Dan i want the firberglass on the back NOT the front, but now that i look at the picture it doesn't really look all that bad I guess. its actually sitting pretty nice and when i drop the front 2" it will rotate it where i want it 100% I believe so anyway's. LOL

Not for a daily bro. At least in my opinion.
Too much frame tweaking, gas tank spiltting, fender crunching, trunklid folding possibility without something stiff back there for gramps to bump into at the stoplight.

On the other hand, you could pull the 75 lbs of inner bracing out and trim away about half of it as long as your year bumper has some girth to it.

yea a front bumper is not as important as the rear, you dont plan on hitting anyone but the moron behind you is another story.

pull the bumper off and cut away all of the inner bracing that you don't need- just leave enough to mount the bumper to the shocks.
i did this to the front of my monte, and i threw away about 50 pounds of 1/8" steel. the bumper is still heavy, but not nearly as heavy.
if i ever find a good rear bumper, i'm gonna do the same back there, too.

People driving new cars hate our bumpers for another reason, their puny plastic junk will not hold up when hit by a 74 Chevelle. JB
