Hey. What's up, guys? I'm Ryan from American Trucks and today, I'm here with the RedRock Off-Road Tubular front bumper with 30-inch LED light bar 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 epic, trophy truck look with some LED lighting. This is a great upgrade over the stock front bumper since it's much more appealing and it's a lot stronger. This bumper's design provides additional ground clearance, increasing your F-150's capability, allowing you to conquer those tough trails.This bumper comes with a 30-inch LED light bar and harness making it very easy to install, wire up, and it's really gonna come in handy for those nighttime trail rides. This bumper is made of heavy-duty steel plating and tubing, and it's a full-width bumper so it's gonna provide plenty of protection for the front end. The black powder coating is gonna provide an aggressive look and it's also gonna provide corrosion resistance for your investment.Now, this bumper comes as a complete kit with everything needed to install and it even reuses some factory hardware and mounting holes so there's no drilling or modification required. This bumper is reasonably priced on the site as far as these tubular bumpers go and at just around $650, I think that is a great deal considering what you're getting, the construction, materials, and the fitment. One thing I would like to mention, if you do live in a state that requires a front-mounted license plate, RedRock provides all of the hardware and brackets needed to do so. 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, let's hop into our install.To begin this installation, we're gonna start by removing our front bumper but first, we're gonna disconnect our fog lights. So we're gonna 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 back side 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 we do need to do some assembly on this bumper and the first thing we're gonna do is install our light bar. So you're gonna have two brackets provided by RedRock and some hardware to do that and these brackets are actually gonna attach to this inner rail that's welded to the bumper. Then we're gonna attach our light bar to the bracket, so I'm gonna show you how to do that now. So we're gonna open up our little bags of hardware and we're gonna take one of our bolts provided, we're gonna place a flat washer on there. This is gonna go down through the bracket. We're gonna face this L outwards and this is gonna go into that rail. So once we drop that bolt through, on the bottom, we're gonna get a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. And we're gonna slide this bracket over a little bit and then we'll get the other side down. So now that both brackets are installed, we're gonna fit this light bar in. We're gonna have to fit the light bar in through the front of the bumper, so we're just gonna tilt this back a little bit and then slide this under and in. Did not go as smoothly as planned. Once we have that in, we're gonna go ahead and drop that back down and then we'll attach our brackets. So we're gonna lift our light bar up, line it up with this bracket here, and then we're gonna take a bolt with a lock washer and a flat washer and we're gonna screw that into the end. Then we'll do the same thing for the other side. Once you get all of that hardware installed, we're gonna go ahead and line our light bar up in this opening the best we can. Once we line it up and get it where we want it, we're gonna go around with a half-inch wrench and tighten everything up. I'm gonna start with the bolts on our light bar. Then we'll go ahead and tighten up our brackets. So next thing, since we're reusing our factory bolt plate, you'll need to remove that from your bumper. We're gonna install this on the back side of our bumper and we'll use the new plastic retainers from RedRock to hold that in place. So you're just gonna insert this from the back side and then firmly press these all the way down so they hold that in place, then we'll do the other side. So our stock bumper is completely uninstalled and our new bumper is fully assembled with our 30-inch light bar, but before we get it installed, I wanna take a few moments to go over what this is made of, what it's gonna do for you, and how it compares to your stock one. Now your stock one is made out of steel and it's relatively strong, however, it is a little bulky in design and it's not very aggressive looking. If you're looking for a little more strength, a little more clearance, and a little more of an aggressive look, you'll wanna look at something such as this aftermarket bumper from RedRock here. Now, this bumper is a high clearance bumper and it has tapered ends. This is gonna clear up that wheel well area and it's gonna give you much better approach angles and more clearance to tackle those tougher trails. This bumper is also a full-width bumper so just like your factory bumper, it's going to protect the whole front end, keeping it safe while you're on those trails. This makes it perfect for street and trail use. Now removing our stock bumper, we are getting rid of our factory fog lights. However, we're introducing and adding a 30-inch light bar. This is going to make a huge difference in low-light visibility and allow you to see even on the darkest trails. And this light bar utilizes Cree LEDs. These LEDs produce an intense 6000k light, that is pretty close to white so it's gonna be a very bright white light. Now the housing is made from durable aluminum and has a polycarbonate lens. This is gonna make it very tough and it's gonna handle all of that trail debris and anything that you encounter. The whole thing is sealed up watertight and has an IP rating of 67. This will allow you to submerge this for short amounts of time without doing any internal damage and it's not gonna build condensation. So we already have our bolt plates installed. All we have to do is bolt this onto the truck and wire up that light bar. So let's show you how to do this and what it looks like on the truck. So at this point in time, you're ready to install your bumper. You wanna make sure that the nuts you removed from your factory bumper are there ready and waiting to be installed. And I'm gonna grab a friend to help me pick this up. We're gonna go around and install all of our factory nuts. Once you get the last nut on, we're gonna center, adjust, and tighten our bumper using a 21-millimeter socket. So the last step in installing this bumper, we need to wire up our fog light. Luckily, RedRock has provided us with a harness, so we just have to hook it up to the battery, run it down to the fog light, and run a switch into the cab. So the first thing we're gonna do is we're gonna take this switch, we're gonna drape it across the engine bay. So next thing we're gonna do is we're gonna drop this plug down to our fog lights. We're gonna make sure that we stay away from any hot and moving parts when we do this. So I'm gonna go right in between the rad support and the battery and this is gonna wind up going right behind the headlight. Pull this out some and then we'll drop it the rest of the way down.So the next thing we're gonna do is we're gonna hook this up to our battery. So you're gonna have a red wire, this is gonna go to our positive terminal which is also red on our battery. And this is gonna be your negative wire. That's gonna go to the negative side. So we're gonna do our positive first. We're gonna pull this little rubber shield out of the way and we're gonna go straight for this 10-millimeter right here. Now you don't wanna do this one here. This is a slightly smaller nut and this actually clamps that onto the battery and holds that terminal tight. So we're gonna disconnect this and while you're disconnecting this, you wanna make sure that you do not touch any grounds. Next, we're gonna do our negative side. Once again, we're gonna use a 10-millimeter socket to remove this nut and install this terminal. So next we're gonna run our switch across the engine bay over to our driver's side since there's a plug down here in the firewall that we can remove and pass this switch to the inside. So we can go ahead and just reach up under the dash and pull this switch out. So now since you have the switch inside of the cab and since this has an adhesive backing, you can go ahead and peel that off and stick it wherever you'd like. So next we're gonna pull our harness down and our plug off of our light bar over top of our frame rail and we'll just plug this together. Then you'll wanna go and zip tie all this excess up and out of the way. So the last thing you'll wanna do is make sure that that wire going across your engine bay is zip tied up and secure away from any hot and moving parts. And then you can mount your relay however you would like, then close your hood. So that's gonna wrap up my review and install. For more videos like this, check us out at americantrucks.com.
