    We just received our new rear bumper from CBI and it looks wonderful! Ours is a dual swing-out with dual can holder, highlift mount, and fold down table (lots of bags of bolts, nuts, brackets, and assorted hardware). The fit, finish, and attention to detail is incredible. One detail they left out however are instructions on how it all goes together. Most of it is pretty simple to figure out but some, like the bearings and seal on the swing-out hinge, we're scratching our heads over.
    After over an hour of searching and pouring through past threads we're still at a loss.
    We found the pdf on their website showing how to bolt on the actual bumper but nothing more. We have an email into Nathan at CBI, I'm sure he'll get back to us with some answers. In the meantime we're looking for real-life experiences on the install and pics. Particularly of the cutline at the fenders, latch mount, attaching the highlift, etc. Also, options and suggestions on relocating the camera and license plate & light.
    We'll be showcasing the setup in one of our upcoming install videos, hence the need for detailed and accurate information. Any help and/or photos you can share would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's the video of the install.
    It all went extremely well!
    We did have to redirect the tailpipe out the side, but that
    was nothing a quick trip to the parts store to get a bend
    couldn't solve.

    Without searching and for the sake of brevity, does the OE receiver stay or is it removed to accommodate the CBI?

    I would think that it would be removed to improve departure angle, however after watching his video and the view from the ground up when under the rig, it almost looks like it is still there.... OP?
