Default Rear Bumper Dilemma NEED HELP!!!!

New to posting so here we go....i have a 2012 ram express CC with the color matched rear bumper with the exhaust cut outs. Went through a ton of different exhaust set ups and just couldnt get the sound that i wanted. Finally last weekend, with a strong beer influence, i cut off the pipes and dumped the exhaust myself. Love the sound now. My question is should i weld the tips back on where the cutouts were or sell the bumper and just get a plain bumper with no cutouts....wanting to keep it black though. let me know what yall think

I say weld your tips back up and keep your exhaust dumped. The majority of people like the RAM because the bumper has the exhaust cut outs. If I was going to cut my exhaust I would go woth a roll pan.

I hear ya man
I have a family friend that my mom has known all her life, we have always taken all our vehicles to him, he does better than outstanding work, him and his wife have owned their own shop for like 25 years or so
It costs a shit load but its always top notch
