    Not bad actually, Rick's needed some tweaking but nothing we couldn't handle. Mine went right on without any issues.

    Define tweaking please.

    Does that mean you had to open up holes on the bumper, bend parts on the truck.


    Frame alignment?

    Yes, it was just a hole misalignment and we just needed to widen it a little. It did not lose it's structural integrity at all and there was extra braces connected to the frame. I agree with @Unchained 5150 about the issue of buying soon. The biggest thing is going to be the look you are going for and the deals that will be going on to get the best price. Are you looking for a full front bumper, partial front like myself and Rick have, and what options like LED light bar or fog lights inserts?

    This exact piece? If yes, I'll find you a breaker that will mount right up.
