if i remember correct FedEx brought the hubs, santa may have brought everything else

that bumper looks pretty BA, but if it was mine i would make another bracket so you can have more bolts holding it on. What size tubing? 2"?

Where would you put another bracket, would you weld it to the frame then or bolt on

Weld it to the bumper and make it bolt on the truck. That way you can remove it.

the stock brackets bolt to the bottom of the frame so there are 2 or 3 holes on each side you can use.. my bumper is welded to both the stock and BL brackets then bolted to the frame.
