    If you are a basher...yes you need it ..you just don't know it yet... and if you are a basher who likes 3s wheelies you also need the wheelie
    bar that attaches to the back bumper
    if its not broken, bash harder

    I've got a used full T-Bone setup that I'll sell and ship. Complete with the wheelie bar. Their stuff has a lifetime warranty, so if it breaks, you just send them a pic, then they ship you a replacement.

    So you think...have you smacked a still object at high speeds yet and snapped your chassis? Its almost inevitable with these things

    My 4 piece T-Bone is probably my favorite upgrade so far.....smacking a curb at 40 mph and not watching half of the suspension crumble and fly apart made me a believer.

    you think you dont need a t bone.. haha.. unless you dont ever run into anything then you prolly dont.. otherwise IT IS A MUST HAVE!!! will save you hundreds on broken parts.. The t bone is by far the bashers best friend, am i right guys?? i have hit many things at almost top speed and nothing happened but a scratch on the t bone. i have done jumps and landed nose first again just dirt on the t bone..
    I REPEAT A MUST HAVE!!!!
    kinda like asking do i need a parachute on my top fuel dragster. (no not rc dragster)

    I knew I needed it, and broke my chassis while waiting for the part(s). Now I have a brand new tbone and chassis on back order.

    This would be the 3-piece kit. Front and rear bumper + wheeliebar.



    I dont do big jumps, so decided against the full bottom skid. To save some weight and that i can work on the font and rear diffs indepently without the need to unmount the whole plate everytime.

    I have broken the front bumper once. WOT against/under a 1/1 car tire, bumper broke but the MERV was perfectly saved. T-Bone replaced the broken one for free.
    A working upgrade with lifetime warranty. Everyone should have one.

    This... minus the two pieces you see on either side of it.. that go out wide.. it would still help.. but wouldnt protect your a arms and rods as much.. if your only going to get one my suggestion is get the front bumper thrasher i think is the one you need that way if you decide to get the botom skid plat it bolts up to it.. the other one wont bolt up to the mid skid plat..


    hey pm me i have a middle t bone i have only used one time. i got it along with the front bumper and didnt realize i got the one that dont bolt to each other.. i even still have the pack it come in. i'd let you get it cheaper than you could buy it.

    The 3 piece is the chassis brace, front and rear bumpers. The 4 piece is those + the wheelie bar. That's from their website.

    I wish I'd have gotten the wheelie bar when I got it. But it's not adjustable that's the only thing I don't care for about it..
