Today, I'm here with the Barricade extreme HD front bumper with LED fog lights fitting your 2018 and up F-150 excluding the Raptor models. As for the F-150 owner looking to change the appearance of their truck and want some protection of a full width heavy duty front bumper with some LED lighting. This heavy duty upgrade will provide plenty of protection for your front end making it perfect for street and trail use. It's aggressive angular plated design will give you better clearance allowing you to conquer those tough trails and the include high powered LED lights will make a huge difference in low light visibility. This is designed to be a direct bolt on swaps out easily with your bumper so there's no drilling or modification required and it comes complete is a kit with everything needed to install, you just need to wire up some lights. One thing I would like to mention, if you do live in a state that requires a front license plate, Barricade offers you with a bracket to mount that and it's relatively easy to install. Another thing I'd like to point out is if you have an EcoBoost model, Barricade recommends removing the two plates on the front of the bumper for increased airflow to your inner cooler. This is reasonably priced on the site as far as these bumpers go with LED lighting and it just around $800, I think it's a great deal and it even comes with a great three-year-warranty. As far as install goes, I'm going to give this one out of three wrenches since you can install this in about two hours using basic hand tools. Now, with that being said, let's hop into the install. So, to begin this installation, we're going to remove our factory bumper, there's going to be six nuts total holding this thing on. First thing we're going to do is crawl underneath and remove the two on the backside. So, you're going to have a nut on the backside, on both sides your bumper, we're going to use a 21-millimeter to remove them. And we'll do the same thing for the other side. So next, we're going to come out here to the front of the bumper, we're going to remove these little plastic panels since we need to access the nuts underneath, you can use a trim panel removal tool or any sort of pry tool to do that. So, we're just going to get underneath of this and pry up and out on it. Once we get that off, we're going to use a 21-millimeter socket to remove these two nuts in here. I'm going to do the same thing for the other side. And before you get that last nut off, you want to make sure that you have a nice hold in the bumper since it will move and possibly fall off. So, before we move our bumper completely, we need to disconnect our fog lights if you have them. So, we're going to pull this out slightly and just disconnect those on the backside. So, since our factory tow-hooks are not going to fit with our new bumper, we need to remove these covers and the tow-hooks as well. We're going to start popping this cover off then we'll use a 15-millimeters socket to move the bolts and these tow-hooks. Just pull down on the backside of these covers and then you can slide around for the front and we'll do the same thing for this other side. So next, we're going to install our bumper brackets to our frame for these top two holes up here, they're going to use these factory studs, I'm going to use factory nuts. For this bottom hole down here, we're going to actually use a hardware that they provided us, we'll get these installed, get the other ones installed and then tighten those up. So, for this bottom hole over here, we're going to use one of the larger bolts that are provided. We're going to place a washer on that, go through the backside then we'll get another washer and then a nylon lock nut. I'm going to do the same thing on the other side. So, after you get these brackets installed, we're going to tighten them up a little bit. Now, since there is a ton of adjustability in these brackets, we are not going to tighten them up all the way, we're just going to snug them a little bit since we'll probably have to move them when we get our bumper installed. So, we're going to use a 21-millimeter for these top two nuts. For this bottom hardware, we're going to use a 19-millimeter socket for the nut, and I'm going to use an 18-millimeter wrench for the bolt head. So, before we get this bumper installed, we're going to install our fog lights. This is not only going to make it easier for me to install these, but it's going to make it easier for you to see exactly how I'm doing this. So, the first thing we're going to do is attach our brackets to our fog lights, I'll show you how to do that now. So, the bracket you're going to get is going to have a slant. We're going to face that towards the back of our fog light and we're going to install this down through these outer two fins. Once we get that down and in there, you're going to need to slide this nut inside of there and then we're going to pass a bolt through everything and screw that into the nut. So, you see this little cut out down in here, you're going to need to drop the nut down in there and get it to line up with these two holes over here. Once you get the bolt to thread into that nut, we're going to use the provided and Allen key that they give us and we're just going to go ahead and tighten that up. Do that on both sides and then we'll get the other one assembled. So next, we're are going to use our mounting hardware provided and we're going to attach these little lights inside these N-pieces. There's going to be three slots on the top of these brackets. Since we're only doing a single light, we're just going to go right in the middle slot. So, we're going to pass this bolt up through our bracket and then we're going to hold that up in there while we get that in that slot. So, I'm going to put that up through, put our lock washer on and then the nut that they give us. And we can go ahead and tighten that down. So, we're going to censor these lights the best we can and we're going to use a 14-millimeter wrench to tighten that nut up. I'm going to do the same thing on the other side. So, the last thing we're going to do is take our plug and we're actually going to pass it through one of the three openings in the top of the screen. So, we finally got our bumper fully assembled. But before we get it installed, I want to tell you a little bit about this bumper or what it's going to do for you and how it compares to your stock one. Now, your stock bumper is made of steel, however, it's not very strong steel. This heavy duty bumper is made of solid steel plate construction and it's much stronger than the stock one. It has an aggressive angular plate design that's going to give you a very aggressive look and not only that, but it is wide as your truck. So, it's going to give you full frontal protection from end to end. It has a black powder coating which is not only going to give you aggressive off road look, it's going to give you corrosion resistance and protect your investment from the elements. Now, while removing this factory bumper, we are losing our fog lights. However, this new bumper is going to come with brand new high powered fog lights. These fog lights utilize 5 watts three LEDs, they're going to produce an intense 6,000K light that's very close to a white light. These are sealed up tight in a dicast aluminum housing and they feature a polycarbonate lens. This is going to make them very tough and durable, they're going to withstand all that trail debris that you encounter. Like I said these are sealed up tight and they have an IP rating of 67. This is going to allow you to submerge them for various periods of time without doing any internal damage. It's also going to keep them from condensating. This bumper is designed to be a direct bolt-on and we already have our frame brackets installed. So, with that being said, let's show you how to get this installed and what it looks like on the truck. So, we're ready to install our bumper, you want to make sure that you get the hardware ready and we get someone to help me pick this bumper and get it on. So, using the hardware provided, we're going to go ahead and take one of the bolts with a large flat washer on it and we're going to go through our bumper and through our frame mounted brackets. And then on the other side, we're going to do a washer, a lock washer and then our nut. So, we're going to do all three of these on this side and then we're going to go ahead and do the other side and you may need to press your bumper to give these holes to line up. Once you get all that hardware installed, you want to adjust your bumper to the height and center the best you can. And then we're going to go ahead and tighten everything up using a 16-millimeter socket and wrench. After you get those bolts tight, and since we left the frame brackets where they bolt to the frame loose, we're going to go ahead and use a 21-millimeter socket to tighten these top two. So, for the other bolt the we installed, we're going to use a 19-millimeter for the nut and an 18-millimeter for the bolt head, and we'll go ahead and tighten that up. And then we're going to do the same thing for the other side. So, the bumper is fully installed and the last thing we have to do is wire up these fog lights. Barricade provides you with a whole harness making it plug and play. So, the first thing we're going to do is going to start under our hood by the battery we're going to drop our plugs down through the engine bay to our bumper. So, we're going to sort this whole thing out. We'll get our switch and battery terminals set aside. We're going to take our switch and we'll just drape this over our engine because that's going to go over to our driver side. So, we're going to lay this right down in here and then we're to take these two ends, we're actually going to drop them right down here in between the rad support and the battery, there's a nice clear opening, we want to make sure that we're not getting them near any moving or hot parts. So, after we drop those two plugs through, the next thing we're going to do is wire this up to the battery. Now, you're going to have a red wire, that's going to be your 12 volt, it's going to go to your positive side of your battery. We're going to use an 11-millimeter socket to remove this nut. Now, you don't want to remove this nut is actually what holds this clamp tight on the battery terminal. We're going to remove this one here and then we'll install that end. Once you get that terminal on, we're just going to reinstall that nut and tighten it back up. Next, we're going to wire up our black wire on our switch to our negative terminal on the battery. We're going to remove this large nut here with a 13-millimeter socket, then we'll install this underneath and then reinstall it and tighten it up. So, we're to bring our switch across the engine bay, making sure once again to keep away from any hot or moving parts and we're going to come over here to our driver side, there's actually a plug in the fire wall that we can remove and pass the switch to the inside. After we get that through, we're going on the inside and pull it all the way through. We're going to go ahead and reach under here on the left side of the dash, so actually pull that the rest of the way out. Now, once you get this pull all the way through, it does have an adhesive backing, so all you have to do is pull this little backing piece off and you can stick it whatever you want inside truck. So, we're going to pull our harness all the way down through and then we're going to go over top of this frame extension on the side and then we're going to go over top of our frame right here. So, we'll plug this light in. So, we'll go across to the other side and plug the other light in. here. So, we're going to go across, over our frame rail and then we'll plug our other light in. So, at this point in time, you're ready to mount that relay wherever you want and make sure to zip tie all that excess wiring up and out of the way in a safe spot then you can close your hood. So, that's going to wrap up my review and install. For more videos like this, check this out in americantrucks.com.

Post sign protection.
I bought both front and rear for my "18" f-150. I had them installed. Looks great, and they fit perfectly. I backed into a street sign one night, but that did nothing to the rear bumper...not so much the sign. The stock plastic bumpers would have crumbled, and would have allowed damage the tailgate and the rear quarter panel. I'm happy with them. I recommend them! WaneiacHelpful (1)

After a fender bender I bought this. Ordered on monday. Arrived on Friday, installed Saturday. I have very few mechanical skills and actually had to go buy the tools needed to install. I did it with no help, took about 2 hours and loos great. Also you can keep the factory hooks but the get in the way tightening everything up. I also spliced the new led fog lights into my factory halogen wires no problem. Save the styrofoam from the box it's perfect for holding the bumper in place while installing. Definitely gonna but the rear to match.Helpful (1)

Amazing quality and extremely durable. Installed in about 3.5 hours but took longer because of lighting decisions and trying to connect to existing sources. Bumper fit perfect and was doable by one guy but recommend two men for the job.Helpful (7)

It took me about 2 hours to install, I did not hook the lights up when I installed everything, because I wanted it to be as factory as possible so I found an adapter to basically plug and play with my original wiring. The fitment of the bumper is amazing. Easy install with a friend. Definitely would recommend this to anyone wanting to give their truck more of an aggressive look!Helpful (5)
