Fits great, easy to install and looks awesome on my 2008 F350. Only issues I had is the fairlead for the Warn 12K winch I was putting on the holes didn't line up and I had to re-drill one not a huge deal. Also had a pretty large scratch on the outside corner of the bumper I will call Iron cross and find out if they sell a touch up paint for it or what they suggest I do.
Installation isn't too tough for the mechanically inclined. Instructions could be better but since it was my third one I pretty much knew that going in. I had to cut a piece from my original bumper to fill the gap between the ARB bar and the grill. Cutting was simple with a jigsaw. One piece of advice is add 1 1/2 inches to what the instructions say as it will look a lot better ( no more than that or it will hit the mounting bracket and you'll need to cut again). Luckily I found that out online. Also, follow the steps in the instructions to a T as far as when to do something. You have to drill 2 holes into the bracket to lock the bar in near the very end, but if like me you decided to mount the turn signal/fog light insert before drilling those holes you can't fit a drill in the underneath side. Doh! I did the entire install by myself in about 4 hours. If you're also installing a winch and don't have a floor jack (which you'll need to cut a few pieces of 2x6 to rest the bar on) you'll need assistance lifting the bar into place unless you're an extreme weight lifter! Then it's just a matter of adjusting here and there and tightening all the bolts. Another tip if you're doing it solo, take 2 small pieces of and 1x wood and wedge them in between the wings and the fender flares as this will really help when making those final tweaks. It only dropped my front end by 1/2" but I'm installing new shocks and coils as the stock ones will wear quickly with the added weight. Tapping the signal/running lights into the existing harness is a breeze, and they do provide you with scotch locks.
All in all I couldn't be happier!
Love the bumper its lightweight but yet strong easy to install and everything fits perfectly and gives the truck a new look and probably install license plate in the middle where the v shape is gotta get it centered first
I installed on a 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali and it fit as described. The original fog lights could be reused, it looks sharp and sturdy.
I've coated it with a Rhino Liner to make it more resistant to corrosion and I will see how that helps withstanding the salty roads here in MI.
I have high expectations that it will work better than the original which rusted in a couple of years and it was too fragile for my applications.
From the first impressions I recommend this product and BumperOnly which made the purchase easy and the shipment seamless.
