    Picked up my new bumper this past Friday and installed it today. For the most part it went well. Did have a hell of a time setting the light brackets and wiring the lights. After we figured out what we where doing it all fell into place. The fog light kit is ordered and should be in a few days. I will post some pics of that as well. Her are some pics of how it sits now...

    I didn't get my tocomaworld sticker centered and need another one to
    replace this one. Should be the center of attention! HINT! HINT!

    Looks great, I like the newer styling that integrates the OEM fogs. I had one on my TJ and used a few times and saved me from trail damage. I emailed them a while back on weight. Was advised the Taco version was 121lbs shipping weight. So probably around 100lbs after you subtract the huge box and packing materials. I have an XD9000i from my prior jeep and that sucker with steel rope weighs 90 by itself.

    Not sure if the 121 is the newer style or the old style. But they look alot heavier than they are. Looks great, can't wait for pics with the fog light kit.

    With the foglight inserts it looks exactly like the FJ bullbar and the lack of the rubber guards on it. I'd really like the rubber guards on the FJ bullbar.

    Yes, a 3" Old Man Emu lift. It should work with oem set up? May need stiffer springs?
