This looks fantastic. How hard was it to get the bumper off and back on. I am seriously considering doing this exact same thing but have no experience working on cars other than replacing head and tail lights

i think that it was by far the most difficult part of the whole process. and the main reason why is there are tons of hidden screws you have to find and undo behind your wheel well and under the the fender. this is the first real thing i’ve done to a car and i would start i did it pretty well but it wasn’t super easy. if you just make sure you keep track of your bolts and where they go and have a short and stubby wrench to reach behind the fenders and find all of the hidden screws it’s more than doable. to wrap it up, it’s not easy but u fully belive you can do it with enough time, patience and tools.

That looks really good! I do have a couple of questions:

1. Would you be able to take a picture of the switch and how it looks?
2. It looks like you might have the Co-Pilot 360+. I was concerned the lights/bar would effect or block the sensor in the middle of the lower grill. If you do have the 360+ can you confirm if there are any issues with the sensor being blocked?

Thank you!!

I thought for sure it would mess up the copilot and all of the sensors in the front but to my surprise i still have all of it available with no quirks at all.

Since the round lights come in pairs of two, I wired the outside two to the first switch and the inside two to the second switch
Does RC provide wiring instructions? I found the installation guide for the nudge bar but it doesn't go into detail on how to wire the lights themselves.

That’s surprising. You have lights installed practically right in front of the front radar. Do you have 360+ ? If so, does the adaptive cruise control still work? If you don’t have that, what indication did you see that makes you think it’s still working for things like emergency braking? If it really has no impact on the radar, I will may purchase this.

Does anyone know if you can buy a nudge bar with the Badlands ?? The RC one doesn't work if you have tow hooks in the front. Just curious ??

Do you know if the Rigid D-Series cube lights will fit instead of the RC lights? From the pics on their website the mounts looks pretty close to the front grill. It looks amazing too!
