    Yes, 1/2" is the correct size drill bit. We switched to that after realizing that 5/8" is not a common size drill bit. One of the bolts attaching the bumper to the frame may need to be flipped for a better fit on some vehicles. That is on the passenger side, closer to the rear of the vehicle if memory serves correctly. Feel free to post any pictures, questions, or call us if you need help!

    I noticed some of u used the 1/2" (video) drill bit instead 5/8" (instruction). Is there any other issues going with 1/2"? I just realized I don't have a 5/8" drill bit in my tool box, but can run to store for one if that's a better fit.
    LOD feel free to reply as this help customers clear up on which drill bit to use. Thanks in advance.

    Actually one more question, looking at the instruction, this part where the long bolts that go vertically was not tightened at all in the instruction. I'm guessing it was just missed?Screenshot_20170419-120758.jpg

    Yes, not exactly missed though, those are just additional reinforcement mount points for people who want it to be super sturdy. We recommend using all the bolts supplied in the kit, there should be enough to get those two holes as well.

    Fellas, I have another question, I'm running 37"x12.5x17 4.5bs. What's a good starting point for height and length setup for the tire mount. Again, Thanks in advance😀

    Does this go for the gen 3 bumper and carrier as well. I think mine makes contact when almost close. It rattles a little.

    Honestly not sure, we tested ours with a 35" but accounted for up to a 40", so you usually have a pretty wide range of height adjustment High or low depends on if you want to see anything out of your back window or not You could always start with the highest mount points and then lower it as needed. That way you won't have to lift it higher as you get tired

    If I remember correctly, there are four slots for vertical adjustment. The way I thought about it was bottom slot is 33" tire, then 35", 37", and 40" in the top slot.
