"Any reason you are not looking at Ricochet? It sounds like you already got their a arm skids. I believe they have a bumper filler to match your ARB bull bar also."

Steve Hope replied to Steve Hope's discussion Good time of year for mods.
"Thanks for that. I suspected the cut-outs would be small. I think I would take them into work and hole-saw larger openings especially for my cartridge filter, and add flush covers with flat-head screws. Already have a Boztec diff skid and Ricochet…"

Hey Steve I have the same 2012 SE TT FJ. Can you send me or post photos with your black ARB bumpers? I’m considering them both front and back for my rig. Do you recommend them?
