I really hate most of the aftermarket bumper options out there. This one is legit!!! I really, really like it. I would buy one if I didn't already have another.

I'm attaching a couple of pics to show a couple of tweaks to the standard formula:
1) No TRD logo
2) Removed winch holes
3) No shackle points
4) No high-lift notches
5) Left and right panels filled with plate steel
6) Kept upper light bar, but not the supports
7) Powder coated black with light texture

My truck was in a pretty nasty wreck where I realized the factory front protection is pathetic. I don't have 4x4 or a winch, but I will have added strength if someone decides to run a red light again.

The alignment on the bumper is off very slightly, but that's because of the wreck and has nothing to do with the bumper.

Very happy with this purchase. It was cheaper than replacing with factory parts!
Thanks for the props man..truck looks good

Call Billy and talk to him about your money situation. Hes a really good guy and im sure will work with u the best he can! Heres the links to both gbs . . . . .

I get to see a lot of different bumpers on customers trucks. I know how much goes into making these things, especially small batch, hand finished bumpers.
I recently had a customer in the shop that had one of Billy's front full plate bumpers. I gotta say, top notch for sure. He's got skills and is putting out a nice quality product.

bump

Are the reinforcement plates extra/required? Mine is on order, would like to make sure I have everything I need.

Kind of confused. Do the 2 bolt holes go before or after the bumper?

Also do I need to drill a hole for the side plates? Only one whole lines up.



Frame Bracket over the bumper



Only one of the bolts has a hole to line up with. Do I need to drill a hole for the second bolt?

For street use, I don't think you need the supports. If you are getting pulled out of holes a lot or using jack points often, probably a good idea - especially at Billy's price point. I have them and they fit perfectly.

I do wonder if they strengthen the crumple zone too much in front. Your airbag may go off in a lighter frontal accident than it would otherwise.

Having a conversation on the TW FB page, wondering which is correct. Where did everyone put the little plates that come with the bumper and the bolts?

Mine is the one in all black, the other is a guy who just installed his today.
