    Yeah when i first ordered it i had my doubts being its a trail queer bumper, but when i got it i was impressed, the welds, the metal, the design is pretty baller. and for 3 bills it was worth the money.

    Good question. I was afraid of clogging up the radiator's ability to transfer heat so I left it alone. Now, after researching about this a bit more, it seems like it's perfectly safe to shoot a couple of lights coats on it with no ill affects.

    Thanks Rob,

    Jerry just finished powder coating it. And my brother picked it up but took it to Sac. And it's now at my parents in Tracy waiting to get picked up.

    Do you have any rubbing with your wheel/tire setup?

    Yes, I have rubbing in front at full turn (tire on frame) and at the rear when the tire is stuffed (tire to fender)

    Got my bumper back, freshly powder coated from BAMF, and installed.

    I couldn't get one bolt in. Think it will be a problem?

    If you winch off of it, then yes, definitely you need to get that bolt in and also get some plates to tie it down farther down the frame. (unless you have some already)

    Bumper looks really good though.

    Thanks Matt, I will definitely be using this to winch off of. Not sure about the the plates though. I'll look into that.

    Would you recommend getting a new bolt?

    Thanks. I just saw your truck. It's definitely a great build. Can't wait to see the sliders. I just ordered a pair of BAMF sliders myself. Hopefully get those soon.

    Does it not line up or something? You need all the strength you can get if you're going to be winching from the bumper. Call / PM JLee (B.A.M.F) who is a vendor on here about the bumper brackets. He should be able to help you out if you give him some pictures and/or measurements of what you need.

    These are mine from B.A.M.F to give you an idea of what they look like if you've never seen them before.

    The thread seems to be damaged.


    I'll definitely talk to JLee about the brackets thanks.
