    Been driving my toaster for a year already.
    taken it off-road quiet a bit but most of the time i scrape the low hanging stock bummper.
    looking to put in the TH bumper.
    Has anyone done this upgrade?

    I see the radiator is low and I know I will have to bring that up a bit.
    Its that gets to complicated I might just do the avid prerunner bumper.

    There wouldn’t be any problem putting a TH bumper on a non-TH model.

    Under the skin, they are pretty much the same.

    The only real difference with the Trailhawk’s and the non-Trailhawk models is in their lower control arms (heavy duty ball joints), the springs are .8 inches taller (installed) and different 4 wheel drive options. The frames are almost identical.

    There maybe a little deference with the 1.4L turbo models because of their intercooler, but I am not sure.

    UPDATE:

    The Trailhawk's radiator is mounted 3" higher.
    The lower core support raises the Trailhawk's radiator 3" and the radiator's upper mount's clip into the upper slots.
