    I know a few of us have n-Fab bumpers and I'm starting to get more and more questions on these so figured we could have a bumper pic dump / BS thread.

    Throw up pics of your bumper(s) with the specs:
    - Finish
    - Corner covers
    - Painted skid
    - Light combos

    @Almaboy @831Tun @UTTundra @Sean266 (when you get yours lol). Tag anyone else I forgot

    M-RDS front bumper - Gloss finish, no covers, rattle can bed liner on the skid.
    - Light Bar - 42" curved double row from Amazon (Link)
    - Pods - Rigid Radiance Pods (Link). Mostly went with these as I can use them as fogs and don't seem too bright and blind everyone. I also like the backlighting that I have hooked up to the fog wiring.

    My main decision for going with the rear bumper was it matched the front and retained the hitch. Not many rear options out there that retain the hitch (at least when I bought this). This is also the 2007 - 2013 bumper which has a little more clearance than the 2014+ model. There was some fab req in order to get the bumper to fit.

    n-Fab RBS Rear Bumper - Gloss finish, no covers, rattle can bed liner on the skid.
    - Nilight Pods from Amazon (Link)

    MRD-S front bumper - Textured, no covers, haven't painted skid

    Light bar: 42" Auxbeam Quadbeam. Cheap, but gets the job done, and they already sent me an entire new light because the lens cracked on the first.
    https://www.auxbeam.com/led-light-bars/Quad-beam-Series/70025973

    Pods: Rigid D-Series Pro Diffused (I use these as fogs), Rigid Dually D2 Specter Driving Lights

    Pod mounts: https://www.amazon.com/LAMPHUS-Off-Road-Horizontal-Mounting-User-friendly/dp/B01FETT3FO

    I'm still using the POS stock skid plate. I had to trim off the front mounting points to fit. Will replace with an RCI soon.

    It's a tight fit getting two pods in the corners. I used a little velcro under the outer pod so that it wouldn't rub the bumper.

    Some people have complained about the clearance between this bumper and the grill. I do have some rubbing, but not enough to bother me.

    How's the bed liner holding up on your skid? Did you do any prep work on it beforehand?

    I really like the dual cubes, I'd love to get some amber up front for fog, dust, etc.

    Not bad for a $5 buck rattle can. I've touched it up a couple times but only because it was already off. One of these days I'll just line-x them

    That rattle can stuff is the perfect solution for sliders too, IMO.

    That looks really good with the ambers high and low like that. You might be causing me to buy some covers so I can try to be cool too.

    I think I’m going with RI 20” with 3” RI radicance pods per side. I’m searching for part numbers now to order.

    20180306_185401.jpg 20170504_172534.jpg N-Fab RSP w/winch cut out. Huge headache! Bumper holes didn't line up with bumper brackets and winch control box didn't fit behind the skid plate while attached to the winch, I had brackets made to attach from the control box to the bumper. Bumper will rub the panels below the headlight if I go bombing through deep puddles but are easy to touch up.

    RSP front bumper with Baja Designs Squadron sports and KC 20" combo bar. Bumper is adjusted all the way down on the right side and still contacts the panels under the headlight if I hit a bump just right. I will be removing it soon and grinding the slots a little bigger on that side for more adjustment.

    Clearly, I'm doing it all wrong. Where'd you buy your bumper from? It'd be helpful to avoid that $150 shipping charge if possible

    I ordered my front through 4wp since they had a 10% promo and free shipping to the store. SDHQ can also order it for you and might get the tundras discount. Could probably have it there before the run next Sunday. I'll help you put it on in the parking lot lol
