    Looking for some front and rear bumper suggestions. I like a heavy look.....any ideas? Pictures if you have them please.
     
  2. If it's good enough for a Camaro clip, why not a Camaro bumper? Or Corvette.

    How about Desoto? Lot of 50 Mercs use them. Definitely heavier looking than stock.
