    Nice. Do you have a lift on your truck as well?

    Do you have any problems with rubbing? I'm looking into the same lift when I get my bumper.

    Bumper got here last Monday (Ben ran into some issues with his supplier). But we got it worked out! The packaging was insane.

    Started unwrapping it after work and quickly realized it wasn't an "after work / eveining project".

    Me and a buddy spent a good part of the day Friday putting it all together (we also drank a lot of beer and had some good lunch).

    Very happy with how it turned out. Only thing left is figuring out the "best way" to hook up the parking lights and blinkers.

    Next step is finding time to put on my Icon mid-travel set up, all pro expo leafs, new tires, and wheel spacers.

    Is it possible to mount a non warn winch in an ARB?

    If you have DRLs, get low watt LED replacement lights for the new AUX signal lights. Originally I didn't and my DRL unit was sensing too much resistance or drawing too much energy. It was cutting either the left or right side and eventually both lights after a while of driving with the DRLs on...

    Yes. Just be aware that you need to "spin" the casing to get the freewheel/engaged switch lined up with the hole in the top of the bumper...

    No DRL's its an 05. But my kit was missing the "clamps" to splice into the wiring. Trying to find someone that makes a "factory" connection that splices from one wire to two. even with the fogs got a new connector online to avoid cutting into my factory harness.

    Any BA15S base LED will do the trick for both the signal and running/parking bulbs in the ARB bumper. I bought some like this: http://www.directleisurerepairs.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/led-18-ba15.jpg

    I went with the "warm white" type. They match incandescent light closer... I would have only gone bright/cool white if I was changing ALL my front lights to LED.

    Bilstein 5100s, OME add a leaf.
    Is this still an option? I have an 06 DCLB Sport Interested in the deluxe with fog lights. There are stock fogs so I assume the wiring kit is unnecessary.

    Whats the price with or without a winch?

    Thanks!
