    Thanks everyone, the pressure is really on now. But I've got all the parts, except for a few things that are waiting to be shipped. Just need to begin installing with the exception of a couple parts that need to have brackets and mounts fabricated.

    I did research on this and from all accounts, it does appear that you do need to cut the front bumper. The bit of the top portion that's left will have to serve as a filler. I ended up buying a replacement bumper cover on RockAuto.com to hack up (Only $38!). They come in that matte black finish so it will actually blend quite nicely with the ARB bumper. Here's the downside, shipping was $108 since it's an dimensionally oversized item. :facepalm:

    My Superwinch Tiger Shark 11500 will be showing up later next week so I'll throw everything on then. I'll take some detailed photos as it goes along.

    I've seen other 12+ installs where the bumper filler was not used. I keep wondering how they do it.

    Interesting... You're talking specifically about 2012-2013 Tacomas? Or just the 2nd Gens in general? I suppose setting the main brackets back will push the bumper further inward, eliminating the gap, but it appears the tires could then hit the upper edges of the bumper. I'll play with it and see what I find.

    Relocating the mounting holes. Not a how to, but it can't be that bad:

    Here is another one with some pics of a guy raising the ARB to fit his body lift. I'd imagine it would be a very similar process to make it fit without using part of the stock bumper as a filler.

    Nice! Glad to see it worked out for you. I'm going to replace mine with properly sized tamper proof torx. I'll figure out the length, let me know if you want to know the size as well.

    Ya let me know. Would rather have hardware that works than what is used for the rack itself

    I'm pretty sure you need to be invited to get inside of SEMA, not sure about the outside stuff though.

    SEMA is going to be on November 5th through the 8th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This is a trade show for the automotive aftermarket and performance industry. Normally you have to be within the industry to be able to obtain a pass. However, in the past I have seen them open the show up to the general public on the last day, and I am pretty sure outside exhibits are open to the public as well.

    You should come by if you can.

    Yea that's what I was thinking. I went last year with my father-in-law and his company. SEMA is a fun time if you are able to go. Met Clay and Scott from Expedition Overland along with seeing numerous badass cars.

    Sweet! Yeah, SEMA always has awesome cars. You should try to make it out again, it's always a good excuse to go to Vegas!
