    Installed the new bumper on Friday. Took about 6 hours...shouldn't have but we had to rig a a few things. I think I had the wrong hangers for the skid plate so I had to shim it with a bunch of washers...fit is pretty good. It's not as tight as factory but it's pretty good. I really like it...any thoughts?

    Very nice!!!
    Fit is good, Worth the extra time to fit it up.
    What size are the tires? they look perfect for the lift.

    You will dent everyother panel of your truck before this baby is damaged - I know! :) These bumpers will be the structure the coachroaches will live in when we are all gone! :)

    Yeah...there's room for a small person behind my plate. I don't know how badly I need a winch. I don't do a lot of off-roading. If I can find some people here in Iowa to ride with, I may pick one up. Shrockworks is nice enough to drill plate holes in case you don't want a winch.

    Tires are 265/75...I want to go bigger but will probably buy some different wheels and wait until these are ready to be retired.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys.

    Just one point if you do add a winch, while that bumper is great for strength but for winch access - it sucks! I don't think I would trade mine. I cut out the bottom part of my grill so that I have decent access to the winch.

    The biggest drawback of this bumper is, "Do you have the Emotional Intelligence (patience and control of immediate reward) to own one? ":confused:
