost mod.

When you made this, did you have to cut off the place where the fog lights are and remake a place for them? Or was there just 2 holes there? Looks good btw.

I'm wondering sorta the same thing; I've ripped all the plastic out, but the pass-thru cutouts for the fogs are oblong and not a direct fit. OP: did you fab those brackets yourself? If so, you've likely been dope for life; otherwise--you're dope AF for this mod anyway--where did you by them?

I guess that just proves I'm really old.

looks good...I give it two thumbs up! I have seen similar things done with the rear bumper as well. In my opinion just about anything is better than the stock plastic bumpers....

Add me to the "looks awesome/what did you actually have to modify?" list. Nice work.
