Q Sean Wilber • 02/17/2022, 9:38:24 PM What are the dimensions on the top of the bumper where the pre runner bars bolt in? Is it possible to mount more lights where the bar work would bolt on instead?
A 03/04/2022, 1:55:11 PM You could use the holes for lights. They are setup for 5/16 bolts.
Q w • 02/25/2022, 12:44:47 PM Is this compatible with Black Diamond Trim?
A 03/01/2022, 8:43:52 AM Yes

A 04/25/2022, 10:22:46 AM Yes, it will.
Q gwgeneral • 04/25/2022, 4:00:16 PM Will new bumper interfere with Ford copilot 360 technology ? I am not sure where the sensors are for 360. I do NOT have have adaptive cruise control but do have 360 degree camera capability and front proximity sensors. With pre-runner bar does camera need to be relocated, I will not have the winch just the pre-runner bar ?
A 04/25/2022, 4:59:26 PM The pre-runner bar will not block the camera view, but will be visible in the front camera view at the edges of the frame.
Q gwgeneral • 04/25/2022, 4:39:03 PM Is Ford CoPilot 360 collision warning and automatic breaking affected when new bumper is installed ? Or is that handled by the proximity sensors getting relocated into new bumper .. I have an Outer Banks with sensors in the bumper currently. Not sure if the square large panel in the button center of the bumper is being used since I do not have adaptive cruise control.. not sure if that is used for collision warning and auto braking.. I do have the High Package.
A 04/26/2022, 9:52:29 AM Without the LUX package and adaptive cruise, that will just be an empty box. You will just need to relocate the proximity sensors in the bumper to the new bumper. The rest of the functions are handled by the camera in the windshield.
Q JD • 05/18/2022, 0:00:23 AM Which is the Baja and which is the prerunner bar? A previous question doesn't explain which is which
A 05/18/2022, 2:26:44 PM The Prerunner is the mid height bar, with side tubes. The Baja is lower and has no side tubes.
Q Brian Brunow • 06/30/2022, 10:10:07 AM how does the strength compare between the steel and aluminum bumper, i see that the Aluminum is thicker but half the weight, but what about the strength. Which one will be more durable?
A 06/30/2022, 12:28:01 PM The steel option will be strongest/most durable. If weight is a big concern and you are only doing lighter wheeling, aluminum might be the way to go.
Q Alex Brown • 08/01/2022, 10:20:48 PM What are the dimensions of the winch cradle? I have an X-Bull 13k winch and I want to be sure it will fit before purchasing.
A 08/15/2022, 4:04:06 PM It will fit.
Q Eric • 08/17/2022, 6:30:07 PM What size winches are compatible with this bumper? Up to 12k? and are there limitations to the aluminum version?
A 08/23/2022, 2:01:59 PM We do our testing with 8K and 10K winches. Many 12k winches share a similar footprint, however.
Q Gabe • 10/07/2022, 12:53:23 PM Dumb question, but I drive in areas with lots of deer. Would the bull bar or prerunner actually survive an impact at highway speeds? I expect damage but need to make it home.
A 10/11/2022, 4:57:12 PM Any bar would certainly help your chances of a drivable vehicle after an animal impact, but we have no way of saying for certain that will 100% be the case with every impact.
Q ERNEST LAMOUNTAIN • 10/27/2022, 11:02:09 AM Is the aluminum bumper strong enough to use a winch for recovery with out damaging the bumper?
A 11/03/2022, 12:31:33 PM Yes.
Q Ken Schulte • 11/01/2022, 2:53:06 PM Will the Vanguard bumper fit on the BRaptor?
Does bumper change OEM approach angle?
A 11/03/2022, 1:04:20 PM It will fit the Bronco Raptor yes. It does stick out further to accommodate the winch, so that changes the approach angle, yes. If you don't need the winch, check out our Crusader bumper for a closer fit to the grille.
Q Ryan • 11/18/2022, 6:08:43 PM Does it come with the lights or are they sold separately?
A 11/28/2022, 10:35:43 AM They are sold separately.
Q Chris • 12/26/2022, 4:14:44 PM Which foglight and mounting set do you recommend or use with your Vanguard number? Does the mounting bolts for your bill bar interfere with mounting the fog lights?
A 01/03/2023, 2:56:24 PM No, the bolts don't interfere. We like the Baja Designs Squadron Sports as shown here: https://www.jcroffroad.com/product/5578XX.html
Q stephen • 01/10/2023, 6:11:28 AM will the vangurd front bumper adapt to be flat towed with blue ox tow bar system at tow points?
A 01/20/2023, 5:22:05 PM We haven't tested it at the shop, but as long as the tow bar will adapt to the d-ring mounts, it should work fine. We usually recommend your safety chains go directly to the frame of the vehicle.
Q Bob • 03/01/2023, 6:13:54 PM What is the diameter of the holes for the parking sensors?
A 03/13/2023, 4:14:43 PM 1.25"
Q Joseph • 03/02/2023, 9:21:39 PM Has the prerunner bar been modified to sit higher than the Bronco lettering, similar to the crusader tube work?
A 03/13/2023, 4:49:56 PM The pre-runner is as shown in the photos on both bumpers. Yes, it's taller on the Crusader.
Q Jared • 04/20/2023, 1:25:38 PM Will this bumper house a BADLAND APEX™ 12000lb?
A 05/01/2023, 11:44:54 AM Yes.
Q David • 05/03/2023, 3:30:06 PM I really like this bumper simply for the winch and it’ll match my Vanguard rear bumper BUT there’s not much room for lights. What do you recommend or have to mount lights onto the prerunner bar?
A 05/08/2023, 3:26:42 PM We like the Baja Designs Squadron Pro in the bumper for max output. But yes, you can install tube clamps and light mounts on the pre-runner bar as well.
Q Richard White • 05/23/2023, 12:37:20 PM I have a 4 door Lux Package. Will this bumper with the Prerunner tubes and winch work with the front camera, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control? Will I need to purchase relocation kits and if I do, can you provide part numbers?
A 05/24/2023, 10:45:51 AM The parking sensors would relocate into our bumper, however you would want to use our ACC relocation kit and camera relocation kit with that bumper.
Q Barry Beckemeyer • 08/02/2023, 5:40:53 PM What is the diameter of the the pre runner bars for clamp on light mounts?
A 08/03/2023, 2:44:30 PM The tube work is 1.75" in diameter.
