End cap removal

I am looking for pictures of someone's bumpers with the end caps removed. I want to see what it looks like.

Please and thank you

Are you talking about cutting a stock bumper or removing the whole cover? There aren't end caps. You have to take a saw to it.

You should check out the VDP end caps, Rough Country Makes them as well.

Basically you cut the bumper and then put the new end caps on for a much cleaner look... I just did the VDP caps on mine and I am very happy with it.

Also recommend removing the (useless) air dam and adding Daystar hood straps. Makes a world of difference in appearance.

Can the caps be used on the rear bumper as well? Quadratec only showed pics of the front bumper.
