Man, I can’t wait until I can get my rig to your place. I have to wait another 14ish months. NBD🤥
Bumper is looking good and super stout! I want to see the “TEQ” plates!

Well I'm late to the ordering deadline but cant wait to see the completed masterpiece as i too have an lx450 and my #1 threat historically and for the foreseeable distant future in every vehicle we ever owned is DEER! Even the most common brush guards or bull bars fold too easily at 60mph or more and that 200 lb buck lands in your lane 3 ft in front and thx to fog and/or 4 ft tall grass all the way from trees to the edge of pavement out here in the VERY rural areas I live. So I have had to reinforce some 200 lb trailfx bumper on front of my old dodge ram after the 7th deer strike in 2 years. But as these rambling run on sentences with no sense of proper punctuation may have alluded I am an adhd poster child and may have missed the posting but im in dire need of deer proofing my 80 that i finally was able to get after years of searching and things not working out. So as i try to improve my rig and get her maintenance up to par I'm sniffing for armor. Im curious and also wanting to say I want on a list for next buy if that's a thing.
Also green newb here so if I'm breaking rules or lack proper etiquette it's not with malice or on purpose it's fully ignorance but im trying. Im about hourish west of Augusta so Columbia is easy for me if need be. Any top notch upholstery places around Augusta area btw?

Got the lights and winch mounted.

With luck I'll get it all wired up this weekend.
That is looking great. The bumper looks quite stout. The more I read about the black oak lights, the more I like them. I’d like to see your real-world pics when you get that sweet doomsday bumper installed.

Its mounted to the rig! Planning on wiring everything up this weekend.

Here's the fit to the flares.

Fit of the winch solenoid cover to the valance.

Might need to trim the point that is sticking into the wheel well and get the shape a little better fitted to the wheel well.
But right now I am happier than a two peckered puppy that it's mounted to the rig, so that may wait a bit.

It didn't burn down when I fired the lights up... Yeah me!

The harness is set up as a single complete unit. Just in case I need to take it out some day.
The relay bracket is mounted to the hood hinge bolts and I set it up with room to grow.
