safarigard bumper install questions.

Just curious for the folks out there with a safarigard bumper, how did the install go?

It says on there web site you have to cut parts of the frame off and also have to take off cooler lines.

This stuff all true? Do you have to disconnect the cooler lines or drop them? any advice on install.

Jay


PS I did use the search button and didnt have luck finding exactly what I needed.

I removed the 'horns' with an angle grinder in about 10 minutes... very easy to do. I do not recall having to mess with cooler lines on a 94 ST.

Hope this helps.

Jason,

Thinking about this a little further you DO unbolt the lines and reattach after installation. Again, not difficult at all.

Cheers.

I had to cut the fram horns and the bottom off my grill and change to an aftermarket transmission cooler on my 97 ST. I have the brush bar that works with the Husky winch. I think the warn version is slightly different.

I had to cut one of the side tabs on each horn for mine to go on the 97 and the 94.

Hay I know this is an old thread but....I am installing the Safarigard bumper and skid on a 110 Tdi. In test fitting the bumper I had to cut the outer side tabs to get it to slide on to the frame rail. The question I have is it looks like to get the skid plate bracket to install I will have to cut a little more? Any suggestions?

The skid should not require any cutting, but I had to cut off the frame horns and relocate my trans cooler.

Thanks, I had to cut the frame extensions, jack point, to get the bumper on and to clear the skid.

Dopes anybody know what winch fits best? Looks like the warn wont work unless the brackets are modified. I will also need some recovery points. Looks like the bumper has two 5/8 holes.
