I like that bumper, it will look good on your truck. I like how it retains the tow hooks.

Ouch. If you don't want your foglights after you change your bumper, let me know. Maybe we could work something out.

i'll keep that in mind. im going to price out how much it will be to build something different then a tube bumper where i can keep my fogs, but if not, you're at the top of the list. the fog light in the pic only has a little scratch on it from the accident. so thats good.

That is a nice bumper. It's a lot like what I want eventually only with fog light mounts.
