    Thats awesome!

    What are the best lights to run in the rear bumper? I read on another post that a fullsize cube gets cut off behind the bumper. Would something small like the Baja S1 be a better fit for that bumper?

    That’s actually a nice Bolton and follows and hugs the Raptors lines very well. But can it house an S8? OP wants to also reuse his S8

    Oh damn, my bad. Sorry brother. Wonder why it looked so good LOL

    You have good reasons to go bolt on though. I’d be in the same
    Predicament as you. You almost have to decide to go one way or another as your first mod. But how many do that :doh2:

    I am leaning toward the bolt-on also...I just prefer the look of it and would rather not cut up the frame and tow hooks.

    Anyone know what the main difference is between the ADD bolt on V1 vs V2? Looks like the skid plates are different but cant really tell anything else. I still prefer the look of the V1 (and its about $500 cheaper too)

    Looks like the V2 has a bigger cut out in the middle for either more or bigger lights.

    The side view of the frame horns on the bolt ons look a little strange and you get no benefit on departure angle. I was in the same dilemma and didn’t want to cut the truck and pay for the FMIC as well, but glad I did now cause I think it looks killer.

    I like the look of the hooks sticking out on the bolt on version. Realistically I probably won't be doing any serious off-roading where I would get a benefit from the increased approach angle on the frame cut bumper.

    Your setup looks awesome though! The bumpers really make this already badass looking truck even more badass looking!

    I’ve been looking at the bolt on options as well and personally prefer the looks of the SVC. It looks like it has better airflow to the stock intercooler location, the vented opening area on the SVC appears much larger than the ADD bumper. Also, I’m just not a fan of how ADD carves their ugly logo into every one of their bumpers.
