Installed my new bumper

Got my All Pro bumper in today and got it installed!

In case you forgot what my truck looked like before :


Here's the bumper assembled... Silver07taco, you were right - not all the holes line up that great and it has to be manhandled to make them fit. In fact, there were two bolts that I couldn't even get close!








Installed before the lights




Now, with the lights. I just used a couple of the Hellas I had on the brush guard for now, but I plan to get some 8" IPFs.




I was actually a little amazed at how many parts had to come off that won't go back on... But there is one that I was wondering about...


This is some sort of bracket and it has the threaded holes for the skid plate. I couldn't get the bumper to fit properly with these and the skid plates on so I removed them. They don't appear to do much other than provide a mounting place for the skid plate and protect the sway bar. Can someone shed some light for me??

Nicely put!

I mentioned this somewhere else before, but since I went wheelin with Silverback in Texas, I'm much less interested in making it look good - now want to make it wheel good!

The winch and full skids should be done in the next month or so....

Took about three hours from start to finish. Wasn't too difficult, but there were no instructions (not like I need them ) but a couple of things had to be figured out.

Silverback recommended the Warn 8000 and I think I'm going to go with that one. I think it will do everything I need it to do and it's a Warn so it's dependable.
