It dropped exactly an inch.

I was planning on putting in the 2.5" coil spacer lift in the front, but I got side tracked with summertime hobbies. Boating, Fishing, camping, etc...

think this looks better than the ARB and other full bumpers that i have seen.... now my question is do you have to mount a WARN Winch in the bracket or can you mount another brand

did the bilstein 5100's help equal out the drop of the front end or does it really need coils?

You could take it to your local powder coater and have them shoot it. Just a thought. Powder coating is pretty tuff when done right.

Nice set up.

It's sold in pieces: The Grill Guard, The Brush Guard, and The Winch Carrier. so if you don't like the brush guards or can't afford all at once, knock off $135 and thats about the cheapest winch mount you can get. You know Warn built this. It's really stout. Double gusseted, .25" plate, multiple frame mounting points to eliminate tweaking. Really nice R&D from Warn.
Put this on about a month ago. Last weekend we setup some half dozen good "I can't believe I'm purposely sticking my truck in here" off angle and/or uphill pulls to test it out (I was testing out the winch too!).
Only complaint is that the sprayed on enamel sucks. it almost rubs off with a gritted glove and will eventually rust. But I am and always have been planning on rhino lining it, so it really doesn't matter; to me anyway.
Sorry about the mediocre pictures. I took them about a month ago and now it's too cold and snowy to get good ones. It's not quite as shiny anymore!
