    Been thinking about getting a 2012 bumper to see if it could be mounted on a earlier Tacoma. What would be a reasonable price for one?

    I found one some what scratched and dents but they want just shipping $160 that's the only reason I wouldn't get it more than what they want for the bumper it self

    I would be switching the hood bumper and grill. From pictures it seems that the headlights and grill mount on the same locations as the 05-11

    Those look like they mount on the same place just can't tell if the bumper does

    All I can say is, you better be absolutely sure. If not, you're either in it for 1,500+ to actually complete the front end, or you wasted 160 on a bumper you can't use

    You'd need the bumper, grille, headlights, hood, and front fenders to do a total facelift.

    I know what i need to do it. I wouldn't be wasting more than 300 to prep paint nad everything else. I would only be buying the parts. I just don't know if 160 just to ship the bumper is reasonable. The shipping is more than the actual bumper

    I like the front end of the new ones, But I'm not looking into getting a new truck, I just got a new car.

    Go to the dealer and look at it up close.
    It would look good if you can pull it off & good luck , post pics if you do it

    Better deal would be to trade in for a '12. You'll need to replace the whole front including fenders and hood.

    I read this briefly as "go to the dealer and pull off the bumper to look"...
