    I do not believe such a thing exists. Not like in some vanity shot gallery, anyway. SOS hybrids are not common that I have seen. Also specify year, make, and, model.

    Any Photopshop dudes?

    I have a 2019 trd OR and I’m trying to see the sos hybrid bumper on some trucks. It’s easy to find c4 or lilbs pics everywhere. I live in Ga so I would love to go pick it up myself and stay as local as possible w my build, but I still haven’t gotten a close look at it.

    Perhaps I didn't word my question appropriately. I'm asking if anyone here has experience with the plates. I'm trying to figure out the language on the website. NIJ Rated is not the same as NIJ Certified. I understand that getting something certified can mean paying some group a bunch of $$$ for their seal of approval, but that independent testing is also a good watchdog for quality consumer products. $208 shipped is a WHALE of a deal for a set of plates, so I'm very interested. I had my eye on some Tactical Scorpion Gear plates at $444.

    Not up to speed on the certification, but I know Eddy is working on it.

    I am not going to put my life on the line for NIJ Rated. LEO armor must be NIJ Certified. A quick google search has dozens of steel plate suppliers that are around the same price point. Also, I am not sure what plates you were looking at -- III or IIIa or IV - all the plates I read about were "We are Compliant with all NIJ standards so dont pay more for lesser quality products ." I would ask is that rated or certified. Furthermore, it looks like Tactical Scorpion is just a rebranded AR500 plate. I ran HESCO during all my deployments......

    Just my two cents.

    We're in agreement on "rated" and "certified." Everyone says to avoid AR500, made in New Mexico. I've had a couple of folks recommend Tactical Scorpion (made in North Carolina). Looking at the fine print of the tactical scorpion plates, I see now it reads "Tested to the new DOJ/NIJ STD-0101.07 standards RF2. Fully tested by independent Lab NIJ Rated for six hits from 7.62 Nato bullets (.308 Winchester)." That said, I'll be avoiding them too. Not to threadjack but who do you recommend for a set of plates around $500?

    Check out Premier Body Armor out of Kings Mountain, NC. I do not know much about them, the guy that owns it is awesome. He donates a ton back into the community and to veterans. Wilder Tactical is also affiliated. I run Wilder Tac on my rigs. He is a brother Ranger bat boy. Also, they do have a store front in an old bank west of Gastonia, although with the FakeDemic, I do not know their hours.

    I am not endorsing Premier, I met them at International Chief of Police Association Conference a few years back. They also set up a booth when 5.11 Charlotte has events..............

    Cool cool. I'm headed to the Charlotte area in a few weeks. I'll check them out. If they're at SHOT, I can check things out there too.

    The hybrids only have the center hoop high. Or I think mid height for non radar models.

    Are you looking for your truck?
