When I bought my 98 Blaster it had a modified stock bumper on it. It was so wide that when the tires were turned all the way and the shocks fully compressed the tires rubbed on it. I decided to modify it. I cut the points off of it. Used one of the cut off tubes to square off the ends and shorten it up. This is my second time welding. Figure it would be a good project, cause if it breaks no one is going to die. I am happy with the way it turned out. I think I am going to run this on the 04 I just got. Going to put the AC Racing one on the blaster for my boy.
