    Hey guys, Im pretty new to the scene so bear with me here. Im getting ready to do some shopping for my project truck and was thinking about a high clearance front bumper. Im not really looking for a winch bumper as they tend to be heavier than im wanting and Im leaning more towards the "desert style" that i can throw some lights on. Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    trd sport with avid off road light bar, avid rock sliders. OEM roof rack, 12' LED light bar, and Sock monkey decals.
    there is a couple of Baja front bumpers which are light and not the plate bumper.
    and also there is just the regular tube bumper which is light and both the baja and tube can fit lights.
    now i dont know if they have made their 12 model yet but you can certainly look at some at talk to the guys.
    relentless has a tube bumper i think
    and blanking on the others imma look it up real quick

    and ^^ he beat me to it. but that link is the best one for you

    Bumpers designed for '05-'11 trucks will fit '12, but there will be a wide gap between the bumper and the grille. I've recently seen Relentless Fab prototype a specific '12 bumper that closes the gap. May want to have a look.
