I live in Upland.

The bumper is super easy to take on and off. 4 bolts.

that Fabtech bar was pretty easy too, just had to drill some holes and bolt it in!

yeah. it mounts right onto the front crossmember. Its somewhat hard to reach, but basically its right around where the tow hooks are mounted.

I don't see why you would need help... Taking off my bumper didn't even take 5mins my first time. Easier than changing a tire!

yeah... just do it. If you drill and can't get your hands or wrench under it, spend 4-5 mins and take the bumper off!!

The bolt isn't going to affect how the bumper goes on at all.

Yes I understand your 06 bumper is a little different than my 05 but the under side should be near the same.. you'll have plenty of room to put nuts on underneath the bumper with it mounted...

well when i looked under there the one time i did it seemed that the metal part was a box so i didnt think it was possible to put a nut on there but it seems i may have been wrong.

and redoctober.. what are the dimension of the lights you have? i was going to go with the 500s but im worried they are going to be too small

theres nothing under there, except the frame and front crossmember... but it gives you plenty of room to bolt stuff on.

I didnt even take the bumper off to bolt that light bar up.

Im kinda confused as to what you wanna do.

I think he's the confused one. Have you not gone and looked at the bumper? It sounds like you haven't

lol ok so i went and took another look....

well i dont know what the heII i saw before but this time i looked it all made sense. i apoligize for even asking the question cause now i see why you guys were confewsed at what i was asking. when i looked at it with ar friend the first time it looked like a box or a tube well its not its only a damn L shape so its SUPER EZ to bolt onto.. lol o man..


thanks guys for trying, but my question was flawed
