I just ordered the full width lowered winch version of the Rock hard 4x4 aluminum front bumper. Does anyone currently have one of these with the upgraded factory LED fog lights installed? Will the stock wiring be long enough, do I need any additional parts? Appreciate any advice in advance.

It all works. Nothing extra needed. I have the roch hard full width aluminum with lowered winch. It is awesome
Take apart old bumper, remove harness....install in new bumper
Thank you for the response Johnnymiz. I'll throw up a picture after it finally arrives and I get it installed.

Really easy install. Hardest thing will be sliding your hands in to fit the winch...the built in protection for the sway bars makes space tight. I cursed a bit because its frustratingly tight, BUT it is doable.
It is SO well made and the fit is perfect with no fiddling

Before and After bumper install. (Still need a winch)

One thing I've noticed, it sits 1/8th inch lower on the passenger side. Anyone know if there is an easy fix to even it out?

Thanks Johnny, I'll Measure again after work, but my original measurement looked like they were hung the same height on each side. It does look amazing in my opinion even with the slight height difference. Most people don't notice until I point it out lol.

so... stop pointing it out ;)
seriously, i am sure these things are machined on a jig to pretty tight tolerances whereas the fenders have some adjustment to how they are hung. you might find the fenders are hung slightly different from the factory creating the difference you only see when the new bumper is installed. with the original plastic bumper, you wont see 1/8" difference because of the large gap due to the straight design.
you could give the guys at rock hard a call

If this was a TJ, we'd say before any troubleshooting whatsover, it's the fenders. Notorious on the TJ.

Loosen all 8 bolts and lift up on the low side of the bumper. Retighten hardware.

This is what I'd do. There's enough clearance in the bolt holes to fix 1/8 inch, probably as much as 1/4 inch.
