It acts as the entire support for the rear bumper. I took mine off and then put it back on. It is heavy, real heavy!! You just have to use a plasma cutter to cut it all up and yet leave enough support for the rear bumper.

I ended up putting mine back to stock. I was going to put part of the front grill into the area that is filled with the flat plastic and hitch. I still may do it later, just not right now. I have too many other things going on with the TBSS right now.

The bumper would not handle even leaning on it. It would be fine for a run or 2 down the quarter but that is about. The bumper would eventually fold down from a lack of support.
