    The cool thing about working in the industry is seeing all the cool new stuff that hasnt been released to the public. Even cooler is getting to babysit a manufacturers SEMA vehicle at the shop. The guys from Body Armor decided to drop off their newest show piece at our store in Temecula, and I wanted to throw out the invitation for anyone interested to come by and drool over it while its here. Some of the cool features are front winch mount AND the only bumper I know of to allow the use of the Tacoma factory fog lights if desired (no need to spend hundreds more on aftermarket lights if you dont want to). The rear has an optional tire carrier (and soon a single fuel or water can & light lift jack mount). The steps are tucked up for maximum clearance and the trail rack is still being developed. Pricing is extremely competitive and quality is top notch, but come by and see it for yourself! I cant quote pricing over the forums, so drop by or call for info!

    I won't.

    Front bumper is too large, but does throw out more variety in the market then like allpros/relentless.

    The rack is kinda cool but I don't like the forward angle of the back.

    I like the rear bumper though.

    I like the roof/bed rack as well but I too wonder what the weight capacity may be on it.

    They are aftermarkets, the production bumpers will allow the use of the factory Taco bumper fogs. Just tryin' to share some options, we also carry Road Armor, Fab Fours, ARB and more...

    i think the capacity for the tie downs is 40? or 80? lbs. so that roof rack isn't going to hold much...

    200lbs. pull strength.

    When you've tied something to them that is only applying a tangential load, you could probably tie down a max payload without any trouble.

    I still don't like the look of the roof rack one bit.

    Or the rest of this thing for that matter. But meh, I haven't had a chance to inspect it up close, so I really can't say much.
