    Hello everyone - I have a picture request. I'm looking for pictures of a 2007-2013 Silverado 1500 with bumper notching to accommodate the UltraMount setup. I've found a picture on this site with a Sierra, but I'm looking for a Silverado specifically. I've also seen pictures of the Fisher setup on a Silverado 1500, but I'm considering the HTS because the bumper notching seems less intrusive compared to a Fisher Minute Mount setup. Just want to get a better idea of what I need to do for the bumper notching. Thanks in advance!

    There is less cutting on the western install,try looking up the installation instructions for that year truck on westerns website,there should be a picture toward the end of the instructions.

    I have never needed to cut into the metal of the bumper, only the plastic air dam. Some owners request no notching in which case we remove the air dam from the bottom of the bumper altogether. When I do cut I use a pneumatic reciprocating saw. No big deal.
