    Thanks Rob,

    Jerry just finished powder coating it. And my brother picked it up but took it to Sac. And it's now at my parents in Tracy waiting to get picked up.

    Do you have any rubbing with your wheel/tire setup?

    Yes, I have rubbing in front at full turn (tire on frame) and at the rear when the tire is stuffed (tire to fender)

    Got my bumper back, freshly powder coated from BAMF, and installed.

    I couldn't get one bolt in. Think it will be a problem?

    If you winch off of it, then yes, definitely you need to get that bolt in and also get some plates to tie it down farther down the frame. (unless you have some already)

    Bumper looks really good though.

    Thanks Matt, I will definitely be using this to winch off of. Not sure about the the plates though. I'll look into that.

    Would you recommend getting a new bolt?

    Thanks. I just saw your truck. It's definitely a great build. Can't wait to see the sliders. I just ordered a pair of BAMF sliders myself. Hopefully get those soon.

    Does it not line up or something? You need all the strength you can get if you're going to be winching from the bumper. Call / PM JLee (B.A.M.F) who is a vendor on here about the bumper brackets. He should be able to help you out if you give him some pictures and/or measurements of what you need.

    These are mine from B.A.M.F to give you an idea of what they look like if you've never seen them before.

    The thread seems to be damaged.


    I'll definitely talk to JLee about the brackets thanks.

    Nice taco. Are your tail lights tinted? If so how many coats of spray did you use?

    Looks real good, the kickouts are badass. Hit me up if you go down to hollister. Only been once, and would like to go more. Just a little limited by lack of (good) tires, sliders and recovery shiznit... Should have the cb up and running tonight though.

    Thanks.


    Not sure if youve seen the NorCal thread but we are always setting up meets in hollister and other cool places.

    link: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/northern-california/

    Hollister is fairly simple and not much need for a trail dedicated rig for the most part. But i'll definitely hit you up.

    Yeah, I'm just not there yet. Wanna make sure I have at least the tires sliders and recovery gear before going out with the pros... :) I follow the NorCal thread. Cool stuff! I'll make it out to the next meet.
