    Anybody out there completely bored out of their mind this Saturday wanna come over and help put this 110 pound bumper on my truck? I live in the central Phoenix area.

    I don't think I can lift it and put the bolts in at the same time....

    Or maybe someone has a suggestion on on how to do it by myself w/o dieing.

    I might be able to stack it on something. I don't know if I have anything strong enough to support that weight. Getting the height even close will be hard.

    Let's be honest... you really only care about your own rig.
    Jason, I'd be happy to help. Would you be willing to bring it over to my house? I'm not working, but I have a bunch of little shit I have to get done in the yard and whatnot, but I'm happy to assist. Plus we can compare it to mine that's already installed in case there's an issue. I have all the tools we need to make trims and adjustments, too.

    P.S. - I live in northwest Peoria, like 67th Ave and Happy Valley.

    If you got the tools I am more then willing to head over to help lift the bumper. central phoenix is ten minutes from my house give or take.

    Already got it done, ended up scoring Jason's black 2012 bumper to replace my dented and faded 2005. Truck looks good, took us all of 20 minutes to do both.

    I still find it odd that an OEM style replacement doesn utilize the oem bulb, harness, and mounts....
