came across this pic from superjuleslee's Wk2:

(Still waiting on some more high-def pics of it on a "Mineral Grey" to see if it "takes away" from the paint.

I would love to have a full Bull Bar like ECB makes, but the wife doesn't want this to be a complete off road machine. lol. I have to do "tasteful" mods... I can't wait until ARB makes a complete front bumper replacement like the ECB bull bar.

That prerunner plate looks really good! It cleans up the front end nicely.

I'm guessing that mounting it requires the winch mount (which isn't a bad thing).

Yea, it is pretty beast. I messaged them about if the winch/bumper kit is required. If I had the winch kit, I would remove the plastic fascia and do the skidplate (since now protection is available).


Edit: the bumper kit is required per RRO.

That plate is exactly what I've been looking for. Just sucks that you need the winch bumper kit to get it.

Thanks Jackal! That is sick. Now, need pics of it on a non-black Overland to see if it clashes with the chrome.

This is an awesome effort by RRO, I really like the winch bumper kit best on the market for sure. The skid plate on the other hand is meh, @ least it's functional. Id like to see more pics of it in higher definition. Coming from owning a Prerunner before my wk2 in comparison this skid plate looks awful. Here are some pics of a full Prerunner bumper kit on my last truck, if a co fabs up one similar to this I would be Sold.

I couldn't tell if they just removed the air dams up front of if they had to cut the bumper. Anyone know for sure?

The whole lower fascia has been removed no cutting

This is starting to look decent, it is hard to see but I like the steel bar going across the front of the skid plate. With the fascia removed it should give a better angle; I wish they had a side pic so we can compare.
