    I don't know if there is an actual issue with it, but it is ugly in my opinion.

    Yea not the best looking bumper but the cutout for lights and steps are very helpful. My local truck shop has 1 in stock, are a little cheaper and will install it.

    Description says Parking Sensor ready but not Blind Spot Sensor ready. It would be fine if you don't have the Tech Package.

    Just got the bumper installed and love it. Looks better in person and it's much easier getting into the bed. I think the top of the stock bumper is about 28" off the ground. Bottom of the step is about 22.5" which makes it a lot easier.

    Only wish it would have tow hooks like it does for other trucks.

    I think it would look good if it didn't have those gaping holes in it for the LED lights.

    But are very helpful when reversing in a dark area, outdoor activities or flashing the asshole that is tailgating or has high beams.

    This is very true, I just think the bumper would look better if they'd have kept it solid and let people add their own aux lighting. Cant argue that the lights are definitely useful! I have aux rev lights on my 2nd gen and they have saved me at night since I've added a shell.

    For being a Warn product they should make it winch compatible...

    OP do you have BSM? If so, does it function like OEM? I'm in the market for a metal bumper but only other vendor that makes it BSM compatible is C4. I'm not a fan of the slant that c4 made near the steps and where the tow hitch goes. This bumper is my best consideration.

    I have been in repeated contact with Warn about this bumper. It is NOT BSM compatible. They are in the process of changing their advertising to reflect that it does not work with 3rd Gen BSM systems. Their engineers are working to make it compatible and asked that I give them at least a month to try and work it out.

    I have a 2017 TRD Sport and had the Ascent bumper installed as the website says that it has the sensor mounts. The only issue is the Sport has blind spot sensors that will not work with this bumper. I really like the bumper as it is strong and sturdy, I just wish that Warn would let people know the BSS are not supported. I bought the bumper and had it installed just to lose safety features as all the sensors are tied together and now none of the ones in the rear work.
