Smile Who's ready?

Update:
New pics here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/rel...ml#post2480960

My 2005+ Tacoma rear plate bumpers are ready!
Here are some pics of my base bumper prototype that I just got together finally. There will be a few little adjustments made to the final design, basically just a little beefing up(extending the top plate to box in corners, adding a strip of steel along the edge of the side pieces) but this is the design of them (well, missing the shackle points still of course)!

Its made out of CNC cut 3/16" steel, with 1/4" mounting plates, and 3/4" thick recovery points just like my front bumpers. This is about as high clearance as you can go in a rear bumper while still fitting the license plate and not cutting your bedsides.
One of the things I'm pretty happy with, is that it is designed in a way that the factory license lights will still fit in this bumper! So no searching for a way to light up your license plate, or being forced into using cheap looking aftermarket lights!

I'll post more info soon along with pricing and options available, as well as finished pics of it on my truck next week.

Thanks!
No, will not work with the factory hitch due to the size difference between this and the stock bumper. You'll gain about 6" of clearance with this bumper over the stock with hitch, plus with the corners angled like this there is even more clearance at the corners. I'll be able to add a hitch to these though.

Can you explain how you will have to go about adding a new hitch? Will you be able to tow?

The hitch will be welded right under the license plate mount under the center of the bumper, then will be braced with some more 2" tubing off the top/side(whatever works best when i get to it) directly to the mounting plates. You can use it to tow, but I cannot claim a towing capacity since it will not be certified like the factory or regular after market hitches. Simply do not want that liability on my shoulders.

Thanks Wes. I'l add pics as soon as I build one with a hitch. The next one I build will be for my own truck most likely, and I will want a hitch under there because I do tow with my truck.
