Any update to photos of using the 360 camera with the summit bumper?

Has anyone installed the Summit bumper, and if so does it make your front end sag? Does it change the front end handling? Did you have to get a front end alignment?

Can the Summit be installed without the brush bars? Would love a clean solution for a fully loaded Bronco without all of the extra bars.
It is not removable. It’s a pretty solid piece. I love the look and the functionality. I am not rock crawling with it. So it suits my purpose. Very well built. I have the Lux pkg and everything is working at this time

Ok, side bar: I’m going to get neurotic now….

Honestly I’m not a fan of the removable brush guard trend. I understand it from a business case perspective (SKU management, production efficiency, shipping, etc).

If a bumper is going to have any tube work I prefer them to be fully fabricated with the bumper & welded on.

If a consumer chooses not to add the brush gaurd option then the bumper is left with a bunch of holes.

end random side bar. Please return to your normally scheduled programming.

Also curious why you didn’t go with a more standard cut off for fog lights to allow different kits to be mounted? It looks like if I go with the Summit I have to go with your fog lights as well correct?
I put diode dynamic elite in mine. No issues

AND the fastened brush guard puts all those little fasteners in shear upon impact. Horrible design for impact of large “things”. It works to deflect branches, etc….light stuff. Cannot beat welded on
