i had my winch plate plus my grill guard from olympic 4x4, stock fog lights and hella lights all mounted on my stock bumper, i had to do some cutting and welding, but 5 hours later it looked pretty good.

Osmosiz, nice. Ever think about Painting you Headlight Bezels Black. I have a silver/Gray jeep too and will be painting mine when the weather gets nicer out.

yes you can see some stutter cuts in the second pic, I plan on having it bump into rocks anyway, it's not a big deal.

30 minutes with a sawzall, grinding wheel, and some spray paint. I think the front bumpers look good chopped, no need for an aftermarket bumper. Save weight and just get a brush guard/winch (if need be, that's my plan)

Question: Can you take those rubber bumper guard things off? I'd like to have a bumper that's flat across the front.

I picked up those molded rubber end caps for mine.



I had them on the front bumper but I ditched it to fab up my own.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

I just did it today, but you have to remove the bumper, there's two bolts per rubber thing.

Remove the entire bumper. Two 55 Torx bits on top on each side, one 55 Torx bit on the bottom of each side.

Then you'll see four small bolts on the inside of the bumper, two on each side. Remove, and then replace the front bumper back.
