    I Just Won A Sw Mt 7.6 ON EBAY, That Came Off A 06 F150 And And Will Being Going Back On A O6 F150. I Was Planing On Doing The Mount Install Myself And Having The Local Dealer Do The Wiring. I Was Reading How To Install The Mount On The Truck And It Said I Had To Notch The Bumper. Do I Have To Cut Into The Chrome Bumper? Or Are They Talking About The Plastic Air Dam On The Bottom? I Dont Care Abot The Air Dam. If I Have To Notch The Bumper Is There A Way I Can Install It With Out Cutting My Bumper. I Will Be Going Out To Pick It Up On Sunday. I Just Bought The Truck With 20000 Miles And Dont Want To Start Hacking Up The Truck

    don't start cutting in the bumper until time to reinstall. You'll have to trim some of the fashia to allow for the side plates, but wait until you can use the mount as a guide for trimming.

    The mount install can be found here

    You Have To Cut The Steel Bumper Correct?

    As Soon As I Can Get It Mounted I Will Have It On Here And I Will Include Pictures Of The Timbrens I Am Going To Put On The Truck Too. Just Another Thought Should I Get The Mount Powder Coated Black Thats On The Truck?

    I wouldn't spend the money on powder coating. Some $.99 spray bomb cans each spring will keep the mount all nice and shiny.

    powder coating would be nice a can of shake n shoot isnt gonna last you would have to put about 20 coats on it to even last a little bit powder is gonna keep it from rusting or if you cant powder coat it take it to your local automotive paint shop and have them shoot it if they spray it., it will last longer then spray paint

    I Can Get The Powder Coat Done For About 50 Clams.
