Icon4 BL help...again!!!!

I finished my BL, except for the bumpers...I cant seem to figure out the directions on mounting them...Anybody got any pics of installing them, or pics of the finished product....Do you have to cut the stock brackets?

Let me know what else you need, you don't need to cut ianything. The front is easy just put the stock mount on the body lift mount, the body lift mount gets bolted to the truck.

Rear ones....eliminate the stock brackets. replace with the PA brackets. you'll see the holes in the frame for the brackets....ALL rangers have them.

For the front bumper. I FOund out how it mounted finally the bumper is on minus the valance and fog lights (to hard to take off the tow hooks with hand tools)....Not my bumper is kinda crooked or something...The passenger side is closer to the body than the drivers side...and it seems to kinda tilt at a slight angle down...??WTF

I tried bending the bumper with my hands it kinda worked out..>The top 2 bolts on the new brackets are all the way tight either (dont have a deep socket)......

Can i take my rear receiver off and the bumper will be easier to mount??

How does your rear reciever hitch mount? Trevor's and mine mounts to the same spot the PA bumper brackets mount to. Austin's mounts to right under the frame. Depends on the hitch.
