Bumper received!

     After much confusion and many phone calls, we finally discovered that the bumper had been sitting at a local shipping dock for the past two weeks. Also, the passenger side of the bumper was sticking through the packaging.

     They have instructions for pre '03 models and '03+. They are both fairly simple and work great. I've done this on a '00 1/2 Silverado and a '04 3/4 ton Sierra.
