Well I completely disassembled the whole front bumper, and pulled that piece of steel, or pieces welded together, and that was the sorriest work I have ever seen. The pieces were only welded on one side and the joints bend like a piece of wire....this thing would be completely worthless in a frontal hit. It is also really rusty, and getting parts around it rusty, so I am just going to leave it out. This will also realign my bumper. That piece of hard plastic or fiberglass, whatever they use from the factory is some pretty stout stuff, so I don't feel worried about leaving that piece of steel out. This was just the front bumper...now for the back!
