Nice job. Great choice. I recently chopped my ORFab Shorty, just outside the frame mounts.

I have the same bumper, and have thought of doing this myself, but when the trails are tight, it sure is nice being able to bump her up against a tree without much worry of tearing a fender off.

Any pics from the side?

Not trying to hi jack the thread or anything, the bumper looks great. BUT, I noticed your grille is textured blue. Is that a color match line-x job or what?

You did a great job filling in the holes; it looks really clean, now Iím back on the fence about doing this.
