Rear Bumper Cut

What do you guys think.....I'm trying to get some opinions. I just put my flares on and I didn't like hoew the rear bumper looked with the front part sticking past the back part of the flare. So as anyone alse would have done took my saw and grinder out and cut about 6" off. I think it looks better but do you think I should cut it at more of an angle going from the top to bottom??

I figured I would cut just a little to start...easier to take a little off than to add it back on....anyway what do you all think....leave it or cut more.

First pic is what it used to look like....

Nice! As soon as I get some time I'm cutting mine almost to the tow hooks. Right at the first angle. I already pre cut the inner support for the tire carrier when I installed the bumper.

I'd say to tape it off at an angle following the line of the bumper as a preview.


Sent from my mind using telekynesis!

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...
