Front Bumper Issue - Laredo

My driver side front tire always rubs the grey plastic front bumper when I turn my wheels fully. I don't have a lift or big tires or anything, it's all stock. I know my front end is sagging, as wherever it's supposed to bolt onto the frame, it's torn through the plastic.

A)the plastic pisses me off
B)would it be stupid/possible to take a front bumper from a Cherokee and put it on my GC Laredo?

I just want that ugly crap off my ride so it'll stop rubbing against the tire. Is this doable? Easy? Absurd?

You can trim the front bumper to alleviate all that. Check out the trimmed front bumper pics in my gallery.

Did you take the bumper off and cut it or just leave it on? What did you cut it with?

Cut it with a dremel. Marked it with a dremel tool. The plastic piece is really just a cover for the bumper.

Okay, borrowed a friend's Dremel, cut one corner off, Dremel died. The next door neighbor happened to have one, so I used it to do the other corner. I left the middle part covering the radiator area, and I'm happy with it. Looks pretty good. Thanks for the idea.
