    Do you plan to mount a winch or anything like that or do you just want a prerunner style bumper?

    They all look pretty good but I think I prefer the BeefedTaco one slightly. (from taco me elmo's build.)[​IMG]

    Of course, no possibility of adding a winch I guess if you get one in the future?

    What do they cost? And more importantly, which one is made out of the strongest material?

    Anything is possible, I wanted one that will never have a winch but there is plenty of room behind the skid for one, and yeah its seriously strong stuff some of the thickest tubing he could get.

    Exact details would be better from him.

    I paid $320 for mine, but he has 4 trim options for my style bumper.

    Mine was the cheapest with the least amount of flare.

    Thanks for the new phone wallpaper with the first one! Who made it and do you know what kind of steel was used? As well as its thickness? I wonder how much a Ti bumper would be. That'd be sick.... one can dream.:rolleyes:

    Did you have to do any extra fabrication to get this to fit your '98-'00 body style? I thought these bumpers were only for '01-'04.

    Glad you like the pic.
    My bumper is an allpro that has been modified. here is more info http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-tacomas/177069-allpro-bumper-modified.html.

    I have seen a few similar bumper since, I believe AVID made one similar for a customer. Ti for a bumper would be some serious coin.

    Only thing I had to do was cut 3" off the end of the frame. Nothin too complicated.
