    No they don't have a write-up, the video SHOULD suffice. I watched it like 100 times before I received my bumper so I had the instructions almost memorized by the time I got to installing it. It's pretty well put together but I will say, there are some areas where you will need to get creative with your install. Getting some of those plastic clips out is much more difficult that they make it look, and sometimes you just gotta put in some elbow grease and do whatever you gotta do to make it happen.

    I can't really think of anything in particular I encountered when installing it that wasn't covered in the video. If you DO have any questions, feel free to ask.

    yeah I watched it a million times. I think I can handle it.

    thanks for the update!! I’ll let you know if I encounter any issues.

    im having it shipped to my truck in the Middle East so it’s going to be delayed since the airport is closed in Lebanon. It should be done by the end of April. Hopefully the airport is open by then.

    Big oof on that one. I'm curious what kind of offroading you have available out there. I know trying to drive in the sand is a huge PITA if you don't have gigantic tires. And your weight to tire size ration needs to be really low.

    Anyways if you need help with install you know where to go :thumbsup:

    Same thing happened to me.

    This guys ^ right here. You'll have to unthread the sleeve it's in before installing.

    Wondering if anyone with this bumper has had any issues with the rear end of it sagging a bit? It looks like it's pitch up towards the front, like maybe it's too much weight for the frame to handle and it's bending it?

    Maybe check all the bolts to make sure they are tight.

    or loosen all of them and straighten the bumper out then re tighten everything to spec.

    When you say rear end sagging, are referencing the bumper itself or the truck? The rear end of my truck definitely is sagging. I put a level on my bed rail and it drops an 1” from the front of the bed to rear of the bed.

    My plan is to add the Archive Hammer Hangers and go up to the Deaver U402 Stage III’s.

    No I mean the bumper itself. In this picture you can kinda see it's pitched up a bit from rear to the front EVER so slightly.

    Also yea I'm going to go with the hammer hangars soon as well. Debating on whether or not to go with his shackles as well. Seems like the half inch lift gain by keeping stock shackles might be worth it.

    I see what you’re saying. It’s like the bumper wasn’t leveled before it was bolted or the hole that attaches at the rear of the bumper to frame was drilled out too large.

    I would suggest trying what @SubaruTheTacoma suggested above.

    I would be curious to know what you discover.

    I actually just got done re tightening everything. Put a jack up under the center of the rear, loosened all the sideways facing bolts, torqued down the 4 vertical facing bolts, then tightened everything back down, then dropped it off the jack. Not much change

    Unfortunately, I got nothing else. Have you contacted C4 to see if they have any ideas?

    Nice. I got crickets in response to my email about it....

    Anyway, I think that these are the same, I'll let you guys know since its not insignificantly cheaper and it looks like ill be stocking up on a few of these.

    Update: These work perfectly if anyone else needs some in the future

    Whats the angle that the truck bed is at vs the bumper? Maybe your fender cut is just off making it look like its sagging? IDK just grasping for straws here
