    Big ones are King suspension, SSO bumper w/winch, Pelfreybuilt sliders.
    The suspension components are too exposed to road debris, and...no place for a winch. So I guess if you're not mounting one that's fine...but for $1700 you could get a full set of RCI skids and different front bumper...that's hard to justify passing up...

    It surely wasn’t the price that sold me haha! On a serious not, a few reasons: my truck is my daily (didn’t want something bulky/heavy), it comes with recovery points, since my truck is 4x2 I don’t feel the need to get anything with more perks. I’m not even getting lights installed because I feel I don’t need them.

    Just watched this and Holy crap that is awesome and looks like its built like a tank! All the points it connects up to the frame is awesome. It freaked me out when he made that cut into the front and fender, that part is sketchy, little room for error ya know?
    Totally worth that look tho! Do you think the front is protected enough? And the suspension and all that?

    Sounds to me like I need to make some friends at a fab shop cuz I dont think a bumper will be in my future or a while otherwise lol
