    I just stopped at Fastenal and purchased some nuts and bolts. I just slapped it together and will make any adjustments to the levelness later. It was too hot. Next may buy a cheap light bar or may cut the crossbar and add additional fog lights.

    That's to move the power steering cooler back so that it can clear the winch.

    BTW, I got mine on tonight. All you need are the 4 bolts and 8 washers. I'm short one washer. They actually should've included some bolts and nuts for moving that power steering line as well. I used a couple that I had lying around and all is well.

    It's a really easy install and if you watch the YouTube videos of similar products you're all set.

    Remove Grill.
    Remove Bumper cover
    Remove 6 bolts that attach bumper to frame rails.
    relocate power steering cooler back toward radiator. `
    Mount winch shelf and brackets onto the 6 studs and reuse OEM Nuts to secure.

    i'll take some pics tomorrow once i have it all dialed in and there's light.
    Same. I’m fixing minor front end damage and new headlights and grill coming. It’s tricky with that straight light bar and so many curves in the grill to get it perfect. Plenty of room for adjustment though so I’ll get it.

    With my truck being black it's hard to tell that it's a bit crooked. Cool front next week so I will spend some time adjusting it then.

    I really want to pull the trigger on this but that light bar mount just stands out too much. I had a Wrangler with several DV8 items on it, all were good quality.

    I thought the same thing, but I love it. I’m more of a “function over form” guy and i now have a place to put lights as well as a place to sit and drink a beer on the front of the truck.

    I called that number in the eBay ad and the guy who installed it on the grey Tacoma was the one who answered. First ring.

    Wonder why? You think these are grey market or something? For the money, I don’t care. Haha.

    Maybe those that they’re getting rid of on eBay were the prototypes? I couldn’t care less. I did think it was odd that it was made in Mexico. At that price, I just assume China.

    Could be that they had an initial run of pieces manufactured in Mexico to send to potential ODM suppliers. No telling. Maybe someone who purchases from 4wheel parts will post some pics to compare.

    I know these guys are on TW from another thread. They’re probably reading these posts, although I doubt they’ll chime in.

    My only complaint was the bag of bolts broke open and some of the nuts, bolts, and a washer was awol. I just stopped at Fastenal and purchased more bolts and some nylock nuts like Hookembevo said. Install was pretty straight forward, I didn't even take off the bumper shell..just took everything out through the opening where valence mounts up.
