Wow nice bumpers. Is that the factory bumper or is that a custom job too?

Yeah those are rather nice looking. I personally don't like drilling holes in my frame, but none the less those do look nice.

thanks! i was torn between drilling the holes and putting them on or welding them directly to the frame, i opted for the drilling because if i ever need to take them off for any reason i wont need to grind them off and weld them back on
