    I did need to drill out the spacers for cooler relocation. The holes were not cut cleanly and the bolts would not go through. That and the missing nuts and bolts were the only things that I had go wrong.

    What size light bar does it fit? Looks like maybe 30"? I like the price, and it looks pretty nice, but I don't really need any more lights TBH. The KC Pro6 is already overkill lol.

    Interested to see someone chop that light bar off. Not sure I like that part, but the rest looks pretty good.

    I’ve looked at it over and over and over. I don’t think it can be done without a lot of grinding to smoothen it all out and then getting it resprayed. The lines won’t be right. I’ve had it in my cart and looked at pictures posted and stock photos and the light bar has to stay unless you want to put more leg work and money into it which you’d basically could get a C4 or SOS at that point after all said and done

    Anyone else gave in to the pressure yet? Curious if all of the light bar brackets are straight. I was about to buy a 4XI bumper but this is so d@mn cheap.

It tucks in pretty tight to the truck. I finally got around to fine tuning last night and I dig it. For me, it’s a very good style-match to the rock steps and new grill. I was really pleased with how nicely it all tied together.

    For those installing, get a 2x6 and run it across the front brace underneath and your bumper at the same time, with your floor jack in the center. Leave all 10 bolts a little loose. Get everything 100% square and then just tweak it to perfect alignment/spacing and snug her down!

    Now just gotta wire lights. Winch will wait until I get springs. It will fit a 20” light bar, but it has to be single row. I believe you have just shy of 2” to work with. The factory license plate mount is going to work perfectly, but mine is currently held with zip ties until I do some dremel work, which is why it appears crooked for you OCD guys. I am going to set mine up on a hinge with some type of quick release setup but have to make the time.

    Thanks man! Appreciate that.

    They’re 265/75/16. No rubbing and cost me less than 1 mpg. I did a small lift when I put them on, added OME 885 springs up front, add a leaf rear, and 5100s. Ride and performance better than stock and I have no regrets. When I get the winch on, I’ll get the 886s to compensate for the weight.

    It looks pretty good IMO, and cost is about the same as a hidden winch mount. I think I might pull the trigger on this myself.
