This is what I did to install my GenRight ALUM front bumper. There were no instructions included with the bumper. The install is pretty straight forward but there were a couple of things I had to contact GenRight about. They got the answer right back to me. This is not overly detailed but hopefully it helps.
1. Remove your old front bumper and fogs. I had removed an aftermarket bumper to install this one but the stock one is straight forward. You may need to remove the stock tow hooks and then remove the 8 bolts behind the frame rails.
2. If you are going to mount lights onto the bumper drill the hole now.
3. This is what I received. It was banded to two pallets and packed very well. Everything was accounted for. Before you begin I would recommend buying 8 1 1/2" 7/16 grade 8 bolts and nuts to replace the ones shipped with the bumper. the 1 1/4" bolts do not go all the way through the nuts when you bolt this together. Another quarter inch is all you need.
4. You will need to cut the front frame brace at an angle on both sides. you can place the bumper up and mark where it touches. You will need to cut it from where it is mounted to the frame at an angle inward to the very edge of the first hole on each side.
5. Loosen the swaybar and remove the rubber grommet so you can put the tray up into place.
6. Thread the top hole in the frame rail on each side with the tap provided.
7. Insert the winch tray between the frame rails by sliding it up from the bottom. There is a slot in the tray that will go between frame and the frame horns. It will be a tight fit and if you did not loosen your sway bar it will not let the tray lay flat. It sits very close to the swaybar once it is bolted in place.
8. Install the side supports onto the frame rail so the holes line up with the lower bolt an the top bolt. The kit came with four course thread 1" bolts and four nuts welded to a metal tab. Slide the metal tab up into the support and put a bolt through the lower hole when it is lined up. * my kit has fine thread nuts so I had to use two of the 1 1/4" bolts intended for the front frame horns. Tighten these down now.
9. Install your winch now. Use whatever mounting hardware came with the winch. There are eight mounting holes.
10. Now you can install the bumper. If the lower brace was cut you should be able to slide the bumper all the way back against the grill. The upper hole should line up with the hole you tapped earlier in the frame. There is a 1/2" bolt that will go in this hole.
11. On the lower brace install the remaining course thread bolts into the two holes in the bottom of the bumper. You will use the two remaining nuts with metal tabs welded to them behind these bolts. * my kit had fine thread nuts welded to the tabs so I used two more bolts intended for the front frame horns.
12. Use the remaining bolts to mount the front bumper with the shackle loops onto the front of the frame horns. I recommend using 1 1/2" bolts instead of the 1 1/4" bolts provided. The nuts are easily accessible from the back of the bumper. If the holes do not line up place a punch into one of the front holes and press down or up to get the holes to align.
I realy like this bumper! How is it holding so far? Have you used it hard? Did you do anything special for painting it? Just wondering if bomb can paint will stick ok to aluminum?
The bumper is holding up well. I have not abused it at all yet so that is a factor.
To paint it I scuffed it with a scotch pad and then cleaned it with a degreaser. I primed it with a self etching primer rattle can and then painted it with a rattle can black paint. So far it is holding up well.
