Default Does anyone have a N-Fab Prerunner bumper or similar?

I've been looking at this bumper and have the tools to build one myself and save some money. My only question is how it is mounted to the truck. (I want it to be a Bolt-On)I'm under the assumption its at the front of the frame rails where the factory tow-hooks bolt up. Any close up pictures of this bumper or if anyone has a similar setup would be greatly appreciated. BTW here is a picture of the N-Fab bumper.
Thanks,
Kenny

I don't have 1, nor do I know how it's mounted. But I'm going to take a guess and say they took off the factory tow hooks and welded a bracket so it bolts on where the tow hooks did. If you are willing to risk losing the tow hooks and bolt it there, go for it. But I would try to mount it so you can keep your tow hooks. You could drill into your frame and bolt it up. Plenty of space.

I have the N-fab prerunner light bar on my truck and it bolts to your bumper you need to drill 4 hole and it bolts right up. I'm actually really surprised at how strong it really is.

I dont know how the N-fab one is held on but I have seen a few up close some are just bolted to the frame rails and others are welded. after looking at pictures on their website that thing looks terrible. if you have a bender and welder u should definatly try to build your own. I would ditch the bumper behind the tubing and throw a skid plate on there

I am also looking at a N-Fab full replacement bumper for my truck,

Description:
09-11 Ford F150 R.S.P. Series Replacement Bumper

Replaces the lower metal section of the factory bumper

Comes with a 3/16" aluminum skid plate

Bolts directly to factory bumper mount on the frame horns

Its about $1000 but looks nice.
