Homemade Shorty Bumper:
 
Under the advice of Cowboyup94, I decided to shorten my factory bumper on my TJ after it had gotten bent beyond repair.

All you NEED to do this is a hand held saw with a metal cutting blade... but some leftover bondo and a can of rusto bedliner spray makes it look better.

It took me about 2 hours of strenuous hard work (an inch at a time), but I was able to cut through the bumper. Just keep going and get your line straight. Cut just to the outside of the bolts beside the square supports. If you want it to look more like it belongs there, mount the bumper back in, and hit the corners with some bondo. 120 grit sand them smooth, then scuff the whole thing up and hit it with a can of bedliner spray (I have duplicolor roll on in the picture, but if I could go back and do it again, I'd use rustoleum bedliner spray)

Good lord do yourself a favor and get an angle grinder!

This is the first mod I do to my jeeps too.

Well then it wouldn't be quite as cheap of a trick then would it... but really, I have no excuse not to have an angle grinder... that and a welder, oh the possibilities would be endless... but hey, if you can do it with everyday hand tools why not!
