Review & Install Video
Hey, guys, Alex from americanmuscle.com, and today, I'm bringing my detailed review and breakdown of the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper with Integrated LED Lights fitting the 2006 through 2014 F-150. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this bumper is going to appeal to, the construction and materials that went into this behemoth, what you should expect to be spending. And then what it's gonna take to get this onto your truck where I'm going to be giving this a pretty easy one out of the three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor, and I'll have a little bit more for you on that later.So the Barricade Extreme HD rear bumper that I have here today should definitely appeal to any F-150 owner out there that's gonna be looking a get into a very budget-friendy and aggressive-looking option. It's gonna give your truck that much more functionality as this is going to have built-in steps right into this bumper, something that I personally love, would have had to have on my own truck from the factory. Not only that, you're gonna be getting away with a pair of three-inch pods which are gonna help throw some light out back no matter if you're gonna be on the job site or you just need to throw a little bit of extra light on the trails.So in terms of the construction and materials here, guys, it's evident, right out of the box, that this is definitely a very well-built piece of equipment. And that's gonna range from just what I'm seeing behind here which is difficult for you guys but it's gonna be the welding, the two-stage finish, and again, the functionality here of having steps built into the sides as well as having the spaces for the LED lights right here. But down to brass tacks, we'll see that this is gonna be comprised out of three-millimeter-thick plate steel which is then gonna be finished off in a two-stage process. Now, the first is gonna be an epoxy coating up top. Second is going to be is a very, very cool looking texture black-powdered coating finish which is typically the norm of what you're gonna see with most, if not all, front and rear bumpers. That's not only there to make this look good but to ensure that it's gonna hold up over time in regards to anything that you're gonna be putting your truck through or just the elements. So in terms of the lights themselves, we're gonna see that they're gonna be comprised out of an aluminum housing. That's gonna have a polycarbonate lens internally. They're gonna be outfitted with Cree SMD LED chips which if you've picked up an LED flashlight in the past couple of years, chances are that's been outfitted with a Cree chip. Now, those are gonna be rated at about 6000k, and believe me when I tell you that they definitely do throw a ton of light. Again, that's gonna be great for someone that's gonna be using their truck either on a job site, maybe farm, or if you're gonna be hitting the trails at night. Again, it's gonna give you the ability to throw a little bit of light out back. Now depending on where you wanna wire these into, you honestly could break these into your reverse lighting circuit. That's gonna help you throw more light when you're backing up, or if you wanna run them independently, this will come with an auxiliary switch right down here which you can run into your cabin to activate them.Now another couple of things that I do like about this, again, this will have indentations for a foothold here which I can't tell you how helpful they're gonna be if you need to get into your truck really quickly. It's something that I honestly wished my 2014 had from the factory. Aside from that, you will have holes for your backup sensors right here, and you will have the ability to retain your factory backup camera.So in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending only about 800 bucks for this bumper, to my opinion, is incredibly budget-friendly in comparison to some of the other options out there which can easily surpass a thousand dollars. Now, for the money here, you're gonna be getting away with some really impressive and aggressive looks, quality materials, the rear lights. And not only that, again, you're gonna have the footholds here which I can't tell you enough, these alone would be more than enough for me to pull the trigger on this bumper alone.And the ease of installation here should definitely be a huge selling point for any truck owner out there as Barricade had this manufactured for someone that did not wanna do any type of cutting, welding, or fabrication to get this onto your truck. This is going to install utilizing your factory rear bumper mounting points, little bit of elbow grease, and maybe a case of beer. But looking ahead, I would definitely suggest getting a couple different set of hands to help you as this is a little bit on the heavier side and you will thank yourself later. Now, most, if not all the installation, is gonna be removing your rear bumper but once that's off, this is going to fit very snugly and very easily on with the help of a couple extra hands. Again, you're not looking at anything nuts here, just to have that additional help to get this into place. Tighten everything down, and you're good to go.All right, guys. So just to wrap things up, here's some final thoughts. If you're the F-150 owner that's just not too thrilled with how mundane your rear bumper is. You're looking to get into something that's not only gonna look that much more aggressive than what you have from the factory but something that's gonna throw light and absolutely give you the ability to get into your truck that much more easy, I would definitely suggest checking this out for your build.So that's my detailed review and breakdown of the Barricade Extreme HD Rear Bumper with LED Lighting fitting the 2006 through 2014 F-150 available right here at americanmuscle.com.
