I cut off that metal support. Heated the part of the fram that was bent (only part when it actually connects to that support was bent on mine) straightened it out. And built a bumper that slips into that frame. But i dont know if the damage is that extensive.

I don't have those skills or tools. I'm just starting out and I don't know anything.

I ended up just installing the passenger side front tow hook.

Missing hardware, mismatched hardware...


I suck.
MNo way man. No way to really see some of that **** till you take it apart. As far as repairing the unibody thats kinda tough. Use some heat and a hammer. Maybe you can persuade it if its not too bad?

This is what mine looked like after i removed that support. Where the frame comes out (where it used to connect to the factory bumper support) on the drivers side was bent. We heated it. And beat it as straightened it as well as we could. I forgot i cant post a picture yet..
