Good to know and you know they love these posts as well! I am thinking of a U-bolt flip for my 2nd gen...

I ended up taking the cheap and easy way . I just welded the stock bump to the new plate . I haven't had any issues yet . But I'm sure toytec can give you better advise .

If I had easy access to a welder and knew how to weld that might be an option...

Anyone using something that just bolts in, or wondering if you could drill a hole in the frame side and mount the bump stop that way.

I'm sure you could just drill a few hole in the bump plate and in the frame and invert them .
XXXX. Did in this thread but he welded to the frame . Same idea just bolt on .

Thanks, looks like you could just take the front Superbumps from Wheelers, invert them, drill a hole in the metal bump stop and mount them there. Might need to add a spacer to lower the bump stop, but shouldn't need much.


EDIT:
A set of 4.5" Energy Suspension Bump Stops might work will too.

Only concern would be bottoming out the shocks. I would need to measure before I do anything.

Has anyone found that this kit works with OME Dakars?

And what is it about the bump stops that everyone keeps asking about? Do you have to take the stock ones off to put this kit on?

I contacted ToyTec directly and they told me this setup would work, so I ended up ordering it for my truck. I installed it, and like S4RSSS said, the u-bolts are too short. It can be assembled, but the u-bolts will only pass ~2/3 of the way through the nuts, so definitely not ideal. I will need to order some 8" u-bolts (instead of the 7-3/4" u-bolts that come with the ToyTec kit) in order for this setup to work properly.

yup, about 2/3 of the nut is right.... sorry you had to find out the hard way, man.
