Its almost been 3 yrs in my 2016 TRD sport DCSB4x4! I haven't even come close to slowing down on the mods to this truck! My wife would kill me if she had any idea how much i have spent! But Hell you only live once right?

How do the Baja lights with that surrounding plastic from the stock bumper fit in the steel one? I’ve wanted to grab a pair for my cbi bumper

Better then i thought. I need to figure away to raise the light up about 1/2" to aim the lights down a little bit . As they sit right now there only going to be safe offroad or i will be blinding other drivers on the streets.

How was the cutting for this bumper? Mine shows up any day now and nervous about doing it on my own.
I'm not OP but it's very easy to do a good job if you take your time, measure and align twice, and cut through masking tape.

Get the lines taped off for cutting, double and triple check them have a good cutting tool and take your time its not a race! Should come out great!
What was your cutting tool of choice?

My little body trimmer tool was good but the blades that fit it were crap.

I used a dremel tool with a really good cutting blade.

Nice, I recently got one from Harbor Freight to fix one of my bed side cuts. It works better than the body trimmer but the cutting wheel wore away quickly -- luckily I had a few on hand.

I just received my Demello bumper and researching instal tips. For the AC/oil cooler coil under the radiator it says to bend it. I also saw some bumpers have brackets to move it back. How was the fit with a winch etc.? I also have a BD S8, winch is an x20. Thanks for the help.
