    I would also like to see some pictures of these. Wondering if they would go well with my AP 2+ kit.

    To answer you question they don't come back to stock bumper lines but you can add some plate to the side of the bumper to match.

    I had a bumper built by DTF^^^ and I think that was based on stock bumper lines.
    I also had a 2.5" over kit built by DTF and the 4x3 glass was perfect. Ill post some pictures when in not on mobile

    ^^^ right on those look good, and those are 3x4 mcniel fenders?

    as for making a small bumper cap, if necessary... for those who have thought of giving it a try, do you think it would it best to get a raw steel bumper and then make the caps, weld then powdercoat? Or my other idea would be to just make small caps out of tin and and pop rivet them on or something?
