use a bench vise and jsut clamp it in then bend it either with your hands, or use a hammer.... then just use a hack saw.... the cuts might not come out perfect but theyll work

Yea, I agree thats waaay too much for something like that. But I did actually see one on a chevy the other day and was surprised on the quality of it, it looked pretty sturdy. My opinion for whatever it's worth is to try and make some tabs for the bumper. I made a set for myself, and with zero experience in ever doing anything like it before they turned out pretty dang good.

Hope it's OK if I dig up an old post - well it's only 3 weeks old

I just bought some lights from 4WheelParts and plan to make some light tabs like everyone has been posting about. My question is do I have to remove the bumper to install these tabs? I can't wait to get these done - I had a wicked set of lights on my last truck and want to do the same on my ranger.

Thanks,
Brandon

I couldn't get the tabs to work on my bumper Brent, but what I did do was...

I put them on where my tow hooks are & just put a lock nut over them...
