Is this a shady buy? Advice please

I'm buying a 98 Tacoma and am looking for a front bumper, with a winch mount, and a rear bumper with a swing out tire rack, and a roof rack. Any suggestions on the best place to look?

What is the shady part? The Tacoma or places to get bumpers? I bought my 1999 from car max six years ago with 56 or 57 K on the clock. She runs like A CHAMP.

Wait...is this the one about the rabbit with the pancakes on its head?

Don't buy any parts until you buy the truck. Best would be buy a used bumper and repaint it.
