Picked up a jeep bumper for 100$ on Monday. Got it sized up started removing the original mounting brackets and notched the rear fenders so the bumper can slide underneath. It's roughed out for now but will be cleaned up after final dry fit. It's still a ways away from done but I'm committed now and there's no going back.

Threw in a picture I mocked up with my phone so you can see how it will look.

Just about have the fitment worked out, debating weather I trim 1/2" off the bottom of the bumper so it sits flush with the frame support. As is it hangs down just a tad and I don't want it to get caught on anything. Next is to fab new brackets and bolt it down then finish the trim all the way to the wheel wells. I'm on the fence about removing my hitch mount and putting it on when I need it. After it's bolted up and fitted I'm going to take it off and clean up the metal tape it prep and

He's committed now. Don't think I have the intestinal fortitude to hack up my quarters, but I give him props for yanking out the SawZAll and having at it.

Right! The moment I made the very 1st cut I was losing my mind. The moment I made that 1st cut I thought of Kristin Beck on the Joe rogan show Where they talked about cementing the fingernails on lolAs soon as I put the cutting wheel to it to it that was it it was full send there's no doing it half way lol. It will look much better as soon as I get the tubing put on.

If MOOR is a local, then that means you're in Southern Utah. I'm in Soutern Utah, too. What are the odds of that?

Also, you've got balls of steel for cutting up your truck. My truck is paid off, but even I wouldn't feel comfortable cutting into it. My tip my hat to you good sir.

I'm northen in tooele area but anything around 3 hours is local for Matt lol I know quite a few people that have worked closely with him and even more that ride with his group often. Utah is a cool place, You can pretty much get any type of off roading you are interested in finding out here It is the mecca of outdoor sports.

You definitely have your big boy pants on. Kudos.

I could see myself doing this now that my truck is 11 years old. 10 years ago - no chance. Looking forward to seeing the final product.

I'm pretty hard on things, I figured I could sacrifice a little on the bottom and gain clearance and wrap it in rock rails and the rest will last longer. Ultimately it will end up a flat bed, it's my grocery getting work truck and paid off. Gonna run it till I can't rebuild it any more then drop a titan engine in it lol
