Removal/Installation of Rear Bumper

Easier than expected, you'll need just a few tools and the hands of at least 2 other friends.
Here's the scoop with our "Bumper Swap."
Edrin55 / 09 Tacoma Access Cab w/ no hitch. This truck is not a PreRunner.
Before Picture


Rpparkster / 09 Tacoma 4x4 Double Cab
Before Picture


Before you start, unplug the lights from both sides of the license plate. They should turn down and pull out.


Tools needed. Plus a flat head screw driver.


3/4 Wrench to hold the nut from moving while using the 3/4 socket on the top. This is in the middle of the bumper above the hitch.


Use a flathead screw driver to pop up those little squares up from the inside (closest to the license plate) and lift up. They do not pop straight up. Lift the center round section of that pop-in thing to pop it out.




In addition to that, there are two more small bolts under the cover (underneath). You'll need a 10mm socket to remove those two.


11/16 socket for the remaining 4 bolts (2 on each side). There are a lot of bolts under there. Remove the two closest to the bumper. If yours are the same as these, they will be black in color while the other ones are in silver. Remember, this is from the Double Cab with a hitch.


The brackets holding the rear bumper are different on that of a NON-PRERUNNER. However, the pattern (the two bolts being removed on each side) is the same. Remove the two closest to the bumper. Notice these are not black like the others.

Once the bolts are removed, it will take at least two people to remove the bumper away from the truck EVENLY.
Once it's off, you'll need the support of your friends to push in the bumper back in place. It's a little tough. Use gloves and a rubber mallet if you have it handy. If not, it's ok. Just be careful to not hit the truck as you're putting/pushing it back in.

Edrin55's new look!


Rpparkster's new look!


Be careful not to bend these tabs.


Another successful mod. Thanks for looking.

That looks so familiar. Nice write up, feel like I was actually there...haha.
Only catch is getting it back on in the clips. It did take a little force and by the time we were putting the second one back on we had it dialed in. If you can't get it to fit, hold one side in and put the other side "on top" of the clip and force it down w/ some weight. Thanks for the pics and great write-up Al.

Good post, getting it off and back in was a PITA with oakleyTRD and myself...

One thing I'll mention that might be a wise idea (even though we didn't do it), taking out the rear tails might make for a better piece of mind because when you're pulling on it that hard and trying to put it back in... more than a couple of times we came close to ramming the bumper into one of the tails.

Oh yea, color matched BSP ftw

Nice, I just replaced my wife's bumper which was all mangled from an accident. Before I put the new one back on, I took a sledge and hit on the end of the mounts a bit to widen them out a bit. Made putting the new one back in a little easier and then they bend back in as you tighten the bolts. I tightened each side a little at a time so that it would pull them in evenly.

Thank you. Rpparkster did help. It was a learning experience for all of us.



Good point to bring up about the lights. I remember we were close too, but we knew to keep it away and push down at the same time.

If anyone is interested in a black bumper and can’t find someone to swap with, you can purchase the bumper “skin” from these folks www.toyotapartsbarn.com. The part No. is 5215104907 and runs about $164.00 plus shipping. Unlike what you describe in this thread, the above mentioned part is more just the outer bumper skin – no structural pieces are attached and you will have to use your existing brackets, corner supports, and plastic finish pieces. The bumper comes in a black primer ready to paint the color of your choice. I just replaced the chrome bumper that I had torn up, here’s the link to the thread.
