Having always been a fan of plate type bumpers I think your truck looks really good now, it is kind of a shame that a company as big as allpro can't get the bolt holes lined up a little better though and atleast include install instructions with their product.

So when you get the winch installed are you going wire or synthetic rope?

Thanks! At first, I wasn't a fan of these. Just not the look I was going for. However, the look has really grown on me over the past couple of months, but more importantly, it's lighter and provides better front end clearance than most of the other bumpers out there. And, it's cheaper!!

I'm new to winching (and offroading for that matter) so I have no experience with either, but I've heard that synthetic rope is lighter and safer than the normal cable, so that's what I had planned to get. Can you make any recommendations?

I was waiting for you to weigh in! Thanks for the tip...

So, do I just take an angle grinder to the edges that dropped down (causing the fitment issue) to make it clear? And while I'm waiting for the Bud Builts, can the factory skid plate stay on? I don't see how...

No offense but I personally liked the look before. I like it now too, but I think it looked better before.

What kind are you thinking you are going to get? I can see why you switched now. You need a bumper like that in order run a winch. Congrats. Keep us updated with those pictures.

Truck looks awesome. Good choice on the winch. The only problem I've ever had with my warn winch was that it made me a little too confident a time or two and even with the winch had to dig & stack a little, but thats what wheelin is all about right.
