I have before.

My last rear bumper was welded on. I ussually bolt mine on and then add a few tacks to it just to make sure it stays there. I've broken broken bolts before. :?

i have welded all the bumpers on my trucks just like sandman there does with one exception... my yota... lol... the bolts worked loose, and they were a mite sticky and i couldn't get em tight, so I was a lazy ass and just ran a couple of beads no it... well... in the midst of hauling a load of trash in my trailer, the beads broke.... then the bolts popped with the shock, and the trailer made its own way across a field with my bumper! :deal:

I have done both also but everytime I weld one on it seems like I need to get to something that would have been alot easier to get to if I had bolted it on. So I stick to bolting them on now. I always weld in reinforcements to bolt the bumper too though :rotfl: :rotfl:

I believe people here are reffering to aftermarket bumpers. I dont think there would be much point in welding up a stock setup. It has its pros on cons.

You have a pic of your bumper setup? you might have to have a local weld shop build some type of angle bracket so you can go from the frame to the bumper.
