why?

They're already 1/4" carbon steel.


EDIT: scratch that. I understand now, Joe. You're lookin' for a set so you can fab a beefier set for some reason.

Shane, for some reason my brackets suck. You step on the rear bumper and it moves up and down. You can move it up and down by hand. All the bolts have been tightened and retightened and nothing

That doesn't make sense what so ever. if everythings tightened down, it should'nt move at all. I question rust issues since you're in ohio... major rust on the inside of the bumper? how about where the brackets bolt to the frame. the BL brackets can't be "crappy". If installed and tightened, it won't be loosey goosey like you discribe.

I know my frame is badly rusted neither is my bumper. I will have to look at it some more to figure out exactly why it is so loose
