Removing the bumper may not be required for all these but it sure makes it easier;Toyoland66 said:Think about it, when do you ever need to remove your bumper?
Plus if it is welded it will help slightly with frame stiffness
Mine is bolted with brackets right now, but when i redo it, i will weld it to the frame

Do yourself a favor. Design some well made brackets and bolt the sucker on. The whole "weld it!" mentality can get a little out of hand, especially as your vehicle requirements change.
PS- I pulled my bumper all the time once I got it in place. Shoehorning a V8 in and out is much easier if there isn't any sort of obstruction in your way.

making a STRONG quality type bumper there will be need to replace it ever.
And yes, a quality type bumper will stiffin up the twisting of the frame.
