"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."

"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…"

"If you are going with steel skids then Budbuilt is probably the way to go. RCI skids in aluminum is what I have and I love them. There is a picture of them installed on Nestor's Instagram page 8 boxes down (left to right). You probably…"

"Hey there, new member here moving over from the blue room.  I ran a BFG A/T KO2 285/70/17 which I believe is just shy of a 33" tire. I ran it just fine - no BMC - with first a 2" spacer lift, and then I upgraded to a coilover lift…"

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?
