HELPFUL INFORMATION ON BUMPERS:

HAVE A PROFESSIONAL INSTALL YOUR NEW BUMPER IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH MODERATE AUTOMOTIVE DIY PROJECTS. winches are heavy!  Be careful to protect yourself, your truck, and your bumper.  Always best to have at least one helper when removing or installing large, heavy parts. TEST FITTING bumpers first is recommended.

INSTALLATION CAN BE DONE BY MOST PEOPLE COMFORTABLE WITH DIY GARAGE / DRIVEWAY / AUTOMOTIVE PROJECTS.  IF YOU ARE NOT SURE OF YOUR ABILITY TO TAKE ON BUMPER REPLACEMENT WE RECOMMEND YOU TAKE THEM TO A SHOP THAT CAN HELP (OFF-ROAD, CUSTOM SHOPS, BODY SHOP, ETC). 

*REAR BUMPERS ARE USUALLY EASIER THAN FRONTS.

IF APPLICABLE. MAKE SURE YOU PLAN FOR WINCH MOUNTING, WINCH CONTROLLER RELOCATION, POWER CABLE ROUTING.   

PLAN FOR LIGHTING MOUNTING, LED LIGHTS MAY NEED TO BE FITTED BEFORE FINAL INSTALLATION, SAME FOR WIRE HARNESS ROUTING, AT LEAST AT BUMPER.  

MOST WINCH SPECIFIC FRONT BUMPERS, IT IS MANDATORY TO INSTALL WINCH INTO BUMPER BEFORE FINAL INSTALLATION 

MOST BUMPERS ARE DESIGNED TO BE BOLT-ON DIRECT REPLACEMENTS FOR FACTORY OEM BUMPERS, SOME FRONT BUMPERS MAY REQUIRE TRIMMING OF WHEEL WELL SPLASH SHIELDS *some bumpers require trimming of factory parts like body panels, this will be noted in the item description

FITTING:   DEPENDING ON THE MODEL, THERE WILL BE SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED. MOST BUMPERS ARE SIMPLE R & R.   SOME MODELS RE-USE STOCK HARDWARE & BRACKETS, SOME MODELS MAY INCLUDE ADDITIONAL OR REPLACEMENT HARDWARE & ADDITIONAL BRACKETS, MANY MODELS ELIMINATE FACTORY BRACKETS AND BOLT DIRECTLY TO THE VEHICLE FRAME.  

PLENTY OF SLOTTED ADJUSTMENT IS BUILT-IN FOR FITTING & ALIGNING TO YOUR VEHICLE. ALWAYS INSTALL ON SMOOTH LEVEL SURFACE AND ALLOW CLEARANCE FOR FRAME FLEX AT BODY, GRILL & LIGHTS. *We recommend, (mostly on front bumpers) leaving a larger gap at the body, trim, headlight contact points at first, then test frame flex on an uneven trail, etc. (your normal type of driving) check for contact, adjust tighter or looser as necessary. better to have a larger fit-gap at first and bring it in tighter as needed vs damaging paint or body because gaps are too tight. Please note, most people are surprised how much frame flex there is between the bumper and body area, especially in off-road terrain.  Tip: you can use small pieces of modeling clay between gaps to determine flex points


*SOME TRIMMING OF SPLASH SHIELDS IS USUALLY NEEDED WITH SUPER HIGH CLEARANCE FRONT BUMPERS, BEST TO TEST FIT TO INSPECT & MARK WHERE TRIMMING IS NEEDED, TRIMMING OF FACTORY SPLASH SHIELDS CAN BE DONE WITH HD SCISSORS OR SNIPS.

AT THE SAME TIME AS TEST FIT, IF YOUR TRUCK IS A LIGHTER COLOR, AREAS NOW EXPOSED AFTER THAT FACTORY OEM BULKY BUMPER IS GONE MAY NEED BLACKING OUT TO AVOID SHOWING THROUGH. 
(USE FLAT BLACK SPRAY PAINT, UNDERCOATING... AS NEEDED BEFORE FINAL BUMPER INSTALL)


DEPENDING ON THE BUMPER AND IF A WINCH IS INSTALLED, IT CAN BE VERY HEAVY, MULTIPLE HELPERS CAN ALWAYS HELP HERE.
