    Looking for a bumper for my TRD Pro that has spot for light bar but does not require cutting or drilling. Pictures or links would be great!

    Welcome and good luck,

    I started looking for something like that in April, and didn't find it...

    I wanted more protection, but also wanted the option of going back to stock if I hated it

    also, if you intend to mount lights/lightbar...you have to be aware of the TSS sensor and either move it, or modify your expectations for enhanced lighting
    TSS Sensor also comes into play when bumper shopping

    The no cutting requirement I think eliminates all your options. At least the popular ones I am aware of.

    I didn't want to cut the bumpers for awhile. Finally got over it accepting it was required unless staying stock. Some good examples in this thread. I have the c4 lo profile and am happy with it.

    If you’re ok with cutting the bumper cover, Warn makes an otherwise bolt-on winch mount bumper. I’ve had one for about 3 years now, good powder coat job, with no rust bubble anywhere. Mine came without the hoop so it doesn’t interfere with the TSS sensor.

    Why people fret over a $200 plastic bumper cover when dropping $1k-2k on an off road bumper is always puzzling to me. The bumper cover was likely already cut at port or at the dealer for tire clearance, due to the more outset Pro wheels.

    IMG_0528.jpg I ran a Tyger bullbar for a couple years before I installed my Warn LoPro. The Tyger bullbar was about $179. Bolt on. Something to consider.
