    That one is At The Helm. I've been looking at SOS and Relentless Fab bumpers as well. I was going with standard, but screw it, let's just go high clearance from the get go! Relentless Fab has a 20% off sale that ends today. All 3 bumper companies are vendors here on TW.

    Yes. And yes. I'm super happy with mine.

    Despite what some still say many 16in rims work with them. Check out this thread and if you have questions let me know.

    Thanks for the feedback. I really like how the ATH and Relentless ones look from the side. Cost is all pretty comparable between 3 that I'm looking at as well.

    Is his hitch integrated or below the bumper? I've seen pics of both on the website. It may just be an option.

    Pretty sure it’s behind the tag like the SOS bumper. I can get pics from him

    Yes Sir I have, one of the best mods I have done on my truck, helps it stop a lot better for sure.

    Super easy, take off yours and the Tundra rotors and calipers bolt right on. You will have to trim the backing plate/dust shield a little because the Tundra calipers are longer. You will also need to get new brake lines or the Tundra hard lines. It goes over all this in the attached links, Here a link to the kit I got https://www.ebay.com/itm/Front-Brak...1-2002-2003-2006-Sequoia-Tundra-/282207142033

    And I hope these links help

    Some of the wheels will not work with the Tundra calipers because they are a good bit bigger, I had to use 1/4 inch spacers so mine would clear.

    So at a delima here. Ive really been doing alot of research into the 4x4 conversion and how much weight it is going to add to the truck. Its about an extra 225 pounds which is alot. That being said i need to lighten my current truck first before any more weight will be added. It will just be too much weight on the truck if i dont lighten it up. That being said im looking at getting a new front bumper in aluminium to save about 80lbs right off the bat. So it would be more like me driving around with the weight of my tent all the time which probably wont be that bad since there is no wind drag.

    Would anyone be interested in my front bumper? Ill give you a great deal on it. Probably wont be pulling the trigger on anything for at least a month or 2.

    Nope cause that would require all kinds of extra work that would cost a fortune. Transmission engine etc. Thats like atleast a 4 grand investment before labor lol

    Man, I'm about to pick up a rear bumper for my Inferno or I'd be interested. Your tent/rack setup is heavy, I don't get the RTT craze, that's a lot of unnecessary weight to lug around, especially if it's your daily driver. When yall are up in your RTTs, we'll be in our hammock/tarp or ground tent set up, snug as a bug in a rug!

    tried the whole ground tent thing and RTT is way more suited for me. I’m very picky on how I sleep. My body just won’t fall asleep. Plus Anna won’t sleep unless she’s away from the big lol. Was a win win.

    The sleeping pad makes all the difference in a ground tent. A zero degree mummy bag helps a lot too! I guess that's all we've ever known, has been hammock and tent camping. We know the ins and outs of camping in the back country.

    Sounds like it's time for a V6 4x4!
