tube bumpers

does anyone have a design or plans to follow on making a tube bumper for a 2001 tacoma. i wanted to use 2" square tubing however, the issue is, do i use the existing mounts and adapt them to the tube bumber or do i have to make a whole new getuup.

if youre fabricating...its really up to you...however i suspect that most people use the factory mounting locations...

are you talking front or rear tube bumper? because I've made both, and i found the stock brackets on the front to be extremely weak (mounted to the rad saddle) so if you plan on using them, i wouuld mount it straight to the frame
