    What's your opinion on the Warn Bumper? Says you can add a Winch later, without removing the Bumper, and you don't need to cut the Frame or move the Intercooler.

    Are there any that don't rust, or do they pretty much all rust unless you live in the desert?

    I'm running six BD Squadrons - two Racer Edition spots, two Pro's in Driving/Combo, and two Amber Sports in Wide Cornering.

    This combo works well and the light output at each range is great - I'm in Dallas so let me know if you want to take a look.

    It protrudes very far from the front of the truck. It will work with the OEM intercooler, but it doesn block air flow to it. It also will need an ACC relocation bracket, and Warn does not provide one.

    Also, you do not have to cut the frame for a winch bumper. You only have to move the OEM intercooler to make room for the winch in those bumpers. Frame cut bumpers are only required for those wanting extreme approach angles.

    As long as the bumper is fully powdercoated/painted, it won’t rust. If you want additional protection, you could look at having the bumper Line-X’d upon arrival for the ultimate protection. I would recommend going with a Line-X that has UV protection so it won’t fade over time.

    Its a long winter up here.

    This isn't "out mudding/playing", this is "driving to work daily"

    most of that is white/salt, and of course a bunch is tan/dirt.

    I bought a cheap Chinese $180 20" bar on Amazon. Light bars are banned in my province for on-road use, and I'm not going to be off-roading at night much. It's just for filling the hole.

    I'd look into Line-X on the bumpers. Or having them shipped raw so you can have them powder coated locally and not worry about potential finish issues during shipping.

    Looks great! Deciding between this and pro bolt on if I can’t pull the trigger on frame cut :)

    Did you get the bolts replaced to black? That’s the thing I’m not thrilled about with the Venom R
