I'll qualify this by first saying that I'm not trying start a debate on body lifts versues suspension lifts. I just wanted to show what I did for my bumper for strength to compensate for the body lift;

I used an old frame and cut the front horns off as donors, I made use of the bead blaster at work and painted them:



This is what I want to cut so it will fit on my frame:



So the old bumper and cheesy bracket is removed and made ready for the surgery:




For the cut on the frame I decided to use the same angle as the horn:



Transfered the lines to the frame, the filter is for the transmission:




Checked twice and then out came the cutting wheel:






Next was attaching the donor frame horns to the bumper and getting the measurements right for the next cuts:




Measured carefully and then cut the donor horns:




Tacked in place and checked again for placement:



Cut some plate to cover the gaps and tacked in:




Now for some Mig:






Now I just need to clean things up and paint the pieces and bolt the bumper back on, but I know it's not going anywhere.

Don't you know body lifts won't work and your gonna die?

Just kidding. Dude, that is a very respectable and good looking way of dealing with that. I had a 95 that had a 3" BL on it when I got it and I never liked how spongy the bumper felt.

Nice welds too.
