    It uses 2 of the bumper mount bolts, where the bumper bracket mounts to the chassis.

    Yes. Very easy. Just some bolts. I put my truck on some ramps to make it easier although they’re not necessary. Then I used a floor jack to lift the skid into place. If you can tighten a bolt, you can install this. Instructions are clear although the rear nuts were not nylon locking nuts as indicated on instructions. Instead they were normal nuts with lock washers. I’m not necessarily a fan of the spacers they use for those with a diff drop. But I’m sure they are fine.

    Oh damn. So when you have a pretty lady in the passenger seat and you tell her, “I’m really warm over here with my heated seat.” She’s gonna jump out and climb in a RAM truck with bubba.

    Just got these "used" on Amazon...lol. They are brand new and I saved $45 each. They were only $107!! Has anyone installed the reservoir on the frame instead of piggyback? Pics? Bracket? Can it even be done?

    Thanks

    Nice deal! My buddy just got them for his Tacoma and they come with frame mounts now. Not sure about tundra though. I’d call bilstein and see or use their black billet clamps. Would be cleaner!

    Any luck finding the issue? I’m in the market for an RCI skid. Wondering if you figured it out.

    Yep I figured it out, nothing to do with the RCI skids as far as I can tell (could have been the ton of dirt/gravel I got out from the skids vibrating, see below). Grinding sound I got after tightening the skids was because I'm dumb and the rear diff skid was rubbing on the drive shaft.

    Installed oem black housing led fogs. I want to say thanks to @Roman (Toyota of cool springs) for getting this shipped out quickly. Had the standard ones with philips extreme vision 100% which were white and bright on road. But the new leds are sharper and wider more defined. Brightness isn’t bad either. The philips were more white and little brighter but definitely not as wide spread. Thanks Roman.

    Nice job! Considering doing that to mine, but would keep the amber DRL. Is that possible?

    Which iHacker kit did you end up going with? Non dimming?

    Ordered the DD 6” exhaust 11/1 and fed-ex just delivered it. It’s SS and thought it would be shiny but it doesn’t matter, it’ll be dirty soon enough! Unfortunately they lost my front bumper ends I ordered from sparks! The driver even said they were supposed to be on his truck.
