I said YOLO and ordered a Weld-It-Yourself bumper kit! (Surprisingly Cheap!)

Yeah that bumber does intrude a ways into the fender well... did the OP mess up with the frame-to-bumper mounts?

Looks great otherwise.

Thanks!

I donít have pics right now, but it only intrudes about 0.5Ē into the wheel well and doesnít come close to rubbing. Itís annoying that itís like that, but I was just really eager to get it done. I really do think the brackets were just too short, and since I had already built most of the bumper before I decided to switch the brackets, I couldnít make adjustments.

Iím going to leave it how it is for now... Next time I happen to have the bumper off iíll grind the holes in the bracket a bit so I can scoot it forward a quarter inch or so.

If I ever upgrade to bigger wheels i can just hack ‘em off and cap ‘em off. For now, not a problem

I think the other pic was a bit of an optical illusion because the bumper comes out wider than the fenders
