    That's odd AF. I had mine in 3 days, but I ordered from Yota Garage.

    Installed mine yesterday. Did it solo with the exception of having my wife guide the bumper onto the frame studs, while I lifted it. Would be way easier with a friend helping the whole way. About 3.5 hours.

    Maybe these photos will help someone as a guide how to cut your bumper.

    Mine actually came with a license plate mount. But here in the Sunshine state, we dont need no stinkin' front plate.

    As another user said the only way to access it is by popping the hood and reaching behind the grill. I was worried about this because it's also the only way I can plug in my winch controller. Thought about going wireless but after testing it out, and only being 5'8", I am easily able to access and operate my winch by opening the hood and reaching down there.

    Did yours not come with a license plate mount? You pay shipping, you can have mine. Let me know.

    No it did, but it hangs straight down, his was like tucked and flush with the bumper. I’m worried I’m gunna tear it off when I’m off-roading. And once I put a winch in it seems like it’ll be not usable. Unless I’m just doing it wrong

    My thought exactly. But I know if I add a winch later, I'll have to do something different....
