    Haven't seen this done before, so here goes. Since I don't plan on putting big lights in my All-Pro bumper, I needed to cover the big cutouts to protect the AC condenser from road debris.

    The mesh came powdercoated black from Customcargrilles.Com, with a hexagonal pattern similar to the main Toyota grille. Folded the mesh to fill the top cutout.

    Looks good :thumbsup:, but those spots you covered are for a winch and the outside ones are for lights :D

    I guess you don't plan on using a winch anytime soon? That's probably why you haven't seen anyone do this before.

    As for appearances, it's not really my cup of tea, kinda makes the front end look a little too busy...

    Just my .02 cents...

    On closer inspection,

    Why did you leave the lower portion of the bumper off?? (it has the All-Pro symbol etched in it)

    Kinda lost some additional coverage from "road debris"??

    The All-Pro valence panel (which doesn't protect anything) will go on once the IFS skid arrives.
