    Wow thanks for the info. I have a manufacturing background and I understand that a part that gets chucked into a CNC can get burrs or scratches but those should be polished out in another process even if it doesn’t affect the parts function it is still a matter of pride in workmanship. A bunch of weld slag on the inside of a bumper really won’t stop it from functioning but it looks bad.
    I will look at other offerings or just spend the money on another project.

    I've used Amsoil products for years. They make some great stuff, including an awesome metal protectant that I've used on my '04.

    Installed the USR smoked mirror turn signals (I'm not wiring up the white running light connection though) and their LED license plate lights. Little by little the truck is looking better and better. Smoked lenses look great on Midnight Black. Pretty sure there are already enough photos of both mods, so I'll refrain from adding to the mountain.

    Usually its not too much of a issue, with how dry it gets here the ice usually evaporates pretty quick. I did open my tailgate right when I got home though, as that part freezes solid and I have to put a heater in the topper to thaw it out.

    In Ontario, this is an issue because we get freezing rain sometimes and lately a lot of thaw and freeze type weather accompanied by more rain.

    While it would look awesome, you'd have to do a 6lug conversion on the trailer I think.

    I had a shop install the bumper and winch; they must have installed the bracket the other way around. I'll look at it tomorrow to see if I can flip it.Thanks.

    I put the mud guards back on and somehow I’m not rubbing at all. No rubbing in full lock around turns going forward or in reverse.

    That was my thought after I added ditch light brackets a year later. I think I am going to add a medium size self tapping SS bolt on them in the spring.

    Not worried at all about (the tape).
    I was when i first heard about it, but after the install and seeing how it works I'm not worried at all.
    If you think about it, the bracket is being pushed to the hood the whole time, never really pulled.

    And when I installed it the hood was easily held up by one strut. I open my hood every night as rodent deterrent. Time will tell. But i am very happy and comfortable with them........
