Re: bumper questions ?
you defniintely want to lop off the ends of that stupid stock bumper mount thing. A lot of different things bolt into those four holes, some of them conflict with each other, so plan ahead.
For instance, when I had the Calmini Shackle reverse, the front towers or "fangs" used those holes. The smittybuilt front bumper i have at the moment also wanted those holes, so I had to BFH the bumper mounts to get them to accomodate the extra width of the spring mount towers over the holes.
I took off the s/r and the little bumpstoppy things that the folding shackles in the front sit against with my new YJ and missing link setup also want those holes.
Some bumpers and some suspension components conflict because of the popularity of those holes. It is best to do some research to figure out if whatever you are planning will work.
