Poison Spyder BFH Front Bumper Install.

This is a step by step install of how to install a Poison Spyder BFH Front Bumper (same for 2 door and 4 door) 2007-2011.

I advise doing the install before painting the bumper. But because i was pressed for time, i painted before i installed.


Step 1: Lay the bumper out on a raised surface and begin the sanding and degreasing process. I used steel wool.

Step 2: Prime and First Layer of bedliner

Step 3: More layers (i did 3 layers of bedliner)

Step 4: Remove the stock front bumper and light wires.
Step 5: Cut a straight vertical line down the tubing 2" from the start of the crash bar.
Step 6: Once removed, begin cutting the crash bar off. and grinding all cuts smooth.




Step 6: Slide on the bumper to make sure it fits. Once on, mark the holes for the bolts (2 on upper left, 2 on upper right, 2 on bottom left, 2 on bottom right) Then pull off the bumper and drill those holes. *Make sure the upper and lower holes line up*


Step 6: again, put on the bumper. Grab the 4 supplied bolts and slide them into the 8 drilled holes. be sure to put 1 washer on each side. Then tighten on the nuts on the bottom.

Step 7: if you have fog light wiring, i ziptied them up to the bottom of the bumper, so its not hanging.
Finished Product:




Be sure to check again in a few days that the bolts are tight holding the bumper on.

Looks good man. Nice write up. Why would you recommend installing and then painting it instead of vice versa?

Nice idea goody!!


And the reason I suggest testing to make sure everything fits is because once you paint it. You can't return it. If they were to for some reason send you a bumper that didnt fit right.

And also because you're working with the bumper so much on and off. Good chance of paint getting scratched off and smudged if painted before installing.
