I used some edge trim you can't tell unless you get close and really look.
If you have an SR5 - think about how that grill extends behind the bumper cover before you cut... I'm thinking about 1.5" down from the grill is about right.

Looks great!

What would you say is the added weight with the bumper and winch?

That hybrid bumper looks slick. I'm patiently waiting for my 4th gen one to be released hehe.

LFD Hybrid Bumper

Engo SR10 - Synthetic 10000lb Winch weighs 60 pounds.
LFD Hybrid Bumper weighs 83.2 lbs.
Stock Bumper I removed weighed 24.4 pounds.
Center of mass of new gear is a bit forward of stock bumper so 60 + 83.2 - 24.4 = 118.8 isn't exactly right, but close.

I still have stock suspension and I think the front went down about 1/2 inch... hard to tell with various measurements.
Front skid plate seems to show it most.

That sounds about right. We added a bit more weight with lights, but our Dobinsonís springs only dropped 1/2 inch...

Has anyone mounted an antenna to the crossbars? Thinking about mounting my midland gmrs antenna up there and curious to what solutions you folks may have. Thanks!

3/8" through hole NMO mount should fit almost perfectly in the large hole cutout part of the slot

I have my magnetic shorty antenna for the WeBoost mounted to a cross bar (and then I pop it "down" to live horizontally off of the inside of the side rail when I'm not expecting to need it)...

Are you talking about the short magnetic mount antenna included with the MXT275 (and I'd imagine the 115)? Or adding a NMO style mount should be fairly easy. I've never measured to see if the 3/8" NMO will fit through the circular part, but it could alternatively just enlarge one of them. If that's not your cup of tea any of the generic 90 degree or "fender" NMO mounts should work just fine.

If you wanted to get fancy with it you could look into something like a Diamond trunk lip mount (or SUPER fancy with their motorized one).

Thanks for the responses folks! Was planning on adding an NMO mount to use with the MXTA26 antenna.

I've run a CB antenna bolted directly to a crossbar in a pinch (left the mount at home accidentally). It was tall, which is good for reception but bad for branches!

This is how my Dual Band antenna is mounted... It becomes a pogo stick with the branches.

It is in the top of the pic by the ROAM Crate...

Update - Wind Fairing Solved the Noise

Seems obvious but I figured I'd update the post. Yes, the wind fairing works. Installed the steel fairing Saturday (about 2 mins) and noise went away, loaded or unloaded.

Had 2 stainless crossbars positioned between the low noise OEM marks on the rails.
Was able to mount hi-lift, shovel and 4 recovery boards (2 Xbull stacks side by side).
Noise was noticeable, but easy to ignore.
Above 70 got a little worse, but not bad.
No need for a wind fairing.

Moved the 2 bars all the way back and noise wasn't much different.

Added 3rd bar all the way forward and now the noise is annoying.
Don't really need the 3rd bar for 4x4 gear, but I wanted it to spread the bars out for Lowe's runs.
I could have just moved the two around as needed and saved money, but I already bought the third, so now I think i need a wind fairing.
Plus, moving them around isn't hard, but it is time consuming - they aren't quick-release and slide.
And they have to be just right so all the bolts and brackets line up for the gear on top.

Snaps that looks good! Do you find the bumper trim helpful? Approach wise? Thinking about cutting mine a little

Damn that looks good. Best hybrid out there because of the winch access. Will be getting one maybe later this year. How long did it take to install, without the winch and with the winch?
