    Yeah having the body shop order would likely be the easiest for you

    Thanks
    No current plans for a rear, but theres always a possibility if we get enough requests. A tube rear would not have a tire carrier available however.

    cool.. i'll let you know as sooon as i possibly can! Hurry up body shop lol. so do you have to use the baja designs lights to fit these or do any other options work like caliraised, etc. ? those damn lights are expensive.. just looking at them now lol. also, is there a chance at getting the bumper powder coated before leaving or would it have to come bare metal ? thanks

    We've seen a few other customers install light bars aside from BD but can't gurantee what will fit. Theres 2 tabs solid welded in to mount the light bar at 21 9/16" spacing. You'd need a bar that will work with that spec. Powder coat is available, adds roughly 2 weeks before shipping.

    Well the tube rear has been a consideration for us, with the hybrid front available we've been getting more and more requests to offer a predominantly tube constructed rear. A couple years ago we got a CNC tube plasma that has opened up a lot of possibilities for us when it comes to production tube parts, so theres definitely a chance. :)

    Tried the Diode Dynamic light bar and it doesn’t fit due to the depth of the mounting screws on the body of the led. The light has to have a shorter length from the face of the bar to the actual mounting if that makes sense.

    Still have those two in stock? How often do you run into powder coat damage on shipping? I like that it seems that your 2nd gen pictures have bilstein 5100 and i would presume OME Springs/ maybe stock springs? That's my set up right now and not looking to change anytime soon.

    No, we're sold out completely on the Hybrids right now, the in stock ones went real quick. Hoping to build more soon, but we've got several plate bumper batches in production right now so it'll be after all that is done.
    Powder coat damage is pretty rare for us, probably 1-2% get a scratch or scrape from the freight company destroying a crate but we do our best to protect the bumpers and build our own crates for each order. It would be rare for damage to be more than is able to be touched up by the customer on arrival.
    Our silver 2008 has 5100s on it with stock springs. Also has skids, sliders, etc and while its not lifted much it works/rides fine. If I put a Winch inside it'll likely get some coilovers on it to replace the 5100s and dial in the amount of lift/rake I desire. With the 885's on your rig you should be just fine

    Do you have any hybrid front bumpers for GX470? And any discount code?

    Very interested in the hybrid bumper for my 3rd gen. I was reading on your site, what’s the issue with the trd skid? Mentions compatible but not recommended. Care to elaborate. And same 2nd question as chengitis had.

    The bumper sits a lot tighter than the factory bumper so there is a gap between the bumper/TRD Pro skid leading to a loss of approach clearance from the skid. It does fit with it though, just technically keeps you from being able to take full advantage of what the bumper gives you. TW5OFF should save ya a few $$ at checkout
    Our next batch of 3rd gen Hybrids will be in-build in about 2-3 weeks so lead time is a lot shorter than site quotes for them at the moment unless we sell a bunch and our whole batch pre-sells. Right now there should be like 5-10 extras available though.

    Very good to know. Just wondering; do you have any old pictures of how the trd skid matches up for reference with your bumper from your R&D files?

    not off the top of my head I don't. Customers have installed the combination together and posted pics on instagram etc but I haven't personally installed the combo in our shop to take pics
