That is badass! I like how it goes lower and help cover up part of the suspension instead if the stock 4x4 spoiler that is UGLY

Looks good and welcome to the club.

Question : What are your thoughts on the mounting system for the bumper? To me, the stock bumper was a lot more rigid and braced (8 bolts vs 6 for fusion). The mounting having to bolt to the bracket and then the bracket to the frame leaves two points of flex. With a 100# winch, it DOES flex.

But that fusion bumper is thicker than the stock isn't? So flex shouldn't be an issue?

Not exactly - there is only support at 90 degrees so nothing prevents the bumper from being pushed under whereas the stock bumper secures under the frame to add rigidity. With the winch installed I can push down on the bumper and have it bend lower. Mind you the bumper metal is not bending but instead the bracket metal

yea i wasnt happy with the crappy mounts. road armor has alot better mounting system than these do, but for the deal i got on this i couldnt pass it up. it looks like if i hit something the mounts wont hold the bumper on if its a good impact. i may design some new ones later on down the road when im not swamped with trucks in the shop

Agreed - really an aesthetic-only upgrade. If you do decide to put together some mounts that brace a bit more, Ill bite.

Also another note - not sure on your model but how close is your winch support to the radiator/intercooler? Im about .5" away so even a minor front end collision would likely damage the radiator.
