Thanks, I bought mine used. If you pm Gus here on the forum he can tell you where it was purchased originally. I love the difference it made in the appearance of my girl, for such a small investment.

Well I went ahead and did cut my bumper down. I really like the outcome.

Yeah you can put about 3inch extention plates to the lightbar, another guy did it and it turned out great. I am looking to do that in the near future.

BeerMan Stock rear bumper with $30 worth of stuff from Tractor Supply welded on...Obviously I don't tow with the receiver welded in their, I just use it for a basket thingy that holds my cooler and fishing junk. I had to touch up the weld as you can see because I overloaded it

Any stock bumper mods out there??

Has anyone done mods to the stock bumpers? If so, post up a pic- I'm hunting for inspiration that doesn't involve serious cash for a new one. All I have on mine is tow hooks and the removal of the milk jugs...so far...
