    I am now accepting orders for my 2005 - Current Tacoma steel plate off-road winch bumpers

    Rear Bumper is in the works...


    For 96-04 Plate bumper - Click here

    Group Buy Specials!!!!!
    -One lucky person will be drawn after the 20 orders are filled to be refunded the total cost of the bumper! anyone on here will have the chance of receiving a FREE off road Plate bumper!

    -The first Five people to order will be drawn to either receive a free powder coating (color of their choice) or a refund of the cost of powder coating.


    To Order:

    1. Contact me with your exact order specs (what options you want, See below)
    2. Once your specific bumper option's are decided, send deposit of at least half the cost of the bumper to me via PayPal to get the build going.
    3. I build the bumper (in the order you're on the list and/or receive deposit) and then ship the bumper once the remaining cost + shipping fee is received.

    Bumper highlights:

    * 3/16" thick CNC water jet cut and MIG welded steel structure, winch mounting plate (8000-9500lb non-integrated solenoid winches only), 3/4" thick steel recovery points.
    * Optional recessed light cutouts for 4" Piaa or similar fog/driving lights
    * Optional tubing light hoop, or full grille guards
    * Optional logos/graphics/whatever can be cut into the steel via the water-jet shop. (at a surprisingly low extra cost!!) Make your bumper unique!!! I can do any custom mods (within reason of course) for only minor additional fees.


    Notes:
    Installation will require minor vehicle modification: removal of factory bumper and mounts, factory tow hooks, trimming of excess plastic inner fender liner from bottom of front fender wells.

    Shipping:
    Through Fastenal, cost will be determined by your location. Fastenal ships from one of their stores to another, not to a home address. To look up your local store, enter your zip code HERE. These bumpers are pretty big (around 100lbs) and require being strapped down to a pallet and freight shipping. I don't charge anything for the pallet, or my time of packaging them, all which deducts from my overall profit from the bumpers, so I assure you I'm not making a penny on shipping fees and you're getting the good side of the deal!

    Shipping price breakdown by location:


    • Pacific time zone ----- $55-80
    • MTN. time zone ------ $105
    • Central time zone ----- $130
    • Eastern time zone ---- $155
    • Hawaii --------------- $155
    Sorry, no shipping out of the US at this time, though I'm trying to get shipping to Canada figured out right now. Shipping across the border poses some difficulties though.


    I will be constantly updating this thread with information to better answer any questions that arise, feel free to ask a question if there is something you don't see an answer to. I will build as quickly as possible. Fast turn around, quality products, and customer satisfaction is my goal!!!

    Glad to see it's finally ready! I wish I didnt just order a set of sliders, otherwise I would order this right now. I might need to buy some new tires real soon, but I'll send you some money as soon as I can.

    I want to see how the center hoop looks, but most likely I will order the bumper with center hoop, fog light holes, and a couple Hi Lift notches.

    Good job Tim! :thumbsup:

    Frick'in sucks, I had to cancel my order.

    The wife went nuts when I told her I was going to buy a bumper after having bought wheels, tires and then nerf bars in the last 3 - 4 months.

    I am pissed cause Tim is offering a Hell-of-A Deal on a killer bumper..... guys don't let this deal get away.

    its alright man! gotta keep the wife happy haha

    yes they ship bare steel unless you want to pay for powdercoating. i'm learning to do it myself so once i know how to do it good the powdercoating will be cheap since i wont have to pay someone else

    the light hoop is on the next bumper i have built and i'll take some shots of it tomorrow. also if you have changes you want made to the hoop it can be changed how ever

    how much would it be for you to have someone powder coat it? And how much for you to do it, and how long until you are able to do it?
    I'd really like to see some better pictures of the bumper. It looks a little different than the one you sold to Canada. Will it work with skid plates? I want to get bud built but I need to know it will work with this bumper

    No problem. I'm looking forward to the new pics. I had to order tires today so that pushes my budget back a little bit, but depending on how these look, I might have to send you some money to hold my spot.
