    Can you guys tell me what thickness plating is used on the winch mount? I'm trying to figure it out by looking at photos and it looks to be either 3/8" plate or thinner steel that's been bent at the edges?

    Also, do these use 1/8" steel for the skin? I'm trying to decipher the steel they used.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Question for those who have installed the SSO Slimline bumper. The instructions call for 1 inch masking tape to lay out the plastic bumper cut line. Have you been to Home Depot lately? There is no 1 inch tape! They’ve gone metric in the paint department and carry only 24 mm, which is .94 inch.

    Is that what most are using?

    Thanks.

    Yes, theres no true 1" tape. We're all using the 0.94" tape.

    I installed mine last weekend. There isn’t room for my light bar and winch control box so I ordered longer wires to relocate the box. Then I’ll spool and install the fairlead.

    Did you ever get this question answered or changed springs. Exact same thing happen with my truck. Installed bumper and winch, came down a full inch. 886 or 888 in my future. Just trying to see which is a better option for me
