Also. If they have not fixed the problem with the fitment here, you might have to trim a little bit to get it to fit properly.
I have the 1st gen tube bumper and not the baja like yours but just check the fitment real well. Install all the bolts loosely before you tighten them up.
I had to trim 1/2-3/4 of an inch in the location shown and I believe tacomorroto had to do the same.


I think you will also have to remove your hook or tow loop. And niether may bolt back up in the same spot. Hence the shackles on mine.

Beat the shit out of the bumper and make it fit.
Is there anyway you can get a hi-lift jack inbetween the 2 mounting brackets and spread them ever so slightly?

Are your mounting brackets painted? If so you may have to take the paint down to primer then mount it. My tg bumper took alot of persuading to fit. so keep trying before taking it down

x2. I like the AP bumper for many reasons (almost bought one), but DANG the Baja hoops are stupid looking. The only time they seem to look appropriate is on a fully decked out LT desert truck, and even then it's too much IMO.

Nice job either way.
