Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from www.americanmuscle.com, and today I am bringing you my detailed review and breakdown of the Steel Craft HD Elevation Series Front Bumper, fitting your 2015 through current F-150. All right guys. So, in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this behemoth is going to appeal to, what you should be expecting in terms of the construction and materials, what you should expect to be paying. And then we're gonna take a very quick look at the installation, where I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and about two hours to get this onto your truck. All right, so the Steel Craft HD Elevation Front Bumper that I have with me here today is going to definitely appeal to a few different types of F-150 owners out there. And first and foremost, it's gonna be for the group of truck owners that are looking to provide their F-150 with a maximum amount of protection, as you're gonna be getting get away with a bumper, as well as a bolt-based grille guard. Now, the second group of owners out there is gonna be definitely for the truck owner that's using their truck either on a farm, job site or if you're looking to do some light to heavy duty off-roading. As again, you're gonna be getting 100% of front face protection with this bumper.So, taking a closer look at the materials here, we're gonna see that the guys over at Steel Craft are going to have this primarily comprised out of a full one piece design, that's gonna feature heavy duty plate steel as opposed to expanded metal. Additionally, we're gonna see that they're then gonna finish this off in a pretty trick looking black powder coated finish. Which in my opinion is gonna mesh both very nicely with light and dark colored trucks, or depending on wherever you're gonna be taking your build. All right, guys, so one quick thing that I do wanna point out that I really like about this option in comparison to some of the other alternative options out there, is that with this bumper, you're gonna have the ability to retain your factory fog lights, as well as your tow hook. So you're gonna have the ability to pull anybody out of a ditch if you have to.All right. So, in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending only about 980 bucks for this kit, and while that may seem a little bit on the steep side, you need to take into consideration that most, if not all, alternatives out there do have a tendency to easily double if not triple. Now, that's gonna be based upon the brand, the construction, and any other type of add-ons like a light bar that you may have. So, I do wanna point out again with this product, you are gonna be offering the maximum amount of protection for your brand new F-150. Again, you're not only gonna be getting a very heavy duty bumper up front, but you're going to be getting away with headlight protection as well as grille protection.All right, so switching gears and taking a look at the installation portion in the video, just like I had said in the beginning, you're to be looking at a solid one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and about two hours to get this onto your F-150. Now, while it's not completely necessary for most if not all parts on your truck to have a second or even a third set of hands, I would definitely suggest getting some buddies to help you get this onto your truck as it's gonna make your life a little bit easier at the end of the day. So, the easy installation here is definitely gonna be a huge selling point for any 2015 or newer F-150 owner out there as Steel Craft had this manufactured to install utilizing your factory bumper locations. Once your factory bumper's off, it's definitely gonna be a good idea to enlist the help of some friends to help you assemble the brackets. Once those are completed, simply walk the bumper over to your truck, have somebody get underneath to tighten everything down, and then once that's done, remove your factory fog lights, and then have them installed over on your new bumper, and you're good to go.All right, guys. So, just to wrap things up, here's some final thoughts. I definitely like this option from Steel Craft based on a couple different reasons here. First and foremost, we're gonna see these guys bringing up the rear of the segment in terms of pricing, and again what you're gonna be getting is 100% full bumper coverage. Again, you're going to be protecting your center grille, as well as your headlights. Not only that, you're gonna be getting away with one of the most badass and aggressive looking bumpers available for your F-150 today. All right, guys. So, that's my quick review and breakdown of the Steel Craft HD Elevation Series Front Bumper, fitting your 2015 through current F-150 available right here at www.americanmuscle.com.

          best bumper/steelcraft

          put one on my sons 12 f150. he drivers back and forth from heber utah to no dakota has hit several deer with his 02 f250 over the years with the ranchand bumper and it just explodes them so I tried the steelcraft bumper on 2012 f150. has allready hit a deer with it with no damage at all this bumper is the best built bumper I have ever seen. mounts are stronger than the other bumpers out there.I think you could lift the whole truck with it very impressed . going to put one on my 15 f150 as soon as they get it in stock again. best investment you will ever make.first deer you hit will save you 5 times the money it cost just in time and repairs.not to mention the time without your truck while it's being repaired

          Grill guard

          Delivered in less than a week. Easy install for one person for 4hrs. Caution many smashed fingers and new vocabulary will take place. Grill guard very sturdy and looks great on my f150. Great people to buy from.

          Great Bumper

          The Bumper is great. Was a little tricky to install but once everything was lined up it was not too bad. Leveling and final tightening was the most difficult part of the install. I am pleased with the bumper and how it looks on the truck. The fog light mounting was new from the installation packet that i printed off from online. Overall great looking bumper and easy to install. would recommend at least 3 people to install.

          Front Bumper

          I bought this grill and had the company (Steel Craft) ship it to me. I read the terms on shipping and saw I had to review the package before excepting it. I did so and saw no visible problems. The grill was covered in 5 layers of different wrapping so I left the last layers on to protect scratches while getting it ready to install. I had one bolt on each side holding up the grill on my pick up before I took the wrap off. The passenger side top bar was dented an inch down with zero scratches or scuffs on it. Meaning the damage happend with all the packaging on it. I called the customer service center and went through 5 people over 4 hours to get an answer. First guy said full replacement of product. He just needed pictures emailed to them. Next guy said we can't replace the bumper because it's looks completely installed on your pick up. Third and fourth guy said we will give you $50 in-store refund. Last guy said the best he can do is refund my bank account $100 to keep me as a customer. If I had completely unwrapped all five layers of the product ,before the delivery driver had left, I would have gotten a new bumper. I will not do business with Steal Craft again because of their customer service.

          Looks great!

          Just got it installed today! Had it done by our local shop since I also had a light bar with a switch installed in the cab. Very sturdy! I hit a lot of deer unfortunately driving back and forth to the local hospital. Plus the area for the light bar fit perfectly which will also help me see down the road a lot better! Very happy with this purchase, especially at the price!
