Rear Tube Bumper...Where?

Sick of the monstrostiy that is my rear bumper. Very obvious it was my first of my little custom bumpers.

So, I'm willing to spend and saving the $$ to obtain a "real" rear tube bumper.

Question is.

Where do I find one for a 05+ 5 Lugger. Or what will work?

Really, all the different vendors and stuff just makes my head muddy.

It's like looking for an item at a store, I'm just gonna find the nearest employee and ask where the hell it is.

I'm sorry to add a question of my own to the mix, but can a 4x4/prerunner rear bumper fit on our 5-lugs?

Holes in the mounting brackets would have to line up correctly and they would have to be spaced apart the same. Other than that, if those 2 things are the same.....

To my knowledge, yes. Front and rear should both fit.

So the same 3 holes that are in the frame are the same no matter prerunner/4x4/5 lug?

I mean, if thats so, then i feel really stupid and should just be looking at tube bumpers then.

Orly? I was under the impression that the fronts were incompatible...thus the reason why most 5-luggers rock custom bumpers.

...or is it just because we're all too poor?

Well, I mocked up a bumper for a 2012 2wd and it was identical to the mounting on all the prerunner/4x4's i've seen. I'd say that the 05-11 5 lug would likely be the same if the 2012+ is the same.

Alrighty, so then who might make a rear tube bumper for 2nd gens????

I literally just did a quick check of all the vendors and what they offer bumper wise and didn't see anything for 2nd gen tubes.

Someone...point me in the direction?

I do like your rear plate a lot eric, and its the most affordable.

Wouldn't be interested in possibly building me a tube bumper would you?

Get a hold with Brandon from Avid Offroad. He has built a rear bumper for a 5 lug 2005+. He gives TW members a discount on his prices.
