It's says the factory fog lights will fit with applied bracket, no bracket was included. Called BA and said not on the newer 12-13 models. So I bought some 4'' hid pro comps ffor fog light. Good choice. And pc 7'' on top of the bumper. Drilled the mounting holes about 4'' ahead of the holes the put in as the hid ballast stuck back pretty far.

im more interested in this than any other just because it retains the factory hitch as i will do a lot more towing than offroading, and there are no guarantees with anything aftermarket.

the recovery points bolt directly to the frame mount thats used to hold the bumper on, and i actually kind of like that as later on i can fabricate my own tire/cooler/whatever mount setup to bolt on/off whenever i like.


however fitment issues sound consistent. it sounds like people may be having less fitment issues recently as manufacturing may have switched facilities or processes or something, can anybody attest to that? or is there any chance mounting locations are slightly different on different truck models?

Throwing my 2-cents in the ring regarding Body Armor. I ordered the side steps. They arrived last week, installing them today I hope. When I got them though, it looked like the box was used as a sword in a sparring match between Jaegers. The ends were scuffed...not bad enough to send back - a little Rustoleum fixed that right up. I will give the benefit of the doubt and blame that on the delivery company. However, once I finished that I noticed that the rails had a slight curve to them...nothing major; I only noticed it when I was looking for other scuffs to paint. I'm hoping it won't be noticeable once installed. We'll see. I can't imagine the curve is by design!!
