    Zilla, do you have full-width axles on that thing, or is it spacers and offset?

    that i cant remember my recipt was for bumper only... but that doesnt mean i didnt get the kit next pay day.... the mounts it uses are just flat 3/8 x 3.5" stock... probably could re use your stock bumper mounts with like re drilling one hole or so per side... bumper has tons of options made onto it for mounting holes... like 10 per side if you want I can take a pic of mount

    there is two holes in bumper that you can mount two small L brackets to and mount tag to them...or do what I did... bent the bottom of the tag over to make it backwards L shape and bolted it to bumper... and yeah standard 2" receiver.. I need to get pics of my DD with the lift and bumper
