2nd gen Tacoma tube bumper build

The tube design



Plates cut for the uprights


Tacked to the mounting plate


Test fitting


Bending the front upright plates with my homemade plate bender


Back on the truck with the front upright plate tacked on


Passenger upright all tacked together


Both uprights ready for finish welding




Taking some scrap tube and the hole saw cutouts from the uprights to make the body mount slugs




Body mount slug bolted down to take measurements


Bending the main hoop


Test fitting the main hoop


Building the crossmember that bolts to the sway bar mounts and to the factory skid plate support mounts
