    They look fantastic! For where I go, and what I do off road, aluminum is preferred. Those weight savings really add up on an already relatively heavy vehicle. Thanks, Victory 4x4.

    These look awesome! Look like the bar will/could interfere with the TSS. Can you verify?

    We have not yet verified if tube work on the front bumpers will interfere for sure but I would recommend no tube work for TSS.

    Any thoughts on making a taller tube for TSS compatibility?

    I received my Victory Strike rear bumper c/w tire carrier & license/camera relocation kit about a week ago, ordered it in bare steel. Had in Gravel-Guarded in a paint shop on Friday, I should be able to pick it up Monday.
    People, this shit is built to last. As I mentioned somewhere else, the packaging alone was incredible. Like, who notices how the merchandise is packaged? I usually don't, but did this time. The steel is thick, at least 10 gauge or 1/8". I have a buddy who's a professional welder and he was impressed by both the design and quality of the welds. Can't wait to get this puppy on my truck. Pics ASAP

    I love mine as well. Although no carriers yet, I haven’t decided, haha, maybe that’s stage 2. Not sure if I want the 2 -3 step process of accessing the rear cargo area the 90% of the time I’m using the vehicle for civilian duties. Great quality and design, for sure. Way to go, Victory.

    It will not. The sunroof and cover slide under the bracket where the panel mounts, so the mounting screws will contact and damage the cover.

    Shout out to Victory 4X4!
    Installed a set of their crossbars today and they fit perfect. Zero drama and I now have a solid mounting surface for the Weboost antenna on a Rhino folding mount. Good product, great value.
    Now to figure out how to mount traction boards to the crossbars.

    I have the TRD pro skid plate for the front will that work with the mid/transfer/gas tank skid plates?

    and if so does it leave a gap between the TRD and mid skid plate?

    thanks

    I'm sure you could make it work but it may interfere with the mid skid. You may need to trim either the rear mounting area of the TRD skid some or the front mounting area of the mid skid to get them to interlock. If you don't do any trimming, the TRD skid may just overlap the mid skid some. The transfer case and gas tank skids should work just fine.

    Looks like your bumper isn’t compatible with the 2020 TSS though. Will you be making one with a higher bull bar so the sensor isn’t blocked?

    Correct, I would recommend the no tube version of the Blitz or either version of the full Strike bumper will be compatible with TSS. We may make a higher tube option on the Blitz in the future.

    We do not sell the mounts separately. We do sell a black hardware kit for our roof racks but it is meant to replace the stainless bolts that come with the roof rack and does not include the nuts.

    Local metal fab shop? They probably have the scrap angle just laying around; it would be "recycling" too.

    Where did you find the Rhino bracket (or any lowering bracket) for your weBoost? I mean other than the ridiculous price on Rhino-racks website $$$. I had my weBoost hard-mounted on my roof rails last build; worked ok but always would bend just a bit when I hit low brush and had no way of lowering it down.

    Yes, the Rhino Rack Bracket is $100 bucks, no way around it and it took almost a month to get. It will also be the last one you ever have to buy. Very beefy and no tool raise and lowering is worth it.
    Some dudes piece together RAM Mount stuff with the Weboost antenna which is cost effective. Check out Last Line of Defense on YouTube (comms video). He has links to everything he bought via Amazon.

    I had a chicken shit Comet clamp type mount ($55) that did raise and lower before the Rhino Bracket. Didn't hold very tight and wasn't tool free raising and lowering.

    Yeah, I saw LLoD's post, but it looks like it's pieced together and I don't want that look. I got some time before I'm ready to buy since I'm still in the searching for racks zone; appreciate the feed back. Did you get it straight from Rhino-racks website?

    @victoryrunner, can you recommend a mounting solution for maxtraxx on your crossbars?

    If you already have the crossbars, you could use the mounting pins and drill holes for them in the crossbars to mount them as low as possible.
    These mounts will mount them slightly higher but they will bolt right on without drilling.
    https://www.victory4x4.com/product/VBR-TRACBO.html

    We should be adding more hole patterns to the crossbars in the near future to eliminate the need to drill or use separate mounts.

    It is the Drive-4G X OTR.

    Yes, it works, but you need to be realistic.
    A lot of places I camp have very weak or zero reception. In a lot of those places with the Weboost turned on I get 3/4 bars LTE. Huge difference.
    Now up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains the Weboost doesn't do a thing because the cell towers are so far away, the signal is 100% non existent.
    In a nutshell you need at the very least a sliver of reception for this thing to work.

    I have to agree. It's been the best addition to stay in touch and it works in the most limited areas of reception but like Jack said, you have to have signal to boost signal. The only limiting feature I've noticed is the range you actually get from the small included receiver antenna inside the vehicle; you have to be no more than 3-4 feet from this antenna for it to boost your cell. I did reach out to weBoost and they do offer an additional antenna for I think the rep said about $65 but couldn't really guarantee a range that would cover the immediate area of base camp. If you're hoping to be sitting around the campfire with your cell phone and still have reception, forget about it.

    Just received my rack the other week and she’s on my Runner! Love it. Looking like I need this addition ASAP!
    Also, I am looking for some spare bolts that would fit in the c channel so I can add some brackets to secure my bins and have some spares but I’m having a hard time finding the size. What size bolts would fit for these bad boys? Anyone know?
