what do you guys do with this?


I trimmed the bumper but the mount that the OE bumper side bolts to may be a problem. I don't think cutting it off is such a hot idea since it is the only structure holding that corner of the fender together.

I cut the OE mount off, made a new one with 1/4" stock welded it on. Then drilled through the new mount/bumper, and ran 3/8" bolts through it.Let me know if you want pics.

Hmm, I just cut all that shit off- if it was holding something it wasn't holding it good, down at a V like that?

Cut it off.............it was mainly for the OE bumper bracket...........which obviously you no longer have! ;)

I drilled a 1/4" hole through the core support and bolted the inner fender to the core support after I lopped off that hunk.

No, its behind the side-end of your new bumper.


See that rivet in the hangy down thing towards the bottom/front of the fender? Its attached to that.

pics would be great. It just started poring outside so I can't go out and look at it with all these suggestions in mind :( At first glance it seemed it was supporting something other than just the OE bumper wings but I guess I was seeing things :confused:

I was thinking that considering you can kick the side of a stock bumper and bend those pieces all to shit, then bend them back out with your hand they probably weren't doing much anyways :D
Further, I question the structural characteristics of anything that can be taken out with a cutoff wheel in 30seconds per side (both pieces).

10-4. Mine was gone once I put a bentup bumper on my shit like 3 years ago. Tires didn't hit it, I just didn't like how the piece looked :D
