    RDS + Radiance bar.

    Before I go into this at full speed... do you guys use the brackets that came with the radiance bar? I feel like it sits up too tall.. figured id ask b4 installing and then realizing mid install that I need a shorter mount. Thanks guys!

    I have the MRDS, and the mounts for my light bar were too high, so I measured and drilled holes so it sits right in the middle (vertically). You can buy low profile mounts, but a drill press and some good measurements will make your current mount work for you.

    I’m thinking about pulling the trigger on the M-RDS or the RSP for my truck. I have a diff drop and a TRD Pro skid. Does anyone know if it will work or will I have to bust out the angle grinder on the nFab skid?

    I think with the diff drop the skid will end up over the nfab one

    Be sure to think about re powder coating it, they PC they use isn’t the best it’s not horrible but will show some light spots here and there.
    Also if they come with black bolts, send an email and get stainless steel. Mine rusted within 3 days they sent me new hardware ASAP!

    I have the RSP bumper with a diff drop and the RCI skid and the bumper skid fits fine. There would be no issue with the TRD Pro skid.

    Thanks for the advise on the skids guys. Man I really like these(especially the pricing) and want to pick one up but am interested in putting a 12k winch up front. I thought I saw some people had these with winches but I can't seem to find a retailer that has a winch option with them. Am I missing something?

    EDIT: I guess maybe I can get the RSP version with a winch mount (https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/n-fab-front-bumper-textured-t141lrspw-tx/_/R-BKES-T141LRSPW-TX)? Does anyone know if it will fit the Smittybilt 12,000lb winch? https://www.amazon.com/Smittybilt-98510-Waterproof-Synthetic-Winch/dp/B00K150X2E

    Unfortunately I think that nfab discontinued the winch mount for the rsp bumper. I called and asked about just buying the mount and skid and was not possible. You might be able to find some old stock or maybe one used. For a winch bumper, ADD has a bumper that is kind of similar to the MRDS. (I’m considering just having a local fab shop make the winch mount and skid for my rsp).

    Update: no bueno they wanted to drop ship and as we know nFab doesn’t make it anymore. Now all the discounts are over on the non-winch versions. Ah well

    Are these compatible with the parking sensors in the front corners?

    ordered the NFAB mrds front bumper about 6 weeks ago and received it night before Thanksgiving but it was damaged so I had to send it back was pretty disappointed now it's another waiting game to see how the next one shows up

    Just picked up a new MRDS from a guy on FB for $1K. Was still in the original bubble wrap. Doesnt look like the factory skid will go back on very well. What are you guys doing for an engine skid. I'm just going without for now.

    Woulda gave you a deal if you were located close to PNW. I see some people just cut the front of the oem skid so that it fits.

    Not directly. I modified the mesh cover to fit my parking sensors.

    The aluminum skid that comes with the n-fab bumper is a pain to install. I recently had to take it off to replace a pod light. It was a pain to get off as well. I decided to use riv-nuts instead of the nuts/washers provided with the bumper since it's basically a blind install. clip nuts would work as well, but you would need to get longer button cap screws. The reason for the different methods is that the holes on the sides are larger diameter than the one up front.
