Default Fab Four Bumpers

Anyone have one on their truck? Looking at putting one on and wondered if anyone has any experience with them?

Subscribing. I want the black steel with full grille guard. I'm waiting for a deer to jump out and pay for it though!

Put one on mine and love it. Only thing I was disappointed in is that it did not have tabs to mount lights. I manufactured some and had them welded on then had it stripped and repowder coated. If you do get one make sure you mount it low enough. I had mine too high and broke the seal on my passenger side headlight and got moisture in it, cost me $120 for replacement light assy at the dealer (dealer cost). One reason I choose this one is that it uses the OEM for lights, all the other ones I looked at did not.

Just pulled the trigger on the elite steel bumper with the pre runner bar. Wanted the ultimate but couldn't justify the extra grand. Like the smooth finish on the elite rather than the diamond plate on the standard steel bumper.

For some reason the 4 wheel parts website fit guide is not accurate. The one I ordered was for 2013 and up but said it will fit, after removing bumper and lights 4 wheel parts called and said it was wrong bumper. They put everything back together and will have the new correct bumper hopefully in the next couple of days.

do you have to beef up the front end to handle the additional weight?
