Saw this on a Teraflex video and kind of liked it. Has anyone tried this? Here's a random pic I found. I'm thinking if sprayed with some bed liner or something it could look pretty good.
It would be easy to mount a couple of D-rings to the tow hooks and frame now.Well now, if those jive hooks were removed, and those two big nipples relaxed in some way...
This could be a cheap mod fad just waiting to explode on the scene...
Give it try, couldn't hurt, stock bumpers have a monetary value of what ? $15 dollars ?
Undo the 8 nuts holding the tow hooks on and the whole assembly comes off (remember to unplug the fog lights first). You can see towards the ends the 2 each side holes on the part that is dimpled out. The plastic skin is pretty much useless for protection and the beam is flimsy. The cans are there as a "first strike" mentality, meaning to give a crumple zone if the force is less than enough to get to the frame.I think i'm liking it! How do you peel off the shell?
Most likely I'll go that route. Just need to get the confidence up to cut on the stock bumper. It's always fun to explain to people *cough*wife*cough* who don't get the whole mod thing why you're "ruining/changing" a newer vehicle.Here is an interesting option if you want to do something but don't want to do the full naked thing.
