I'd imagine more like 6 bolts. 4 on top of the frame and 2 on the bottom

by the price i am guessing you got the front bumper. I took my stock one off and had the new bumper mounted and the lights back on within 45 minutes. Just have a size 55 Torx available and you should be good to go. I guess my pictures convinced ya to get the bumper...nice job.

I had absolutley no issues installing my SRC bumpers. I should clarify, my 9 year old son didn't have any issues. He did most of the work, I just supervised.

Now you need to fill the void with a winch, add some aux. fogs and some rally lights.....don't forget to get some D-Rings to round it out.

ya taz ya convinced me with the pics. I can't wait to get it. its comin from livermore, CA so hopefully it will be here in a few days. I installed my new warn winch (XD9000i) on my new plate last night and put it on the stock bumper for now (goin campin today after I get off work). I was suprised at how easy it was to get it setup, and I did use the breaker bar/torque wrench (have air tools as well, but I don't think my neighbors would appreicate me starting the compressor up at 11:30 at night. so now all I need according to MOz is the Lights and D-rings, which I had planned on getting soon anyway. . pictures will definately be posted from this trip and after I get the install done.

I also bought a heavy duty chain (about 8 ft. long) and a couple of 1" heavy duty stainless steel D-rings. In the event I get stuck (or if I'm pulling stumps out of the yard) I wrap the chain around the tree, connect it together using the smaller D-rings and then connect the winch to the loop.

I store the chain between the two D-rings on the front bumper....

lol, I'm thinkin its a little more complicated than that espeecially on my end, the guy I go through used to work for my dad his wife actually works for warn, I know him but not to the point where I see or talk to him every week so even for me its a little difficult getting the parts right away, and its gonna be even more difficult because they are moving even further away, oh well on to the next contact. lol
