Damaged Bumper

Up front we’d add a lightweight winch with synthetic rope from MasterPull, but otherwise we’d probably just remove or trim the stock bumper and beat on the stock rear until it failed. As for fender flares and tire clearance, there are a ton of aftermarket options, but we’d keep the stock plastic and get after it with a sharp box cutter. Trim the flares to fit and then massage the sheetmetal. Finally, we’d limit uptravel as needed to keep the 33s from contacting anything on the body or suspension.
