    They come installed with some nifty little hook/screw mounts. They detach quite easily.

    @XDS Throw it in the for sale section with a pic and price. Someone will scoop it up.

    That front bumper is one of my favorites for the 14+. Don't like that rear though.

    Stick the extra bumper on the back end. I'm sure we could figure out how; with a little redneck ingenuity. Be 2x cooler than the rest of us nFabbers :rofl:

    Hey guys anyone running the coachbuilder shims behind your nfab bumper? I'm familiar with some having some issues rubbing on the grill. Would the shims prevent that?

    Those don't look like the right install notes. The PDF is referring to part T07RBS (the one with the hitch is part number T07RBS-h).

    I am holding at step 3 of the rear bumper bracket installation because there is no corresponding hole for me to install the supplied M8x25mm Hex bolt, nut, spacer & washer.

    Has anyone else run into this... what did you do?

    I don't think I installed that bolt. Just the two main frame bolts on each side.

    You could always drill a hole

    Looks good. Did you just remove the diff-drop spacers from the front of the skid or did you need to remove the entire diff-drop? (I contacted N-Fab and they said that I would likely need to remove the RCI skid all together - this is not an option. :))

    I think I removed the entire skid when I did it. You might be able to get the spacers out without taking down the whole skid, but it might be pain working with that limited space. Dunno if you could get a torque wrench in there.

    Thanks for the reply. I don't mind removing the skid to install the bumper but when all is done I want to have the RDS bumper, my RCI skid, and my diff-drop. Your picts show that you removed the diff-drop spacers from the front mounting points of the skid. Were you able to keep the actual diff-drop?

    I see what you're saying now. The RCI skid hung too low with the diff drop in to work with the N-Fab skid. I had to lose the diff drop.

    Ahh - OK, thanks. I was hoping that you just removed the spacers from the front mount points and were able to keep the diff-drop. I may need to look for a different solution. :(

    I ran one of the LP lights under the bumper and then wedged through the opening above the plate. I used VLeds bulbs that wedged in there nicely

    I installed mine with the diff drop in. The skid actually came with spacers to put in place with it to take up the extra gap. I'm gonna trim the nfab skid but right now mine actually overlaps the nfab.. the opposite of @UTTundra

    Thanks for the info. So with the little plastic spacers left at the front mounting point of the rci skid it is enough for the front edge of the skid to wrap over the n-fab skid? Do you have a pict that shows the rci and n-fab skids together?

    This will work - Thanks! I knew that folks here would have a more definitive answer than the manufacturer. :thumbsup:

    Curious curious. I wonder if they changed their design recently.. My NFAB "skid" (what a joke) sits on top of my RCI skid. I used a bit of weather strip to prevent contact between the two.
