Stock front bumper trim/modification?

One of my (kinda useless) stock fog lights is fried. I debated replacing it but instead Iím considering modifying the side plastic pieces of the front bumper to trim the lower air dam and fog light area.

Similar to this: https://www.instagram.com/p/BsLp5yUj...d=hs5mm4ne7deb

But Iím thinking of cutting parallel to the ground instead of at an angle so that I donít have to trim the metal behind the bumper as well. Iíve already removed the center air dam to accommodate my tow hooks.

Anyone done something similar? Iíd love to see an example or how-to.

I did exactly what you're describing. Worked great till I eventually built all steel bumpers.

Awesome, thanks! Do you have any more (ideally closer) pics?

I've got some different angles but they're all of the whole Jeep so nothing much closer. Is there something in particular you want to see?

Was just aiming to get a closer look at where your cuts lined up.

I basically just cut the vertical portion of the end caps off. Here's a slightly different angle that might help.
