    Look behind the bumper, theres a span of about 6-8" (guessing) where there are little indentations in the err frame.

    I mean if you really want to bash shit I'd probably plate those whole sections... they are there for safety though.

    Enough modifications to piss the wife off!!
    I agree Max.....beyond the center of the bumper, the outer wings have very little bracing. Although, I hit the little Honda in this area & the bumper did not bend (low speed collision....around 20mph), I could see where these outer ends of the bumper are NOT as beefy as the center.

    Below is my bumper & you should see her car.....1/3 of the quarter panel/trunk was crushed up like an aluminum can.
