Nope, didn't need too. The ride in the front is just a touch softer than it was before. I wanted a very slight rake to it anyway. Now I may have to do something with the additional weight of the winch when I get it.ryands650x said:Did you have to crank up the radflo's to adjust for the weight of that bumper?
Ya man, I'm looking for tires right now. To truly be worthy of Mad Max, I'll have to install some spikes or something...LOLSoBeGraphics said:wow reminds me of something out of mad max. definately need bigger rims/tires to balance it all out.
Kind of sounds like a cop out to me. My winch mount is rated at 12,000 lbs. It is just a winch mount (no grill) but it weighs in at just over 100 lbs. It is secured with 10 bolts, but only 4 of those are on the main frame itself. The other 6 are on the front crossbeam.kotackchi said:I asked them couple of months ago and they stated that Titans do not have enough strength in the frame to mount the bumper, so they cannot design one that's reliable.
The Buckstop is rated for a 16,500 lbs winch, how much stronger do you want it?! It also retained the stock bumper (under the plastic), and I'm sure the boxed frame is strong enough. Sounds like Warn was just making excuses not to produce one for the Titan, too bad I too would have been looking at them.kotackchi said:I wanted a heavy duty bumper too, but I prefer WARN bumpers without the grill. It looks much better than Buckstop, but WARN doesn't make one for Titan.

I think the air bags work off of deceleration, not impact. The air bags should still work. I wear a seat belt, so I would be happier they didn't go off in an accident (knock on wood). The only thing I had to remove was the original bumper and the factory brackets. The original "real bumper" that is behind the skin is still there.54warrior said:Did you retain your factory air bag sensors??? (this was asked on TT about your bumper, thought I'd go straight to the source!)
That's a good idea and may work for me if I can get it past the frame tabs. The holes I need to get nuts behind are the the four holes on the right of the wider framed photo. These holes are between two frame tabs that protrude from the frame horns.On my '07 the front crossmember was boxed, but as I recall, the ends were open.
For the install of my winch mount, a nut came welded to a length of metal dowel about 12" long. Here is a picture of it.
