    That makes me happy. I bought my slimline with the initial group buy. I ordered my HCK through a third party in the middle of may. I need to call them see were my parts are! Getting anxious AF!

    The one piece, if it happens, won't be this year. It's not even on the drawing board.

    Got it finished up last night. Tried to get some decent photos, but black bumper on a black truck with an overcast day. Had to over expose and blow out the shadows, but you should get the idea. All in, it wasn't that bad of an install, for anyone that has a block heater installed, you may have to relocate it, you have to unplug it from the element and pull it out through the bumper and reroute it.

    One big tip, for anyone running a Smittybilt X2O waterproof winch, or anyone planning on running one. Replace your wireless switch with a waterproof one, it's a common failure and very easy to fix. Mine hasn't worked for the last couple years, either of these is a direct replacement.

    or the illuminated one (which is what I went with, just had to add the ground wire)

    https://www.amazon.com/GAMA-Electro...ker/dp/B0039L0GKG?ref_=bl_dp_s_web_2592348011

    I relocated my control box, with the wireless not working, wife had a had time getting the remote plugged in, the mounts had also rusted to the point they snapped off when I was removing the bumper.

    The only other thing I would add, for @SouthernStyleOffRoad is if the hardware was 1/4" longer it would have been ideal, I added two shims and the included bolts were just barely long enough.

    It's less than 2mm worth of shims. Those are pretty tight tolerances by any standards, especially a bumper.

    Seems like you're fixing the symptom and not the problem

    I never said I was better. It just sounds crazy to fix symptoms and not problems.

    Not to be an ass, but have you done any metal fabricating before? Are you aware how much metal pulls, twists and distorts during welding? All based on amps, volts, arc length, travel speed, heat input, location and order of the pass....like I said previously, 2mm is a pretty tight tolerance when it comes to fabrication and slight variations are unavoidable.

    That turned out great. Looks good on that access cab too! I’m running that winch as well. Thanks for tip on the switch.

    What are people doing for license plate mounts? Unfortunately, Texas requires a front license plate.

    I just bought some clips from Lowe's and clipped it over the light bar cut out. I can remove it in about 5 seconds if I go Offroad.IMG_20190417_163305.jpg
