    No take the license plate mount off. Measure from the curve where the insert fits to the bumper

    If you’re still having trouble I have a spare bumper at home I will take a picture and send it to you as to where exactly to measure off. Can’t on mine cause it’s already done

    Got it cut now! Just waiting on my dad for space hands to attach the bumper. Did you put in the 4th supplied bolt or i will be fine with 3 factory ones? Also I didn’t remove the grill, should i remove it now when attaching the bumper? Or there is ways to tighten the nut without taking the grill off?

    Good job on the cut. Remove your grill. You’ll need to for access mounting the bumper.
    yes use the 4th supplied bolt. It’s crucial as it’s the lowest mounting point so is very important if you ever pull or maybe even winch

    So, truck doesn't come in until next month, but I'm racking up the accessories. I have a Diamondback bed cover, Predator rails, and interior odds and ends in the garage. Hiline bumper showed up today.

    Pretty impressed with the packaging. They wrapped it in a thin bubble wrap, then wrapped it again in foam wrap. Definitely helped it against dings because the box was a little beat up.

    Bumper itself is great quality. Scanned through the instructions also and install seems pretty cut and dry. Add all the great info from this thread and I'm looking forward to adding this on the truck.

    Ok from reading the posts I went straight to it and cut the front off without removing anything. I used an oscillating tool. Any advice how to get this crash bar off. The bolts are off but crash bar has a little wiggle but not breaking loose.

    There are clips on the crash bar to remove this piece. Just clip them off.

    Yup if I remember correctly there was a fastener on each underside that pin the inner fender to the bumper and that attached on the inside to the black brackets that come off each side of the crash bar

    Looks great!!! Mine is still sitting in the garage waiting on the truck.

    Off topic question, are those the Go Rhino D2 Dominator steps you have there? How are you liking them. I need steps due to my little girl, and i'm torn between these, and the Predators. I like the tube shape of the Go Rhinos I think.

    I wanted rock sliders but for my kids I got these. These steps are from Ebay only paid $120 and they are great and the hoop matches the body armor bumper hoop. You can see a review on youtube that sold me on these:
