Yes I really liked int3rc3ptor's. Did use same because the bottom is at a little angle and it looks better if i use a bigger peice. I will post better pictures when I have it painted.

Yea my stock bumper was ugly. If you also notice that all the better looking trucks do not have stock bumpers. No offence

None taken. And yours doesn't look as good as any said trucks yet to warrant removing the bumper IMO. I see a pretty stock looking truck.

It's your truck,so do what you want with it.

So because his truck is stock, he should leave the rear bumper.

Mike, just shut up.

Incorporate the hitch, throw on some clevis', and you got yourself a pretty mean looking bumper.

yea what he said^^^^^
if you plan on wheelin it hard tho you may want a little more protection for the corners another member made a very similar bumper and hit the lower corner of the bed and it bent the whole bed side

looks good tho kinda a cross between a bumper and a roll pan

You can see that it sticks out a little bit compared to the bed sides (probably what, inch, inch and a half?). I think he's pretty well protected with a tube bumper for low impact accidents from the rear.
