    I've searched the site and haven't seen anything about roll pans on the Tacomas. Any of you guys/gals have roll pans? Are they easy to install? are they worth it? When I bought my truck a year ago the rear bumper had a few rust spots, but now it has large patches of rust and it looks ugly. I've sanded it dow and painted it and stuff like that, but it just keeps rusting through. I was thinking about buying a new bumper, but I do like the look of the roll pans as well. Don't really need the rear step to get into the bed. Hope I'm not doing a repost, but I couldn't find anything on roll pans.

    ...too much shit to list.
    You're better off with Google than TW for rollpans. Not most people's cup of tea here.

    Thanks man, I know people don't really like em on here but was wondering if anyone by chance did have one or try one. I don't do any wheeling in mine, nor is it a street truck. I just do regular daily driving and put it to work hauling stuff here and there as well as doing odd jobs. The rusty bumper is just a real eyesore, and I think the roll pans are pretty sleek looking.

    I also have no way to weld it on so I do need to find one that is bolt on if I do it.

    I would rock a roll pan because I agree it looks clean IMO but I've backed into a tree and been rear ended in the last year or so and the damage would've been 10 times worse if I had a roll pan instead of a bumper.

    I wonder if someone who rear ended you could make the argument that the damage wouldn't have been as severe if you had a bumper and try to get out of paying for it. Is it illegal to run without a bumper?

    I'm not sure, I see a lot of people around my area that have roll pans on S-10s and crappy trucks like that. It might not be legal, and the damage would be worse. You have made a good point. Maybe I will just find another bumper to throw on there. My Front bumper is chrome so I think I want to keep the rear chrome or the same color as the truck, not black.

    Hmm. . . . Got thinking to do now.

    Had a roll pan on my old Silverado that was bagged and shaved. Got rear ended by my buddy that was going maybe 5 mph, did nearly $2000 in damage. I will never again run a roll pan on anything, they look cool but offer zero protection.

    Yeah, more I think about it I'm not going to put one on. . . I'm in a debate on whether I want to keep the Tacoma or get a newer '06-'08 4Runner. Really torn lol. I think I'm just going to do some sanding and paint again. Talked to a budy who had the same problem on his Frontier and he sanded it down real good, put a layer of bondo on the spots he sanded, sanded that smooth, then painted; said its been over a year and it looks good might do that.

    Konaborne, I should have also mentioned I've taken a razor, a scaper, a wire brush, and sandpaper to the spots. Still shows through. I think it is from a towing ball the previous owner had in the bumper rather than a hitch and he hit the bumper on both sides of the ball. Might do what I just stated above, it seemed to work pretty good on my friends Frontier.
