KJ bumper built from stock

Just had a bright idea(get them once in a while). If I can get a stock '06 front and/or rear bumper from another KJ and strip off all the plastic, could I build on that to make a better bumber similar to an ARB. Just thought it would have the correct mounts, etc and would be easier to do it than starting from scratch. Or is the original part not strong to build on? Any thoughts would be welcome

Ditch the origional. You want a solid base to start on and the factory one just does not have the strength.

The problem is-

For the 2006, ARB and others do not make a front bumper that does not require taking a sawzall to the front end. Some people do not want to butcher the front of their 2006.
