Yea I just removed my oem bumper and got it straightened up from the guys at the metal shop where I work. Also got some new grade 8 bolts and lock washers to bolt it back on to the frame. I am going to take a piece of 1/4" angle that's the same length as the bumper, drill holes identical to the bumpers tow mount holes, and just run it between the bumper and the tow mounts. Should give substantial additional strength as far as bending the bumper inward or outward goes, which I would be too concerned about either way.
