ARB Bumper Question

Greetings TW, question: I tow my Tacoma behind my motorhome.
My question is, based on the photo below, can I possibly mount an ARB bumper and still have access to the plug and towing points?

Thank you in advance.

Ive never heard of anyone doing that before. I'm not sure how it would work. I would call ARB in WA and ask.

Maybe someone can post a similar pic of their mounted ARB for comparison?

It would be close, my first impression is no though.

I'd take a pic of my bumper like that but it was just wrecked and could be deceiving.

Maybe you should have read your owner's manual. It specifically states that the Tacoma is not designed to be towed behind a motorhome, unless it is on a trailer.

Maybe you should ask how I do it before giving out advice Einstein.....
I have a Remco drive shaft disconnect, been towing for three years over 15 thousand miles with NO issues.

Next time you hop into a thread Froggy, be helpful, and know what you're talking about before you hit the button junior.

ARB's instructions: http://store.arbusa.com/Assets/PDF/3423030i.pdf

Look at photo #4. I think the mounting bracket will interfere with your tow points.

Thanks Ken, hard to tell from that photo.
If you look at photo 38 it looks like it might work....
If not ARB I wonder if any other similar plate bumpers would work with my situation?
I'm open to other suggestions if the ARB is a no go.

Could your towing points be added to the ARB bumper?

I'd have to see more of your tow points before I could give you an answer. I think you'd be able to do it if you modified the Stone Guard on the ARB. It's thin metal so it's really easy do if needed.

The Demello bumper looks to be clear around the bottom crossmember:

Thanks Andy. Any chance you might have a photo during installation without the stone guard on?
