    Im sure it will fit with the TRD skid, my truck had the off-road package skid and it was totally fine. I did purchase the complete package that did include the ironman skids.
    I still haven't received the lights, they are ironman branded using osram lights.

    Looking for a winch/30 inch light bar bumper. Not interested in bulky style but rather somewhat slim. Pro if it works with the RCI skid plate and $1000 or less. There’s a lot of companies and pics to go through but thought I’d ask. This is for a ‘16

    The lights included in the ironman bumper kit came in the mail a couple days ago.
    For the front they have included a 300w 32' dual row lightbar, 4 40w 3in. Cubed lights (you get to pick spot/beam/clear/amber) and two smaller 10w Amber working LEDs.

    The back bumper gets two 40w & two 20w cubed lights.

    The front bumper, if you choose to not use the smaller 10w Amber working lights, they have a block out filler piece that can be used in its place. It came pre installed on the bumper and can be seen on my first posts.
    There is another block off piece in the kit as well, it's either for the front or back but I haven't figured that out yet, I'm assuming if you chose no lights at all.

    Also in the front as seen is an optional light bar protection piece. Aesthetically I prefer the look without the protection piece, however I like the functionality more.

    The quality seems good. The housing are thick , they feel heavy for there size. Everything appears sealed well, the electric connections are good quality as well.

    So far I only have the lightbar and Amber cubes wired in.
    The lightbar was definitely communicating with aliens last night. Probably burned a hole in the back of that deers head that ran out in front of me last night. That bar is intense.

    Too many, but not enough....
    How was the wiring? Did you use the connectors they came with? Did you use the factory fog harness?

    Good question and here is the story.

    Unfortunately the kit did not include any wiring harnesses. Ironman did advertise the kit included all necessary hardware for a complete install.
    I reached out to ironman and it was not there intention to include wiring harnesses in the kit and it was a mistake in the description. Ironman offered to reimburse me for whatever purchase I needed to make to complete the install.

    I went to my local parts store and purchased a few complete wiring harness kits(switch,relay,fuse,wiring) intended for lights. I emailed ironman my receipts and I was credited to my account immediately.

    I used the factory OEM fog wiring for the two Amber cubes. The other 4 lights are wired with the aftermarket harness. The lightbar is on its own harness rated for that wattage.

    The rear bumper lights I also used a wiring harness but I tapped the switch to the cab lighting and took power from the trailer plug.

    All relatively easy and thanks to the forum I completed the rear bumper setup without running wires all the way to the battery.

    Thanks for the details, I suspected that would be the situation. Did the lights only have exposed wires without a connection or they didn't come with wires period?

    The lights did include a sealed connection with the mating pig tail.

    I am pretty close to pulling the trigger on this bumper kit and replacing the amber work lights with some SAE rigid fog lights for the road.

    I finally got my Rough Country DIY bumper done. If anyone is interested the job wasn’t too bad even knowing I’ve never welded before. I bought a Hobart 140, practiced a lot, watched gobs of YouTube videos on the topic and talked with a pretty cool older guy for some welding tips. All told, it took me a few long days of welding and grinding. My local Line-X dealer sprayed it and I put some cheap LED fog lights in it.

    Thanks for looking.

    Just got the first Tundra High Clearance Phantom Bumper from WarFab Armor. Couldn’t be happier. Super heavy duty, yet lightweight. HUGE increase on clearance and retains the hitch under the license plate.

    Wow awesome, I was wondering when someone would make this style for us. How was the cutting and installation?

    Can anyone running an SS Built bumper chime in on front recovery point options? It looks like there is some cutting involved and in the pics I’ve seen I don’t see any front tow hooks.

    That was part of the deal. WarFab needed a Tundra in their shop for a couple of days to fab up the prototype, so WarFab did the cutting and installation.

    Both the cutting and install were very straight forward, IMHO.

    BTW, the guys at the shop could not have been nicer. Real off road Toyota enthusiasts.

    I actually contacted them late last night via email and someone actually answered me close to midnight on a Friday. I gotta say I like this shop already. They said they are working on instructions for the complete installation currently. I'm really digging this bumper. Only thing I don't like is that 300 bucks shipping. That alone will probably make me wait for a sale or something.
