Hey guys, what's up? I'm Ryan from AmericanTrucks and today I'm here with the RedRock 4x4 Off-Road Tubular Front Bumper, fitting your 2009 to 2014 F-150, excluding the Raptor models. This is for the F-150 owner that is looking for an aggressive tubular front bumper to give their rig that trophy truck look and better approach angles on the trails. This is a great upgrade over the stock front bumper as it's more appealing and it's a lot stronger. Its design provides additional ground clearance, increasing your F-150's capability for those tough trails while providing full frontal protection. This is made of heavy-duty steel plating and tubing for strength and rigidity and has an aggressive black powder coating that's going to provide plenty of corrosion resistance. This particular bumper comes with a block off plate that can be removed and allows the addition of a 30-inch light bar. One thing I would like to mention if you live in a state that requires a front mounted license plate, RedRock provides you with a bracket and hardware to do so. This bumper comes as a complete kit and is a very easy install as it reuses some of the factory hardware and mounting points, so there's no drilling or modification required. This bumper is reasonably priced for and aggressive tubular front bumper, especially when compared to other options that can cost up to three times as much. At just around $550, I think this is a great deal for this bumper considering the construction, quality and fitment. As far as install goes I'm gonna 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 lets hop into the install. To begin this installation we're gonna start by removing our front bumper but first we're gonna disconnect our fog lights. So when you go to the back side of our fog light, find our fog light harness. We're gonna pull back on these black tabs and slide that down. Then we'll do the same thing for the other side. Next we're gonna go on the backside of our frame rail and take off the two nuts on both sides with a 21-millimeter socket. We'll do the same thing on the other frame rail. So we're gonna remove this last nut. At this point in time it would be a good idea to have someone hold onto the bumper since the bumper is ready to come off. At this point in time you're ready to remove your bumper. So with our stock bumper uninstalled we're just about ready to install our new RedRock bumper. However before we do that I wanna go over what this thing is made of, what its gonna do for you and how it compares to your stock bumper. Now the stock bumper is made of steel and it's relatively strong, however it is a little bulky in design and also it's chrome. I'm not a huge fan of chrome and for those of you out there that are looking to tone it down a little bit and add a more aggressive look, you wanna look at something such as this tubular bumper here. Now this bumper is a very strong and sturdy upgrade. It's gonna give your truck a very aggressive look and not only that but it's high clearance and it has high cut corners. These corners are gonna provide great approach angles and they're gonna give you a lot better clearance for when you're tackling those trails and it's gonna make it a lot easier. This bumper is made of heavy-duty steel plate and has mandrel bent tubing, so it's very strong and it's structurally sound. It has a black powder coating, it's very durable and it also adds to that aggressive off-road styling but it's gonna provide plenty of corrosion resistance as well. Now this particular bumper we installed a block off plate. However if you do wanna upgrade to a light bar in the future this thing will fit a 30-inch light bar. So with that being said let's show you how this kit is installed and what it looks like on the truck. So next we're gonna install our block off plate. We're gonna use these provided 90-degree L brackets to attached to a rail, there's a welded rail in here. And they gave us some hardware so we're gonna start off with these brackets, I'll show you how to do that now. Using the bolts provided, we're gonna go ahead and put a flat washer on those. We're gonna go down through our bracket and we're actually gonna come in here to the rail, put a flat washer on there and that's actually gonna go through this L bracket and then into our welded rail. Then on the bottom we're just gonna do a flat washer, a lock washer and a nut. All right, then we'll get our other L-bracket installed. So the next thing we're gonna do is install our block off plate. We need to tilt our bumper up and insert this from the front, that's the only way it'll fit. Once we got that in place you can you lower the bumper down, then we'll install the rest of our hardware. Gonna take one the provided bolts with a another flat washer, we're gonna go through the block off plate into our bracket and then we'll do another flat washer, a lock washer and a nut on the backside. Then we'll do the same thing on the other side of the block off plate. So after you get all that hardware installed, you want to center this block off plate the best you can and then we're gonna tighten everything up using a series of half-inch wrenches. So like I had previously stated, we're gonna be reusing the factory bolt plates on our bumper, so you'll need to remove those. Now RedRock gives you brand new plastic washers, these are to hold these bolt plates into your new bumper. So what we're gonna do is just insert this from the back side and then slip these little plastic washers on. So just place them over top, we're gonna press them all the way down so they'll hold those bolt plates nice and tight into our new bumper. Makes it a lot easier to get it on and not have these fall out. So at this point in time we're ready to install our bumper and I'm gonna get a friend to lend me a hand. So once you get the bumper on we're gonna reinstall those nuts we removed when we took the factory bumper off. So since these holes are slotted we're gonna go ahead and raise the bumper up to sit where we want it and then we'll tighten everything up using that 21-millimeter socket. So that's going to wrap up my review and install. For more videos like this, check us out at americantrucks.com.
