  • 2.

    3.The stock skidplate can be removed before or after the front bumper.

    The skidplate bolt locations are highlighted here (13mm + 15mm sockets)

  • 4.

    Remove the plastic center insert. It is attached with trim

    clips. To remove it gently pull away from the vehicle.

    Lay under the truck. On the inside of the bumper, on both sides, there is a brace that will need to be removed, the 8mm bolts are

    circled.5.

  • There will be a nut on the back near the mount as well

    Remove the front two nuts, repeat on both sides.

    After you remove the three nuts on both sides, carefully remove the bumper from the car.

    Remove the plastic towhook shroud on both driver and passenger sides by pulling.

    6.

    7.

    8.

  • Remove the towhook, there are two bolts underneath. To reach the nutsert you may have to reach into the front opening.

    Remove the tab behind the tow hook as well, there is one bolt.

    9.

    10.

  • The mount has to be placed into position from slightly under the vehicle.

    Tighten these before the other bolts, that will push

    the mount into place.!

    Like the stock mounts, make sure you attach these with two stock bolts (circled) and nuts on top, and also one provided lower bolt (box)

    11.

    12.

  • The diagram show the proper bolt attachment via a toothed washer. Attach

    only one into the truck mount first.

    *IF NOT USING A WINCH, IF YES REFER TO BOTTOM OF PAGE*

    On the bumper insert the bolt into the bottom hole, facing towards the vehicle.

    If you plan on running a winch, please see the section at the rear for proper placement procedures.

    STOP

    13.

    14.

  • If you wont be using a winch, mark and cut off only the soft, flexible rubber section, so there is about an inch of rubber shroud left.

    Attach your lights to the center panel and foglight bezels if you have them, then attach the panels to the car via the studs and

    nuts.

    15.

    16.

  • Line up the bolts and the mount holes and carefully

    place the bumper on the vehicle. Be careful to not scratch the body. Having

    a second person will help.

    Look underneath the bumper, there are access

    holes (circled) on either side of the mount, so you can place a wrench on the bolt head, and a socket or

    other wrench on the nut.

    Keep applying pressure on the bumper, otherwise you risk it falling off. Attach it to the mount bolts with the provided nuts

    17.

    18.

  • Thats it! Once the bumper is on and the mount hardware is tightened, youre set to go!

  • WINCHINSTALLATION

    The following steps illustrate how to properly

    and safely install the winch plate and a winch, to be used with the Ford

    Raptor Bumper

    Attach your winch to the winchplate. The winch should have four (4) mount holes. Use the bolts supplied with the winch. Tighten and torque these thoroughly, as they will be holding your

    winch in place during operation.

    1.

  • Trim the rubber shroud along the dotted line, so it is as close to flush with the surface it protrudes from. The rubber is harder towards the base, you will need to use a cutting wheel or

    grinder.

    When finished the shroud should look like this. You can now fit a winch between the bumper and the truck.

    2.

    3.

  • For this step it is a good idea to have two people, as the winch is heavy.

    Insert the two upper bolts as shown, and you can

    rest the winch plate on top of them while you place the bumper over the winch plate.

    *BE CAREFUL, THE WINCHPLATE IS HEAVY AND

    CAN STILL FALL*

    Keep applying pressure on the bumper, otherwise you

    risk it falling off.

    4.

    5.Next, place the bumper

    over the winch plate and then place nuts onto the studs from the previous

    step.

    When this is complete, you may return to STEP 15 in the install guide.
