    @Texoma, they are different, ripping the front of the 4r off right now. I'll post up pics of the reinforcement plates as soon as they're ready.

    3/16" steel.
    Shown using the stock hardware, but holes are sized to allow a half inch grade 8 bolt

    Will your brackets work if my paper-thin brackets look like this on both sides?

    I honestly don't see how these brackets help at all:confused:
    Bigger grade 8 bolts are nice but as your picture shows the factory bolts aren't the problem. Unless these are supposed to be welded in but if you can weld you can cut these yourself too...

    It laminates the thin factory metal so your pulling against 3/16th thick steel instead of 1/16th. If you've ever used your aftermarket bumper in a hard recovery you've likely bent these areas then the bumper will rub the body and squeek like hell.

    @TwistedTLM4 as long as there is still enough to weld the reinforcement plates to, which there looks to be.

    I should be able to cut the bolt tabs off where they are mangled and then weld the plates in there somehow.

    will these work with a MOB TOWN front recovery bar?? Would the MOB TOWN bar need to be drilled out for the grade 8 hard wear??

    @timinNC
    The font recovery bar will need drilled out, same drill bit that's needed for the reinforcement plates should work, or a die grinder and burr bit, whoever is installing the plates should be able to handle it easily.
