    Tbone bumper ?

    Do you need some of the stock ft bumper parts to make this work?
    Mounting it directly to the front skid, there is nothing to hold the suspension pins in.

    Everything from the stock bumper have to stay in place. You just need to put the bumper over everything....




    As you see in the second pic, I had to dremel a little bit the bumper because of the shock guards....

    If you mean the 3 countersunk screws under the tb bumper, I gotem. I am gonna use sway bars. Need to figure out how to make them work with the shock guards also.

    yeah, that's what I meant, about the three countersunk screws.
    I don't have sway bars, but I think they might replace the little plastic spacer over the screw that hold the shock guards...
    I'm just saying that from the pic I've seen because I have no idea ;-b

    If there is a spacer, then it should work fine, as long as there is no binding, just have to use hollow balls instead of the sways ball ends... I thought about not using the shock guards, but there is not much kick up in the front suspension, leaving the shocks and sway ends in harms way...

    Just found something that might be interesting for you:
    Hot Racing sway bars without losing the shock guards

    Pop out the ball end and use hollow balls from a E-Revo.

    I'm running an RPM bumper and sway bars, with 3.2 rims with big tires. Had to do a little "Dremeling" on the shock guards, but you can make it all work together.
