I did it, but I just left the plastic cover off after cutting the cans and ends off. To me the metal bumper underneath looks fine, at least until I get the scratch to replace it with a winch bumper.

I really like that bumper but I have to agree with some of the others. I'm not a big fan of that hoop. /

I looked on a couple other forums (not dipshits though) and couldn't track a write up down. There is one on here somewhere, I just come up empty on the key words I'm using to search.

Ask one of the Jeep Nation guys in SA, one of them has done it before, plastic welding and all.

Pain heals, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever.
