I removed the crash bar, bumper is coated, lights are installed, and the d-rings are painted and installed. The only thing missing is a winch.
Look at all the dust from grinding, cutting, and painting. Time to wash it...
A couple of things to note.
The instructions tell you to drill out the factory fog light bolt holes to 1/4". Don't bother, go 5/16". I did 1/4 the first time and it was nearly impossible to mount the lights.
There is no recommended torque spec for the frame to bumper fasteners, I set mine at 75 Ft Lbs and used some red locker as well.
It's not necessary, but d-ring insulators would be a good idea since the shackles flop a lot and have already started removing the coating in less than one day.
The light tabs on the hoop will not fit Hella 500's without longer carriage bolts, spacers/stacked washers. Still trying to decide what I want to do lighting wise. I have some 500FF's that I could put back on the windshield brackets and moves my Dually's down to the bumper. Undecided.
This is a really good looking bumper and flows well with the body. Excellent bumper JCR! Very happy!
