    For those of you that own this bumper, can you comment on how the tow hooks are attached. This is the only image I can see where they pass through the front. Are they just welded on the front or do they actually pass through and are welded to the mounting plates?

    And is anyone running the Warn 10,000 lbs VR EVO 10-S Winch or Warn 12,000 lbs VR EVO 12-S Winch with it?

    there’s two locations on the front of the bumper. Just attach your standard d rings to it and there you have it.

    I understand that but you missed my question. I am asking, are they just welded on the front or do they pass through the front and are welded to the mounting plates?

    If they pass through the front plate and are welded on the backside, then this would create a much stronger tow hook/recovery point

    I've got it on my 2018 with a Warn VR10s. I don't think the recovery points pass through but they are strong and have been tested in the three years I've used them.

    The tow hooks are welded onto the 1/4” plate that bolts to your frame .. that part you circled in red is the back side of the tow hook.

    Tss sensor on the 20-21 sport and OR grill is not effected by the hooped version of this bumper even through warn says not to use it with tss. Tss on regular trds is inside of the oval logo while pro is under the toyota letters. Pro tss get blocked by the hoop. I have had the hoop on my ‘20 sport for a couple of weeks now with no issue.

    Does anyone have the vr evo 12-s winch with this bumper? Does it fit in there? Do you have to relocate the electrical box on top of the winch? Thanks

    Yeah, they are nice and strong .. i see no issue with putting a 3” strap onto the d rings at that location and going to town getting pulled out of the mud.
