Hey, guys. It's Sara with AmericanTrucks.com. And today we have a review and install of the Barricade HD Winch Front Bumper With LED Lighting, fitting your '16 to '18 Silverado 1500. This is perfect for the Silverado owner who's looking to upgrade their front bumper and wants a beefy steel option that includes lighting, a winch plate, D-rings as well as an over-rider hoop. This bumper features steel plate construction with a nice textured black powder coat finish as well as this over-rider hoop for additional protection and off-road style. It also features a built-in winch plate for the addition of up to a 12,000-pound capable winch down the road. It also features high-strength D-ring mounts and 9,500 pound rated D-rings. Also included with this bumper are two high-powered LED pod lights that come with its own wiring harness and switch. In addition inside the over-rider hoop are two mounting points for the addition of more lighting down the road.So as far as price goes, this option comes in at around $1,300, which is middle of the road price-wise when compared to other options. And for your money, you are getting a full-width steel front bumper that features that rugged off-road style and comes packed with features like the pod lights, winch mount, D-rings, and your over-rider hoop. And as far as the install goes, I'm giving this one a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It will require some minor wiring for the pod lights and some minor cutting if you choose to trim your wheel-well liners. All in all, it can be done within two hours. So let's check out the install. For this install, you'll need an impact gun or a ratchet will work just fine, 19, 18, 17, 15, and 10-millimeter sockets. You may also want an 18-millimeter ratcheting wrench. You'll need a pop clip removal tool, and you may also want a small extension or another cutting tool. All right. So the first step in our uninstall with your hood pop is to remove all of the pop clips that hold on your rad support cover. Grab a pop cup removal tool, or you can use a flathead screwdriver, and let's get these removed.With all of the pop clips removed, you can now grab your cover and remove it off the truck. Now we can see the four bolts on the top of our grille. We need to remove those with a 10-millimeter socket. With all of your bolts removed, you can grab the grille and pull back straight towards you to release all the clips. All right. Now that the grille is removed, we can see the bolts that we have to remove to take off your bumper. There are two on each side. One is up top here, and one is just on the inside of the frame down there. Grab an 18-millimeter socket and let's get these removed. Now, I just want to point out this one is an aftermarket replacement bolt. Yours will look like the factory one that we just removed.Repeat that on the other side. All right. Now we're moving on to underneath your bumper. These are the last two bolts holding it on so make sure when you're underneath it is supported. Now, these are also aftermarket. Yours will look more like the factory bolts. And these are 17 on our truck, so grab a 17-millimeter socket, and let's get these removed. Repeat that on the other side. Now that all of your bolts are removed, you can remove the bumper off of your truck. Now we also do have to remove the factory bumper brackets. There are three 15 millimeter bolts. So grab your 15-millimeter socket and let's get these removed. Repeat that on the other side.Next up, we're going to remove the bumper support bars. Now you don't have to remove these for install, but you may see these peeking out from behind your new bumper and they're not used so we're going to take them off. There are two 15-millimeter bolts right on the other side of the frame behind here. Let's get these removed. Repeat that on the other side.All right. Now that we have our factory bumper uninstalled from our truck, we can check it out with our new bumper here. Now, as you can see visually, they're very different from one another. This new bumper ditches that chrome in favor of a textured black powder coat. It also has some nice features like the lighting that is included, also features the over-rider hoop was brackets for additional lighting down the road. It has a winch plate, so you can mount up a winch directly to the bumper, and it does not use your factory tow hooks, but it has these D-rings included as a nice replacement. So with that said, let's finish up our install. All right. So before we can get our bumper installed, we do have to remove the tow hooks. So what you're going to need is an 18-millimeter wrench and an 18-millimeter socket, and let's get these off. We're going to remove the large through-bolt first. There's also a second 18-millimeter bolt. You can remove these in any order that you like. And repeat that for the other side. All right. Now we can bolt up these brackets to your truck. These are not the same, they are side specific and they are labeled. However, I recommend holding them up and just making sure that all the open holes line up with all five bolts.Once you have it up there, go ahead and thread in the factory hardware to the three threaded holes. Now we can install the two hex head bolts through the last two openings in your bracket. We're using washers, a lock washer, and a nut on the other side. Now install the other side with the same hardware. All right. With all of our bolts installed, we can now tighten them down. There is quite a bit of adjustment in this bracket. So if you do need to adjust your bumper, you can loosen these up and adjust it later on. Grab a 15-millimeter socket to start, and let's tighten these down. And with an 18-millimeter wrench and an 18-millimeter ratcheting wrench, go ahead and tighten down the other bolts. You can use a swivel, but I'm just using this one because it's kind of a tight area. And the wrenches will allow us to have a little bit more room. Now we can repeat that on the other side.Now with a 15-millimeter socket, tighten them down. Before we can get our bumper bolted up, you have to install these bolt plates through the brackets on the bumper. Go ahead and line them up and slide them into place. Repeat that on the other side. All right guys, at this point, you're going to want a friend to help you line it up and get the studs lined up with the open holes in your brackets so we can bolt it down. Once the studs are in place with a washer, lock washer, and nut, thread your hardware on the back of the bolts. And now with an 18-millimeter socket, go ahead and tighten these down. And then for the top, it is a tight space so we're going to use the 18-millimeter ratcheting wrench. And repeat that for the other side of your frame. And repeat that on your other mounting point.All right. Now we can route and plug in our wiring harness. This end of the harness is going to go to the pod lights and this end is where we need to give it power and ground. Now, there are tons of ways to do this. The easiest way and the way I like is to go straight to the battery. So if you have the room to do so, go ahead and go to your battery. If not, as long as you're getting power and ground to these wires, you should be fine. Now because of the style of the eyelet here, all you have to do is loosen the nut on top of the power side of your battery and slip it in. We're using a 10-millimeter socket. As long as the nut is loose, we can slide the power wire underneath. Now, there is one more power wire on here. This one wires the switch itself. You can grab power inside the cab, or you can hook this up to the battery as well. So that's what we're going to do here.Now that both of the eyelets are snugly underneath the positive terminal, go ahead and tighten it down with your 10-millimeter socket. Now we can repeat that process with the negative terminal. We're using our 10-millimeter socket to loosen it up. And I have a small extension on here just to get the ratchet a little farther away. Once it's loosened up, we're going to slide the negative eyelet underneath the nut. Now this one is quite a bit shorter, so it might be hard to see as I slide it in there. This will go the same way that the power wire went. And while we're routing these, this is a good time to mention to make sure all of your wiring is tucked up out of the way and secured away from anything hot or sharp.Now with our 10-millimeter socket, we can tighten this down. Now we're going to clean up our wiring a little bit. We do have to mount this relay. You can mount it with a self-tapper or on an existing bolt, or you can definitely just zip tie it up and out of the way. Again, as long as it's secured, that's all we're looking for here. Now we're routing our wiring harness down and behind our headlight. And because we have a longer tail on the pod light here, I pulled it up from the bumper and I'm going to plug it in right next to the headlight. Now we're routing the wiring harness to the other side and plugging in the other pod light as well. Now we're going to route this end for the switch into the cab. You can route this however you like, you can go through the firewall. I'm going to tuck it through this fender here and go into the passenger door. Again, as long as you're getting this into the cab, any route will work.Once you pull the wiring harness through, go ahead and plug it into the switch. You should see it illuminate at this point. You can test your lights and you can stick the switch wherever you like on your dashboard. We're going to stick it right here for now. Make sure you tuck up your wiring. At this point, we can replace our grille. Line it back up on the truck and press it into place. Now we can replace the bolts in the top of your grille. And with your 10-millimeter socket, tighten it down. Repeat that for the rest of your bolts. Now we can replace the rad support cover. Now we can replace all of the pop clips.At this point, we can install the D-rings. They've also included these rubber isolators to go on either side to help cut down on noise. So I'm going to slide those in now. Sort of press them into place. Once those are in place, you can line up your D-ring on either side and slide your bolt through. Repeat that for the other side. So I did want to point out one thing with this bumper because it is so high clearance, it does expose part of your factory wheel-well liners. If you don't like this look, you can definitely trim them down. We will not be cutting on our truck today, but if you would like to trim your liners, you can use a razor knife or a similar cutting tool and follow the line of your bumper just to cut off the excess piece. All right. So that is going to do it for the review and install of this bumper. And remember for all things Silverado, keep it at americantrucks.com.
