    I have a Sport, do i have to remove the air dam?

    I don't plan on buying a winch, with just the bumper does it sag the front end with stock suspension?

    Can i cover the winch cable opening with license plate?

    I'm hoping the price will come back down to the original.

    If you look at the official Warn pics, you can see the plastic, that the air dam attaches to, is pushed down some by the bottom of the bumper. You may be able to trim the plastic to keep air dam, but I just cut it off completely. I put my license plate over the winch cable opening and didn't notice much sag in the front end.

    I think about 5.5 inches. I don't have the pro grille.

    Only problem with the Warne one is no place for front license plate. I live in Oregon and a front license plate is required. This is one reason why I went with the C-4 Fab lo-pro bumper. Not to put down the Warne, they are a great company. The C4 has been great so far, especially because I built magnets into the license plate so i can pull it off whenever I need to use the winch (fairlead behind license plate with sun cable attached to ring under bumper). I have been commuting and driving for a year or so now with it on and NO issues, even driving at 90mph out to the Deschutes on straight roads.

    My Warn has provisions for a front plate.

    It's in all the pics that have been posted. Look closely. Zoom in on this one. Two holes above the fair lead.

    It appears I stand corrected. Thanks for the clarity.

    Definitely has plate mount on my Warn but I haven't hung my front plate on it yet. Where I currently live in Ontario, Canada requires a front plate but I'm from Quebec where they don't require it. I was thinking to mount the plate in front of my fair lead but now I'm thinking some type of quick release. What magnets did you use Speysquatch?

    I bought some magnets at Home Depot that have metal disc sleeves around them. I drilled thru them and used spacers and bolts through the license plate to space it away from the fair lead. At the bottom of the license plate I put an expanding rubber bumper for shock. Works like a charm

    Why do you want that air dam anyways? All it does is inhibit your ride offroading

    That is a brilliant answer. Picture WITH a tape measure rather than just a 5.5" response. gives waaaay more than text ever could. thanks!

    I'm really leaning towards this bumper. I've only had two concerns, one was that I need to have a front license plate, but noticed that it has provisions for it.

    My last concern is that I currently have a 30" light bar mounted behind my upper grill below the Toyota logo. From the looks of it, the hoop would block it. Can anyone confirm that?
