Just a little teaser...... trimmed to match the fender lines before going off to powder coating (and yes, I'll be trimming the body as well for a clean/parallel line). ???

Sick! It looks like you went with the high bullbar option too. I love the look of that bumper so much! I'd mount a couple of LP9s in there

I’ve got a couple of squadrons and S2’s going in ?

Yeah, went with the full bullbar! Can’t wait for it to get back and installed. Stay tuned..... 11/11
 
id give yourself a little room between it and your fender. If you have any bad bushings, jump it, or bounce the front super hard, the body will move separate from the bumper and be a quick way to crinkle the shit out of your fenders. otherwise the trim looks great.

appreciate the info. Once it’s back from powder coat and I trim the fenders, I’ll keep that in mind. Thanks!

Ive had that experience first hand...I jump the taco on the dunes quite often, only have about 1/2" between the hybrid bumper and the body and now "both" my headlights have condensation in them from the bumper hitting the body and breaking the seals of the headlights :/

Can't wait. I'm always checking out your pictures on IG and day dreaming lol. Mine should be back from powder coating this weekend, hoping to have it on my Monday.

How much trimming do you recommend?

Haha thanks! Im looking to get a snorkel next so its really cool to see the bumper with the 35"s and trimmed fenders like your doing!!

I have 1/2" now and its too narrow...I would do 3/4" at least if you plan on wheeling hard
