Holly crap!! You can ram through a building or choose to pull it down with that truck while submerged in water.

You are correct. It is recommended that rear differential, transmission, and transfer case breathers be raised if water crossings are anticipated. It is also known as a "scuba mod".

My wife was looking over my shoulder when I was checking out this ARB bumper. She said if that thing ends up on my GX your buying me an RX. Bumper looks freaking sweet.

I think it can work. This year's Lexus front end may have made things a little difficult, but with the right amount cutting, modifying, and $$$, it could work. I'm just waiting for the guinea pig to be the first one to pull this off first

Tuff looking ride, what's up with the extension ladder tent? Guessing bears, wolfs and snakes would be the reason? I have never seen that but it would be a practical comfort sleeping area.

Yes! That's exactly what roof-top tents are for, to keep you off the ground from predators, snakes, and wet ground if it downpours. A big must have for camping since the cargo area of the GX is limited.

Kinda sucks you lose the LED fogs with the Bull Bar...I am installing this ARB Bull Bar for my 4Runner this weekend...

...and the comment on the differential...YES - the Diff Breather Mod - basically raising the breather above the water line...I did this for my T4R using fuel line and OEM parts - only needed for the rear diff as the front is already routed into the engine bay.

I have an ARB Bumper on my FJ. It is a pretty awesome top quality product. It's a little on the heavy side, but I don't mind it. Plus it's one of the few airbag compliant bumpers out there.

Yep, they do seem a little heavy but once you pull it out of the box it is actually the sum of all the parts that is heavy - the bull bar is reasonable for what it is. The build quality is great. I asked my wife if I should add the bumper to the 2014 GX and she was not game at all...lol

I'll ask again in a few years when the new car smell wears off.

Wow, my wife is going to hate me... First day on the forum and I find this.

We just bought a new GX and she told me not to touch it.

I have the same bumper on my truck and love it:
