Some new pics: Bumper Finished!

Heres a couple shots with the new bumper finally bolted on. Still need a winch.

Crap lighting, but you get the idea of what it looks like. Its completely bolt on, the only welding on the frame is the brackets for the skid plate on the cross member. Bumper was made by BTF Fab in Upland CA.

Looks good.

IMO, you need some more coverage, though. It's a tad too exposed for my taste.

less places for mud to get clogged up. it protects the front end 110% better than the stock bumper/valance. the skid goes all the way down to the cross member, completely covering the radiator.

You shouldn't have any sort of mud get clotted even in a factory front bumper, unless you are spinning around backwards. And with the angles on that front bumper, even if you did have some extra plating on there, mud wouldn't really stick that much.

Regardless of what I think, though, I like it, you like it, the latter is all that matters, right?

I agree. I'd want more coverage. It does look good though.

Looks really good! I'd buy a can of cheapo black spray paint and paint that front crossmember and maybe a few other little things, it would probably make it look better (not that it looks bad at all lol).
