    Check this video out, seems pretty simple. I have an older slimline bumper from 2018 where I will have to drill and tap (gonna install the stage 2's next week). Just measure multiple times before you cut. Use a little circ saw or a dremel, makes the job much easier. Luckily you have the trimming to hide some minor imperfections. Electrical tape really helps to make your line.

    Excuse me fam not sure if I missed it in the install video or if I'm a moron....but for the two holes we will have to drill (in the event we have an older slimline) what size drill bit do we use? I know for the existing hole with nut i will drill with 5/16 and tap to 3/8. Do i drill the others with 3/8?

    Thank you!

    This literally means nothing to me. Have you guys started welding the clearance wings and selling the bumper as one piece yet? That's been my hangup since day one. That gap really bothers me no matter how close you get it.

    No they haven’t. I know a bunch of guys are in the same boat waiting. And this will be my deciding factor. I will be buying a bumper in summer to fall and I really want this 1 but if not offered in 1 piece by then it will be a different one 100%.

    Great looking bumper! Any updates on a high clearance version for the 2nd gen trucks?

    Also, while I'm doubtful, any chance of making this for the early ('05-'11) 2nd gens?

    Got the wings about 7 weeks ago...still waiting on main bumper since September's group buy. I'm think the lead times definitely were affected by the GB.

    Can I ask why? I would think marketing this for the 2nd gen would be a good decision. There are literally tons of them out there. Plenty of people buying used ones and modifying.
