    If I bought one of these bumpers do you think it could be fit to my Tundra? I was thinking of finding some one to cut out the hitch and then weld in extensions? Is it practical or realistic? Suggestions?

    If that is a good bumper the tubing is probably dom. I wouldn't want to cut a single piece of tubing up, it will be weak in the middle. If you can find someone to weld it really well and get everything straight it is doable.
    Another option is find someone to custom make one about like that.

    Not a fabricator.... but you're far better off finding a bumper that's specifically designed for your Tundra.

    Cutting & hacking up something to *make it fit* will only cost much more money then you could've spent buying an aftermarket bumper. Besides that - if the job isn't done right, it'll look like shit and you're stuck with it.

    Is that a rear bumper? Or a front bumper?

    If anything.... That bumper is LAME. It is NOT strong enough to be a receiver hitch!!!!!!
