    What options are there for replacement front bumpers that still utilize the parking sensors?

    I'm in the process of drilling out holes for sensors in the Road Armour Stealth bumper - will let you know if I'm successful! Should be happening in the next week or so.

    I purchased a fab fours premium and had the shop drill holes for the sensors. They work great, except they dont cover directly in front the vehicle, more to the sides.

    Pelfreybilt offroad is working on 3rd gen bumpers. The rear appears to have sensor holes. Not sure of the ETA for production Screenshot_20171031-192819.jpg

    You could just drill holes through. Easy solution.

    Check out your local Craigslist for guys that'll fab you one. There's a guy here that quoted me sliders for $400, but he also does bumpers and I'll probably have him do a front to start. Those sensors could easily be incorporated into any design.

    Depends on what kind of bumper you are looking for. Do you want a low profile steel bumper? A heavy duty bumper with grill guard? A bumper that hides a winch?

    Iron Cross sells a low profile steel bumper and a heavy duty one for the Tundra. Here is a low profile one, it caught my eye because it would replace my chrome while giving me a heavier bumper and it be ordered with the parking sensor holes. http://www.ironcrossautomotive.com/LowProfileBumper.html

    I must say I like the looks of that Magnum RT bumper ^.

    Sorry I'm not going to be excited about a new ARB Bumper until I see the profile shot.
    They're existing one sticks out....a lot.

    Not mine. No idea. And at $2K+ it is unacceptable to me.

    There is a reason for why there aren't profile shots on their website. I would be beyond pissed.

    I asked the question on IG but haven't seen an answer. Will this require cutting? Cutting seems to be ARB's new favorite thing to do.

    From just that picture doesn’t look like any cutting. Just removal of the lower piece under he headlamps. Maybe around lower grille area and mudflats?

    Man I hope not. That would be like wearing a football helmet everywhere. No worries about smokin' critters with that thing, though. Love the wheels!

    Got a response from ARB. "Yes, like most newer vehicles, lots of plastic up front."

    I just don't get it.

    Geez, why doesn't ARB just sell Cow Catchers from a steam locomotive? That is ridiculous, IMHO.

    I can speak from experience that the go rhino bumpers have support for sensors with pre built holes and mounting brackets for existing stock sensors.

    If that was a farm truck, it wouldn’t bother me. Guys around here have giant Ranch Hand type bumpers on those all the time. But that thing’s seems too beefy for an off-road type build. If it were 6” closer to the grille it’d look better.
