Demello bumpers and sliders on a 2013

I picked up a new Tacoma and then immediately called Jason at Demello. Actually called him before I bought the truck... Jason is a good friend and has help me build other trucks, so the choice of who's products would go on my truck was easy for me. He needed access to a 2013 and I needed some bumpers and sliders. Here is where we are thus far... sliders and rear bumper progress. The front will be a single hoop front bumper.

Hybrid sliders powder-coated in wrinkle-finish black...







Base of the rear high clearance bumper started... will be adding a swingout tire carrier, hitch and led backup lights...

Nice. Are you getting a front plate bumper from them too? Also, are you gonna relocate your backup camera?

Thanks! Yes on the front plate bumper. I will probably relocate the backup camera to somewhere on the bumper or in the center of the spare tire. Not to worried about the backup camera... I will find a home for it.

I cant wait to see what they do for a front bumper. I wasn't feeling Demellos first try in that other thread.
Shape and style was great, but I didn't like the fit.

I've always liked the lines on Jason's bumpers. I'll make sure to post plenty of pictures from all angles.

Thanks... No I do not plan on selling the FJC. I'm planning some upgrades to the suspension this summer. I love this thing too much to sell it.

Swing-out progress... I won't be adding a bunch of stuff (jerry cans, bike racks, kitchen sink, etc.) to the swing-out. At most I will add a hi-lift, but I'll use clamps to mount it. I told Jason I wanted a simple clean carrier with only the tire mounted. I also wanted the tire mounted lower. This truck won't see any hard trails... mainly fire roads to get to a favorite fishing spot... or to a great MTB trail. Later on down the road I can always add tabs, brackets or mounting points at home to accommodate stuff.

Thanks! I really like your Tacoma. Looked through your posts many times to get ideas. This rig will be a bit different... more of an expedition style. The FJC will always be my crawler.

Looking great. Have you thought about adding a small flange or some other guard to protect the lights?

I assume you're talking about the backup lights down low in the bumper? Hadn't thought of it, but that's a good idea.
