DelaRanger95' New Stuff/Build

Hey guys. I know I havent posted up in a while with any updates so I thought yall would enjoy this. I got a big sum of cash saved up and went crazy. Ordered a set of rock sliders and a DBR front bumper! As it turns out they both arrived on the same day! The sliders to my house and the bumper to my stepmoms real estate office (they werent exactly thrilled lol). But i digress. Both are getting Rhinolined to match my truck bed and the sliders will be welded on. I havent unwrapped the sliders yet as they are pretty heavy and i just got out of the hospital. Zach does great work tho. Thanks to Zabeard! Ive been waiting to buy this stuff for about 3 years so its a BIG day!

Sorry for the crappy pics but heres a couple of teasers.

hokay
so

I went to Rhinolinings today and got on the schedule and got quoted. My day is on the 29th. Whatever i like suspense any way. My buddy and I looked at the frame where the bumper mounts to to see if we could put it on now just for fun and cant figure out where the other mounts go to. They look like they mount up where the sway bar is attached to the frame. Check it out and help me out.
Thanks

Honestly man.. you DO NOT need the front sway bar.. I haven't been running mine for about 2 years now.. with 11" of lift in the front..and I can still take corners pretty quick without any sketchy feelings of rolling.. my truck never felts like it's goona tip. Just do away with it, you'll be thankfull

Hey guys. I need one last piece of advice/wisdom from you before I do this. Since the MASMF dinner is saturday and I know Joe and Brenda want to see the bumper a few of my friends and I have decided to try our best to do it saturday morning. I have an outdoor air system with impact wrench, a sledgehammer (for hitting the welded on front forks off), plenty of flat black rattle cans for the poor old frame, wire brushes, and of course plenty of mountain dew nd assorted nom noms to munch on.

My question to you is what size Grade 8 bolts am i going to need? This bumper mounts to the original bumper mounts and under the frame where my sway bar attaches to. Thanks Again!!!!!!!
