we don't get along I trust bronco members more. Plus on top of that, People have been modifying bumpers on broncos longer then rancheros.

I am avoiding all ranchero drivers online on this forum. Not trying to here from them at all. I might just try to straighten my bumper.... first i got to get the bolts off and set it up on a stand and hammer the metal out flat.

The key in things is that Bronco users have experience in the 400 engine block too so it basically renders them useless to me. I have my reasons bro.

Even when it got down to my YouTube channel i quoted Recently: All Ford ***i's are not created equally. We are different by day and night, What another Ford User does not make me "poo poo" I am Proud of my truck and they undermine my work there for, We do not get along. Guy over there (For Example) may not change his oil on time. I Frown apon people who avoid maintenance, sounds, ticks, grunts, and twirling sounds. I would literally punch my future kids in the mouth if they disrespected ford like that. I am mean as a snake too about ford. Nothing matters to me more then Ford Trucks, Making a Decent wage, and having land of my own. I live the American Dream, I hate Mitt Romney, Obama, and all of those rich politicians. I am also very politically aware (lets leave that there).

I see, well then. Maybe we could go over what it is you wanted to do with your bumper again? As i read the first post i wasn't quite sure what the idea was... Are you wanting to take off the rear bumper from the Ranch and use it for a toolbox in the back? I don't really know how that is going to work...

well i initially thought i could make a tool box and weld it on as a bumper but then again i could just fix the damage on my current bumper but it will take some hard core metal work in order to bend it back right.

That would be quite a small tool box unless it goes up vertically... I figure it all depends on how much work you want to put into it. My rear bumper also needs to be bent back into shape and the only way i can see doing that is hooking a chain onto it and then latching the chain elsewhere and slowly driving off. I don't have the tools or the skills to cut bent and re-weld a bumper... But i have a few objects i could put a tow rope on and hook it to my bumper.

This is the closest one i have, it is the right side. You can barely see that the top is pulled up a lot and the bottom bent in like it was twisted or something..

A sledge hammer would work but you will need a block of wood and about 2 layers of cloth of some sort, unless you like scratches and grooves all over it... I don't really know particulars on deadblows but i know a big heavy one would make easy work of that. The guys in the paint threads might know a bit more, i would show them and ask what kind/how big of a hammer you need to fix it
