    uhhh... yeah you do. You need to cut out the section where that metal portion goes. Same as the following bumpers...

    Warn - least amount of cutting, but also bulky and ugly... IMHO

    You have to cut for ours, but the portion you cut would be hidden under the plastic bumper cover if you went back to stock.
    https://www.victory4x4.com/product/VT3FB-0.html

    If going back to stock was something you wanted (needed) to do, I would use 3m paint protection film on any paint surface that the bumper covers. That way the paint will stay pristine even if it happens to rub anywhere.

    The very first post I typed up I provided a link, if you fast forward it to the 3:00 minute mark you hear the founder of CBI talking about it, he says they are calling it the Cover Series Bumper for now!

    Can't see the video here. The bullbar looking thing? It looks different from the screenshot posted. Is that a removable piece then?

    Thanks, I should rephrase: I don't have access to YouTube at work right now. I'll just watch it when I get off work.

    Yes, it's a separate product from CBI that happens to also be compatible with their covert bumper. I believe it's compatible with a stock bumper as well.

    EDIT: here it is: https://cbioffroadfab.com/product/t3-push-bar/

    Why spend money on something that looks factory? Especially with what cbi will charge. Just buy the hidden winch mount which has even less cutting. (Seeing as that sound to be Ops objective not to cut)

    If you're looking for a slim bumper I personally think the SSO one still wins. Especially where you can add the high clearance sides to it. I personally don't think the covert looks bad though. Not a fan of the Victory 4x4 one, that fit looks pretty poor.

    I have the SSO. I just hate that that bumper wraps around and floats off the body panel. I get what theyre accomplishing but it looks ugly to me haha

    That's the Victory not the covert. I agree, it's not good looking.
