Finally getting around to installing my Evil Offroad Banshee rear bumper. I'm curious to see what you guys did about dovetailing your beds as well as if you have any pictures of the area you trimmed where the stock hitch/bumper mounted to since the Banshee bumper seems to only mount to the upper two bolt holes. Thanks!

Hey Cody... I'm in literally in the middle of getting it done now. Doug just sent these pics over. It looks good but I don't know if I want the angle to be sharper. Guess we'll see when they attach the banshee bumper. And where can I find your pics?

Just run a search on my name and you'll find a bunch of different threads I've posted pictures in recently. Mine has a little bit steeper angle I think.

*** Update ***
Just uploaded some new pics of the final look. To recap, has my Gen Juan dovetailed along with the Evil Banshee (with sensors painted) rear bumper paint matched (sterling grey) with the fenders. Very happy with the outcome... gives a 'lighter' and more balanced look in the back (to me).

Done! (even took the same angle you did Cody ha) I'm loving the dovetail mod... gives a more balanced look. Catch myself saying 'shhhhiiiieetttt' every time I walk up/away to Juan (y'all know what I'm talking about). Also installed Icon RXTs, King 3.0s, Evil Banshee rear bumper (with fender color match).

I like it when other terrain guys do mods. I can see what mine would look like :)

She looks beautiful! I'm still really glad I went with that bumper as well. :)
