I can see that your tires are over-inflated based on the dust on your tires. Drop to 32PSI for a much better ride, handling & braking - without killing your fuel economy.

Nice wheels BTW!
Ahhhhh... The OLD DUST ON THE TIRE CHECK FOR OVER INFLATION TRICK... Nice catch!

Working on cleaning up this new to me all pro bumper. I may just go get it sandblasted I forgot how hard powder coating it to remove. The original powder coat is toast.
Has it spent the last couple of years at the bottom of the sea? Looks like a sand blast will clean it up nicely.
I love the OEM look silver ends - that's a nice touch!
Actually - I quite like the minimalist look of that bumper - do you know what model it is?

It's all about observation. The small details that most people miss - but you know that already.

The last owner lives off a dirt road in the mountains of Colorado. I guessing because of the winters it took a beating. He said it was one of their first bumpers not sure of the models.

I have thrown around this idea when i do a Demello rear bump too , i may do it at some point but it would be a lot of work via i would want it painted right and new wheels would be in order and i would even do the sticker TRD Rock Warrior in black , thanks for the photoshop , side by side comparison vvvv




Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of the bling, but you have pulled it off very well. I would throw some plastidip on there to get a taste of what it might be. But I think your formula is working as-is.

Installed my Rokmen rear lower links and helped @81N4RY install his OPOR rear lower links.

The pic below shows from top to bottom OEM/OEM bent/OPOR/Rokmen
Did you guys use the same bolts when reinstalling the OPOR rear lower link skids or used long bolts? Whoops, not sure why I read skids so never mind. Wish you could delete posts.
