I just went out and took a few pics of my truck. This a NFab light bar. I bought it from Duck Comander last week and sprayed with Duplicolor bedliner. Then mounted some Hella lights today.

that is sweet looking man but terry from allpro says that the sheet metal bumper which is the one that has light tabs, which is the one u have, weighs 91 lbs and the tube they sell only weighs 81 lbs but has no light tabs. see im afraid the front of the tacoma already weighs too much . because in mud my front end sunk like crazy first and all i have is a bull bar on it rt now. i cannot find any pics of the allpro tube bumper on a truck 05 and up to see if it looks uneven or wierd or whatever. there has got to be a way to mount lights since their tube bumper does not come with light tabs but no one seems to know if they can be mounted to the front grill somehow or something like that. .

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

If you get the tube bumper, have an off road shop weld some light tabs on for you. SHould only take a couple of zaps with a welder, AND they will be right were YOU want them.

I saw this in the 4wd Toyota Owners mag.. Should be lighter due to not having all the plating.. check out www.badlandbumpers.com

i dunno if badlands is making bumpers for the 05+...but ive heard those bumpers are REALLY heavy and the fit aint always great...a lot of folks have needed to do a little fab work to make them fit right

good looking bumpers though for sure


arb's arent really all that heavy in the world of offroad bumpers...i think mine weighs in between 75 and 80lbs...my tubed rear bumper weighs almost the same amount and its MUCH smaller...i see what the OP is saying about weight and the front end dropping in mud...however you have to remember that your front end is carrying the majority of your truck...beds dont weigh anything...motors and drivetrains do...

i dont think its an isolated issue to your truck with the front end sinking...
