    Had a Discovery with a trailer hitch, guy rear-ended me going about 30 mph. I had a couple of scratches on the bumper, the Honda didn't fare as well. Ever since then, I've put a hitch on every vehicle that came with a receiver.

    Hey play nice @bronzestar1 ! :p
    Gotta admit the joke is funny tho

    @Bobafett
    I am sure that when the wings fastened, they sit where they sit. And the bumper cover sits where it sits.
    I mean when you get time, can loosen them and add cheap automotive edge trim to your cuts.

    I was concerned about that before I installed it. Tonight was my first drive after the install. Turned the heat on and didn’t notice a thing. FWIW, the screen height is adjustable if it really bothers the owner not to have direct air on them.

    Oooh look, another mod.....

    Looking at this guys front bumper, is like looking at Steve Buscemi's teeth. So many angles, sizes and odd shapes.

    Hey when you post to the world, sometimes what's funny is funny.

    One of the very first threads I started, the very first comment I got. Was someone experienced and long standing on here, blatantly making fun of me and my handywork. Gotta have thick enough skin

    Well didn't plan to, but got my Blackvue dashcam installed.

    It came with a lighter socket plug and I didn't want to look at the plug sticking out of the center console (ocd a little) so I used the center console storage plug and drilled a 1/2" hole through the front of it to pull the cord through underneath the shifter area, under the glove box, up the weather stripping and pillar, under the headliner and plugged in.

    Only after all that and adhering it to the windshield did I realize it was blocking the light sensor on the rear view mirror :annoyed:

    I was excited to share with like minded people. That’s a test fit with preliminary cuts before I do the Final Cut and add the auto trim and fasten everything down. The Steven Buscemi teeth tuck behind the bumper. That shits funny tho. I still have to trim more but ran outta daylight.

    Forgive me, no one's claiming to be perfect. The internet is the internet. I tried not to take a jab at as low of a level. I stated right off the bat all it needs is auto edge trim. And you know to add that, so I hope no hard feelings sorry.

    I have personally complemented this 4R build, at least once already previously
    $50,000 truck.
    Center bumper worth many hundreds of dollars, at least in CAD.
    It's the high level of quality that truck has, that makes the cut so hard to look at.

    I mean, the wings are one thing, they're notoriously difficult to incorporate and sometimes lack instructions. But I was poking at the bumper cover around the Body Armor bumper. No one "test fits" any bumper that heavy to take back off again imo

    I was butt hurt at first but then edited my post. I agree with you. I’m not test fitting the bumper, I’m test fitting the front facia or bumper cover. Still not happy with it and will return to it on the upcoming days off.
    No hard feelings here.

    Ouch. This is a tough one. You can always get a new bumper and start over. I really think it was a cut issue and not a product issue. I’m so sorry it turned out like that bobafett. It’s not an easy install for sure.

    Oooh look, another mod.....

    I will admit, I really wanted to bust your balls when I noticed you were in Philly.

    I figured (hoped, really), that it was a rough cut and you weren't done. Clean that shit up and show us the final product!

    I mean, it looks like he under cut to test fit. At least he has good margins to trim and make a much better fit.

    Me on the other hand, I measured a half dozen times and then went to town with the dremal. I'm stuck with the gaps I ended up with

    Yeah I’m lucky. There’s still too much material of the bumper cover above the wings. This is preventing the center to go behind the central bumper like it did before I had the wings and also causing upward pressure that’s making the bumper cover closer to the tires to push out. Honestly I got pissed taking the bumper cover off and on after trimming a little off each time. I knew I had to step away for awhile.

    Yeah, taking it off and on is a real PITA. When I installed my low pro bumper it was a single day with a friend. Doing it myself would be at least two days, and if I took the cover on and off for a good fit like you it would probably be more. I'm an impatient bastard so I taped it up per instructions and then started cutting with a maniacal laughter like dexter.

    Even with a friend I should have probably taken at least two days but live and learn

    Took the dogs for a walk tonight and got to view how much brighter the Meso hatch lights are v.s. the OEM lights. Took a quick pic. No flash etc... just hatch lights. Much brighter. Really light up the area. Maybe a brighter bulb would have done the same but kept the OE look (?), but I'm happy I installed them.

    The screen is also adjustable up and down. So if you need more air flow, you can simply drop it down a bit.

    It's a PITA for sure to get the angles right, especially since it changes every time you mount the wings as they push the plastic around. Don't be like me and make it "perfect" since you need a little gap to prevent rubbing.

    Now that my PCS faults are gone, plugged the Banks pedal monster back in after a month of driving without it.

    No longer feels like I'm towing a bus.

    I can only assume it's because they think I'm gaining a little too much weight. :notsure:

    If it was me mounting all those zombie lights around the basket, I'd maybe mount one more, that can illuminate the roof basket, so you can see where everything is. Mount it on some kind collapsible pole, so you can extend it up to shine down on the roof, then collapse it down so it's not sticking up like an antenna.
