    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, it's Joe from AmericanTrucks, and today we're gonna be taking a closer look at the Barricade Extreme HD Front Bumper fitting all '16, '17, and '18 Silverado 1500s. Now, this is gonna be a great option for you if you're looking for an offroad capable and good-looking front bumper for your truck that is gonna come at a budget-friendly price. So, let's dive a little bit deeper into the Extreme HD here. Let's start with what this bumper is made out of, and that is heavy-duty cold form 5/32-inch steel plate. That's gonna be great, whether you're at the worksite or you're doing some offroading on the trail. This is going to add a lot more durability to the front end of your truck and more clearance as well, especially when compared to that factory front bumper, which we're gonna get the two side by side in just a second here and really highlight the differences between both of the bumpers. This bumper isn't just bringing durability, though, on our 6-inch lifted '16 Silverado in gray. I think this black powder coating on here looks great. It really matches the blackout motif we were going for, but that's also going to serve a second purpose to protect that steel underneath from the elements. Some features from the factory front bumper, obviously, we get to keep our tow hooks, that's a nice touch. Not all bumpers do that, so it's good we get to keep that recovery point. Also, if your state requires the use of a front plate, these two pre-drilled holes right here, they would mount up to a front plate bracket which is included in the kit, and we do have four pre-drilled holes for proximity sensors. If your truck is option with those, they would transfer right over and you'd get to keep that feature as well. If you couldn't tell, I'm pretty fond of the Extreme HD, I think it has a lot going for it. Build quality with that cold form the steel, we have a good design, a lot of clearance upfront, approach angle on the sides, that's all well and good. Awesome blackout looks, and we get to keep a lot of features from the factory front bumper as well as add some new lighting options. Pricing for this, we're looking at around 735 bucks. Now, that's not bad when you're considering '16 to '18 Silverado front bumpers. Usually, the most budget-friendly starts around 600, and for something that's really premier you will go all the way up to 1,200 bucks. So, to get this, it's definitely more on the budget-friendly side and it brings a lot of those features from the premier bumpers down to a budget-friendly price tag, and I definitely commend this bumper for that. So, let's get to the good stuff here. The install portion of the video we're gonna show you how to get the Extreme HD installed on your Silverado. Now, just a word of warning here. In order to get the factory from bumper off, we do need to remove the grille so that might be a little bit more involved than you're expecting. Also, this bumper is pretty heavy-duty so I would recommend having a buddy on hand and a case of beer for the both of you to get this job done. I'm gonna give it an easy two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Other than those two things, there's no modification required. This is a straight bolt-on. You can use all hand tools. And if you come with the right stuff, I think it'll take you an hour or two at most. So, without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need and how it's done. Tools we use for this install are going to include an impact, U-joint, extension, socket set ranging from 10 millimeters all the way up to 18 millimeters, a 16 and 18-millimeter wrench, and a trim panel removal tool. The hardware that holds our bumper on is actually underneath of the front grille, so we're gonna remove that first, and the first step in doing that is getting off this big plastic radiator shroud right here. It's held on with a bunch of push pins, I'm going to use a trim panel removal tool to remove those. With all those removed, we can now pull straight up on this and get it off the truck. With that out of the way, it's gonna reveal four 10-millimeter bolts right behind this chrome lip of the front grille right here. We're gonna remove those and pull the grill off next.At this point, the grille is held on with a couple of body clips. So, we're just gonna give it a firm pull and it should come right off. So, now we have clear access to the hardware holding on our bumper on top. Before we loosen that up, we're actually going to crawl underneath and hit some hardware on the bottom. It's 15 millimeters, we're gonna do that first so this doesn't fall on us if we save that hardware for last. So, the bolt we're going to be loosening up is on this arm here. As you can see our bolt is pretty much new. It's a 17-millimeter, I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be a 15-millimeter from the factory. And we're gonna do the same thing for the other side. So, now we can come back up top, there's four 18-millimeter bolts holding the bumper on now, we're gonna remove the two on top. There's two in the middle that are a little bit sunken down so I have the extension on the gun to make those reachable. Now our bumper is completely loose, we could pull it straight off the truck. So, now we can see these bumper mounting brackets here, they're held on with three 15-millimeter bolts, we're going to remove those on both sides.Now we can take our tow hook apart. This is held on with all 18-millimeter hardware. One thing to note, this bolt in the front does go all the way through the tow hook so you will need an 18-millimeter wrench for that one. This one in the back threads right into it. Now we're gonna do the same thing for the other side. So, now that we have the factory bumper off of our Silverado, I figure now would be the perfect time to stop down, put the two next to each other, point out some key differences, and mainly what is gonna make this barricade bumpers so much better for the front end of your truck. First and foremost here, the most obvious and the biggest difference between these two is, again, a column in the looks department. We're ditching that factory chrome and plastic look in exchange for some heavy-duty 5/32-inch steel plate finished in that black powder coating. There's no question this is an upgrade in the looks department over the old factory stuff. Now, that steel plate for is also gonna be great in terms of durability. Whether you're at the worksite or you're on the trail, this is gonna provide a little bit more protection than just some regular old plastic would. Now, speaking about offroading, you could tell this was designed with offroading in mind. Just how much this tapers up on the end compared to the factory front bumper, that's obvious. But it's also not gonna sit as low with this big plastic factory air dam at the bottom. This is gonna be nice and tight up to the truck, maximizing clearance, and it's gonna maximize approach angle as well. We do have some new features, though. This is gonna accommodate up to a 20-inch light bar in the middle. Obviously, we don't have anything to compare that too on our factory front bumper. We don't have fog lights either, which on top of that light bar in the middle, you can mount up to this barricade on either ends, all the hardware you would need to do that is included in the kit. We keep some features from the factory front bumper even, you can see there's some holes pre-drilled on here for proximity sensors. If you do have those, they would transfer right over. In our case we are gonna fill those with some plugs in just a second here. Also, this is going to allow you to keep your tow hooks, we're gonna show you how to mount that up in just a second as well. And on top of that, if the state you live in requires the use of a front license plate, there's a bracket included in the kit. We're gonna skip that one, pretty self-explanatory, it mounts up to those two holes right upfront. So, little bit of prep work before we mount this onto the truck, we're gonna fill those holes with the rubber plugs included in the kit. Then we're gonna go over to our truck and prepare our tow hooks. After that, we should be able to mount this bad boy up. These plugs are just gonna pop in right like so. If you do wanna make sure these don't fall out, you could use the hardware to mount up a sensor to secure these, but the friction from the rubber on the steel does a great job of holding these in place. I wouldn't think that's necessary, but, again, you could use the hardware included in the kit to do so.For the next step, we're gonna take care of our tow hooks. First thing we're gonna need is this bowl plate right here as well as the single bowl plate that comes included in the kit and this extender bracket. Now, we already removed our tow hook, we have the end of this frame rail open, and this is just gonna sit on the bottom of that like so. Then we're just gonna take the bolt plate that comes in the kit, the double bolt plate on this side and then on the other side. We're going to install a signal bolt plate like that. After that we could put a flat washer, lock washer, and 18-millimeter nut on all three of the studs. Now we can tighten them all down. Now, with everything on this install, all the holes here are slotted so if you do need some adjustment, you can always loosen these up later and make an adjustment and then tighten them back down. So, now we can actually install the tow hook to the bracket, and first things first we're gonna grab a tow hook, we're gonna have to remove that foam, we're not going to need that anymore. And we're just going to put that in like so.Now, you could tell that there's a little bit of side to side in here, and that's where these plates come into play. We're just gonna put one of those on either side like so. And now we can take the original tow hook hardware and install it just as if this was in the frame rail. And just like the other hardware, 18-millimeter socket and wrench for this. There's one more thing we're gonna do on this frame rail before we move on to the other side, and that is install our new mounting bracket, that's just gonna sit on the face of the frame rail just like so, and install with the original 15-millimeter hardware. Again, these are slotted so your bumper doesn't quite line up once you hold this thing up. You can always loosen these up and make an adjustment, come back and tighten this back down. Now, we're gonna tighten it down and aim for the middle right now but these take a 15-millimeter socket. Now, we're gonna repeat the same exact process for the other side. We're going to install the extender plate and both of the bolt plates, and tighten those down with 18-millimeter hardware.After that, we can grab our tow hook remove the foam, drop that in place, put the spacers on either side, and then come in with the factory 18-millimeter hardware to secure it to the bracket. After that we can install our mounting bracket with the 15-millimeter hardware. Now, we're ready to go. You can grab the bumper, we're just gonna line up the three holes on each bracket with the three holes on the bumper, and then secure it with the 16-millimeter hardware included in the kit. Now, after that, we're gonna get these three bolts started with the 16-millimeter hardware included in the kit, then we can align our bumpers and tighten these down to secure to the brackets. And we're gonna do the same thing for the other side. From there, we're just gonna rebuild our truck. We're gonna start with the grille, and that's just gonna clip into place like so, and then secure along the top with the four 10-millimeter bolts.Just to wrap things up here, we're gonna reinstall this plastic radiator cover like so. Now, we can secure it with all the push pins on the top. Guys, that's gonna do it for me. It's also gonna do it for the Barricade Extreme HD Front Bumper, fitting all '16, '17, and '18 Silverado 1500s. Thank you guys for watching. Subscribe.

        Will the side lights from my current 2016 silverado bumper fit this aftermarket bumper?

        Hello. I live in Wisconsin where they use a LOT of salt on the roads in the winter. How corrosion resistant is the Barricade Extreme bumper? Thanks.

        • The Barricade Extreme HD Front Bumper is corrosion resistant due to its powder coated finish, but to prevent corrosion in areas where extreme amounts of salt or brine are used, regular washing would be required.

            Heavyduty and low profile

            I appreciated the simplicity of how this bumper mounted to the frame of the truck, the ends of the bumper line up with the fenders pretty much flush - making it look more OEM. This bumper is heavy (100 lbs) and is very heavy duty, but has a low enough profile that it doesnt stick out like a traditional aftermarket bumper say like a Ranchhand. My reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that if you have fog lights on your OEM bumper they appear difficult to transfer to the Barricade Extreme HD because of the OEM housing and orientation (vertical vs horizontal for the fog light spots on the Barricade). Another thing I'll note is that for the extension brackets to mount the tow hooks cannot use the longer bolt and nut but can still be secured with the back bolt that screws threw the new extension bracket. Overall you and a buddy can knock this out in less than 2 hours. Very sharp looking bumper.

            3 2016 Custom - Disappointed Installation Time: Afternoon

            No support

            3 stars for the bumper, 1 star for support It arrived much faster than expected. The box was in decent condition when it arrived. Carrier left it with no signature needed despite what they told me over the phone. The packaging was top notch. The bumper was wrapped very well and there was plenty of styrofoam in the package. However upon inspection I noticed that the bumper had some areas where the coating was rubbed through to bare metal. Likely put in the box in that condition unfortunately judging by the good condition of the packaging upon arrival. I wrote an email to customer service which responded with an extension I should call for damage claims. I called and left 2 voicemails over the course of a few days requesting a call back and 2 weeks later I feel ignored. I went ahead with install figuring I would just make it work due to lack of support and nowhere to store this monster until I finally heard back. Unfortunately the kit plans to repurpose the stock tow hook bracket bolts since they have to be extended for this bumper. However, the extending brackets go on the outside of the stock mounting points making the stock bolts way too short. So now I have no front tow hooks until I find a fix. Big bummer. I’m also not excited with the fitment of the bumper, but you can see in the pictures how poorly it fits on the truck it is installed on so I will take the blame on that one. All in all, would not buy again and until I receive some sort of response from American trucks on this issue I won’t be shopping here again.

            2017 SIlverado Barricade Front Bumper

            Looks awesome, and matches up with all the body lines on the Fenders/Front Grill. Very aggressive look, without the overkill of most overly-aggressive bumpers. Install was easy, but you do need a second person to align it perfectly. 10 stars out of 10.
