So a week before Christmas I managed to bump my bumper and at less than 4mph it still had quite the dent.

My sensor never went off so, pissed about that, but on the bright side I now have a reason to get a front bumper, the ranch hand was my first choice with grill guard since this happened about 6 months earlier:

But I can’t get over my own, very personal, displeasure with the way they bent the tubing so I’m looking at other options.
 

Has anyone seen or heard anything bad about these? I’m going to try and see if it’s more economical to buy the winch, light bar, and lights separate or choose from their options. Will keep you posted but just wanted to ask this esteemed community if y’all had 2 cents to pitch in?
 

I like the no Bull bar option personally. That’s the first Fab Fours I’ve seen that looks good and not too Fast and Furious. Either would look good on your truck though. I bought a rear Vengeance from them for my Titan XD years ago and was pissed. It didn’t line up and follow the lines of the truck at all as was depicted in the pictures. Went back and forth with Real Truck whom I got it from, and finally called Fab Fours directly. They actually made it right and got me fixed up to return it so I’ll give their customer service a nod. As for Real Truck…F them!

Let us know what you do. I’ll be anxiously waiting to see it installed!
 

Finally getting around to fixing my front end damage, grabbed a headlight from the “a” store after my indicator started failing. and it is a major pain in the butt to switch out!

So I decided I want protection for the grill, but the few options there are don’t appeal to me. So, I’m looking into combining the legend grill guard with the ADD stealth fighter bumper with some sort of bracket that utilizes the front clevis mounts…

Tried really hard but couldn’t justify the cost for the ADD so I pulled the trigger and ordered the baseline octane front bumper for my 2020. $1444 and free shipping. Will keep yall posted!

I hear good things on the Rouch Country light bar $299). Ain’t no way I’m paying over $500 for a light bar, let alone some of these that cost $1500+.

 

So everything has arrived, baseline front octane bumper, RC 30” curved dual black series light bar, and RC 12000# winch w/ synthetic line. Gonna be a busy weekend! Anyone installed any of these on their AT4?

Well, I lost the battle today but I’m going to win the war, took us forever to get the last two bolts off, if you are planning on doing it yourself, ratcheting box wrenches aren’t suggested, theyre pretty much mandatory. Back at it tomorrow…
 

After rain delays, and 2hrs after work on Monday and yesterday, I finally have the bumper attached! Also function tested light bar and winch, both worked! Now I just have to tidy up all the wires, and put the GD grill back on… seriously if anyone gets this bumper I feel like I’m well versed on the little tricks that are involved.

Finally got it buttoned up, I like it, going to need a little adjustment to close the gaps but I think it turned out fairly well for a diy and first time electrifying a winch. Also a kinda before after of the approach angle.

The plastic “skid plate” hanged just an inch lower than the bottom of the bumper, noticed decreased mpg, so I removed it, but I do need something to protect the engine… all ideas welcome!

well done, I can't imagine the frustration at times, I probably would've wanted to drive the whole thing off a cliff!
Be careful now, It doesn't look like you still want to run around playing bumper cars :D
