    It's painted. Was told powder coat would probably get more chips in it from rocks and road debris than paint and clear coat. I plan on adding some paint protection film to some of the main areas for added protection.

    I have a Platinum and wanted it to be color matched like everything else on the truck.

    Lots of shenanigans.
    Just finished installing the bumper, didn't have time to take pics but headed to a cars and coffee tomorrow morning so I will post some. Love the way it looks! Some advice for future people installing theirs:

    -Install all of your lights, winch, etc before putting the bumper on. It will be near too impossible to install it after.
    -If you were like me and waited to put the grill on last (video doesn't do this) it will make wiring WAY easier but it will be EXTREMELY difficult to put the grill back on. I had to reloosen all of the bolts and move the bumper forward to slip the grill back on. I also did a number on the grill since it was rubbing on the bull bar. This is because I was trying to squeeze it back into place before I loosened the bolts. Hopefully, some Mcquires scratch kit will take care of most of it, if not it's pretty well hidden behind the bull bar so I'm not too worried about it.
    -The access point for the wired winch is difficult to reach so I'm probably gonna to take @Zero One Actual advice and velcro it near the battery for ease of access.
    -If possible have a buddy or two ready to help you lift it. If you don't have a friend use an engine hoist.

    Ok, thanks. Wanted to make sure. For that kinda coin it better! With my new bumpers it’s gonna be a minute but the Baja Designs stuff looks top notch.

    Yeah its pretty good, I will say that the SAE Fogs aren't the best in the world but they'll do the job. I was super lazy and didn't want to build a bracket for it so went the BD route. DD would prob produce more light but that's just based off of looking at other members pictures.

    I may have cheaped out and bought some Amazin Amber cubes to start with
    :anonymous:
    Next big project will be lighting upgrades front and rear. Probably some rounds or a bar up front and then some rear cubes for camp.

    Question for those with pros that have the fox suspension and have mounted this bumper along with lights and winch, how much sag did you experience in the front after mounting? If it was significant, what did you do to help bring the front back up?

    No fox, but pro with bilstein suspension and didn’t experience any sag at all. I have a lot more clearance now with the bumper. I know we don’t have the same suspension but hope it helps a bit.

    Thanks fellas. Glad to hear I will not need to do anything to my suspension other than replacing the leaf pack in the back for all of the extra weight I’ve added.

    Also, I just got tracking info on my bumpers today. Finally get to unpack some of these boxes that have been stacking up in my garage. :bananadance::yes:

    Random post of the day. I am attempting to wire the amber backlight on the LP9 pro and Baja Designs is closed for assistance on a Saturday and I am not sure where to find instructions on what to tie it into so it is on. I read maybe one of the fog light harnesses or something. Anyways, if anyonme went through this process and knows what to do, that would be cool.

    I just found a fuse in the fuse box under the hood that was powered by ignition and used a fuse tap in there.

    Does it matter if I have the LP9 Pro and this is for the amber back light feature only? Maybe I need to tie it into the DRL or headlight harness?

    No sir, that third wire for the backlight just needs an ignition source if you want backlight on all the time. I tried tapping my DRL but it made them quit working, I think it put too much of a draw on the DRL circuit. So now my backlight comes on whenever the key is on.

    The reason they quit working for lack of a better professional response is because that circuit is a pulse and not steady due to the LED lights. I just hooked them up to the steady circuit and they work fine now.

    Thank you both for the real time assistance. Tundras.com saves the Saturday yet again.

    Pics please! This will help my install in a few weeks. TIA

    I may also put all of my backlights into a switch in my spod too. Not sure I want them on all of the time...
