Papa, that’s a biiiigggg bumper.

Warren Spears and I spent the day installing the Fab Fours winch bumper and Warn M12000 winch.

Both stout items. Added some 350 pounds to front end weight.

Rethinking this I’d put in a smaller chassis Warn 12K winch so we wouldn’t had to make bumper mods to mount the winch control box.

Still, everything looks clean.

We installed the LED double-row strobes while we had the grille was out.

Speaking of the grille, on our 2013 Ram 2500 diesel we had to notch the FF bumper’s top plate to clear the outer edges of the grille.

An easy mod with the Lincoln Electric plasma cutter…smoother than cutting butter with a hot knife. – Bruce Smith/Editor
