    Default cutting factory bumper pics?

    Has anyone cut there front bumper, so that they didn't have to spend money on a offroad one? If so, can you post a pic, so that I could see if it looks good?

    I know it's a YJ, but it's the factory bumper. Plus, I wanted to help out a fellow green mnt boy.

    I'm getting ready to cut my TJ front bumper and I plan on using my grinder with a 4 1/2" wafer wheel. I'm going to use a square to make sure my marks are good. It should look something like rroadkill's.

    A chop saw works wonders. I have done several that way YJ's and TJ's. Take some flat bar and cap the ends and it will look clean.

    Did mine with an electric 4 1/2 inch angle grinder. I was surprised how easy it was.
