I think it looks damn good! X2 on mounting it a "little" higher, but overall a great looking tough bumper!

No one is saying it looks bad. But the fact is !everyone! thinks that the bumper should to tucked better. So what if you already did the mounts I mounted and welded the seams on my roll pan twice now and am going to cut it off and do it again. Just because you've done it doesn't mean it's finished.

This is just my .02 If you wanna go do what no one likes that's all up to you. All I am saying is if I were to do the bumper I would notch it and tuck it up better for a cleaner more factory look.

Just because most of us think it should be tucked up better doesn't mean it looks bad. The bumper on that truck looks good. Yes, there is gap, but that doesn't mean the BUMPER LOOKS BAD! Just that part of the install looks bad.

As I said, it sticks out a little too far for my personal tastes, but overall, it doesn't look bad.

I agree you should move it up, but only up close enough to the grille so you can get the grille out still then do the lip in the back. Either way it looks good now!

Just a little update on what's going to happen; Tomorrow we will be adding the final 2 braces and making any tabs needed for the fog lights, I have two sets sitting in my truck right now. hopefully tomorrow night I will get the fog lights on and hooked up.

As for the gaps that everyone hates, we are going to fill them with 1"x2" tube and cap the ends and taper it along the line of the grill shell. I just need to get the metal ordered.

That's the plan as of now. I'll keep you all updated.
