frame extension pieces for Addicted Offroad front bumper

I've emailed Scotty from AO already, but I was wondering if anybody knew or had pics of where these weld to and exactly what I need to cut off from the frame? 04 Tacoma.
Thanks.

Good luck with a answer from email. I emailed them 2 times asking very politely about leads times, never got any kind of response!

With mine the lead time was pretty much once you order it it's built and shipped within 2 days and Scotty is always willing to help and answered every email and phonecall I gave him!

As for where to weld, idk about the "frame extensions" but I pretty much took the stock bumper off and got down to bare frame ends where the crush cans bolt to then used a sledge hammer to knock the new bumpers included crossmember onto the frame ends and used a level to be sure it wasn't crooked for whatever reason then tacked it up along to sides, bottom and top then bolted the bumper to the new crossmember... Iirc John(45acp) had his done at the AOR shop and when it was said and done the bumper stuck out 4.5" from the face of the grill and mine is 3.5".

All in all I'm very satisfied with my bumper choice all though mines changed quite a bit... Also depending on if you want to see the stinger or not the way it comes stock per say is barely visible over the hood and I ended up cutting it off and making a new wider stinger that was about 2" higher but that's just personal preference on wanting to be able to see it and it being wider to house my 21" light bar

Did you hack the ends off or just cut the ears off(where the bolts are) enough to slide the new crossmember over top? I'm really surprised that I cant find any pics here or online about this. I do much better with pics!
Thanks.

Got pics of the frame extensions? I'm not sure what exactly it is you're working with. I don't think I saw anything like that on the AO site.

Yeah, my truck was the first one Scotty came across with the short frame issue. He ended up making a new crossmember with square tubing and gusseted/welded the shit out of it.

Before going to the AO shop with the old crossmember

Thanks 45acp. I was hoping that you might chime in. I can send you some pics tonight of what he sent me. Right now my truck looks just like yours in the pic with your bumper off. Actually i stuck the little sub-bumper back on for some protection until I figure out exactly what i need to hack off.
Basically, though, he sent me 4 approx 2" long rectangular pieces. 2 are thinner steel than the others. I got the bumper about a month ago, and now im in a hurry to get it on before i go to WV on a hunting trip.

Dennis, either those emails got blocked some how or they never got to me. I always email everyone back ASAP. But to answer the question, we are usually at a 2-3 week turn time.
