The company I ordered mine from is NorCal trucks. I called them a few weeks ago to check on the status of my mounts. They don't actually manufacture the mounts themselves so they are at the mercy of others. They told me the mounts had been made and sent to the powder coater to be painted. I should have them in hand in about another week or so. I will post pics when I do the install with lots of pics. @Burden33 has mounted a 50 inch bar on his truck and I am looking forward to the advice he has on switch location. If you have any questions that I may be able to help with just let me know.
Just got an email from NorCal trucks. Brackets are in the mail!!!!

aloxdaddy99- I couldn't wait to order the brackets, so I just drilled a new set of bolt holes for mine. Although, having the smaller brackets would have made my install a lot easier. I posted a couple of pictures if you're interested. Just FYI, there is barely room in the air-dam area as it is, and installing the 20" light bar is a BITCH w/o pulling the bumper.
I hope your install goes a lot smoother than mine did. Good luck!

SurrealOne Have you noticed any increase in operating temperature since install? It appears that more than half of the slots are somewhat blocked from the lights. Just curious as I may be interested in mounting a bar behind my grille that I installed(with no noticeable increase in temp. noted) in that slot.

The person to ask would be @SeanBurgandy, as he's got a NNBS truck, like you, and I don't think he's done the kind of cooling mods I've done. @aloxdaddy99 would be a close second, as his radiator is OEM but he's upgraded his tranny cooler to the Tru Cool 40K GVWR, as well. Either should be able to provide a closer benchmark than I can once they've run with their bars installed for a while. (Also note that you'd likely be installing the same 20" bar they are using, so again ... a closer guestimate than I can provide since my bars and airflow through the bumper slot are different from yours/theirs.)
