    You’re going to need new springs up from for that beast. Good thing is, if you do buy one, do a will call and pick it up from their US HQ in Auburn.

    They used to be up in Renton and it sounds like they moved down towards Emerald Downs. I’ve picked things up direct from them before and it saves on freight shipping. Just make sure you have room for one very large box.

    I hear you in the protection. I had their bar on my old 2010 4R and loved it. Some say it sticks out too far but it’s also the only aftermarket bumper that’s been tested to be compliant with air bag sensors.

    CBI is an option for the rear bumper but I think you’ll lose the tow capability (calls for removing the OE hitch and replacing with a unrated one from manufacturer)

    Is the Summit bumper strictly bolt on or is cutting and/or fabricating involved?

    Bolt on but the existing bumper must be cut.
