Bumper questions

I want to trim down the stock front bumper a little bit, can i do this with a sawzall or do i need a cuttoff wheel or something stronger. Also the tube that goes behind the bumper would that make an reliable recovery point if I ran some chain through it?

Either, or... I've cut alot of junk with a sawzall. BTW, the top of the bumper, @ each end of the front tube, has two threaded holes where U can mount a 10,000 lb tow hook on either side, if that helps.

ok thanks. i know about those holes for mounting tow hooks but im in college and the pockets are a little on the empty side. I wanted to put recovery points on the rear bumper first since the last time i got stuck i winched out on the bumperettes and I was just wondering if the bumper tube would work untill i got ones for the front.

i dont like the way it looks... i like the shorty bumpers better and i read that when your wheels are at full turn your bumper shouldnt extend past the face of the wheel for better turning capabilities.... but mostly for looks
