    TacoMeet_5a57f0ca9dfdb160e0dceb8d310fe759fe66f2e6.jpg


    My first mod was DT long tube headers

    Then came the front suspension

    Here is what I worked on this past weekend. Found my bumper was kind of loose so I just figured the bolts had worked their way out a bit. I haven't had the bumper off since the initial install over 2 years ago. I removed the front bumper to regrease the winch and found that the mounts were cracked and my front bumper was probably ready to fall off pretty soon :eek:

    13F0E217-DF99-446E-9B99-04236882B88D_zps_713ce1c50d2b284a406019227f35d5826c797a23.jpg

    14739A95-0EA3-4B3C-8C66-A8588EFD380C_zps_a22faa6619ef36795b190bbc1565ab8e1e84067c.jpg

    I am not sure if they cracked from the vibrations or some heavy winching but I wasn't going to remount the bumper before they were right.

    Ditched the crappy Toyota studs they supply
    9BFCC7EF-68DB-40D5-BB5A-E711F0D60E78_zps_9d821661c98377070645de006822402785e9e2aa.jpg

    Repaired the cracked welds and cleaned the mounts up
    577B5679-BFFE-49E3-B878-C06A74F25BF3_zps_eede0ececb158d158885b5dde7ca5db18561e149.jpg

    Drilled out the holes to accept 1/2" grade 8 hardware, added a 1/4 plate in front.

    On the back side I added 1/4" angle iron drilled out to the template of the outer frame mounts, had to cut the front body mount a little bit, it gets tied back in once I'm finished

    The inner frame mounts get 1/4" angle iron as well bolting through an exiting hole in the frame

    I drilled two new holes in the bumper right where the winch area sits

    Mocking up a new crossmember

    Gussets added to the mounts

    Burned into the frame

    Front plate tied into the frame and front body mount

    Cut this body mount a bit too high so I added a peice of plate back in :eek:

    Painted up

    Inner frame rail gusset painted up

    3C3B2F54-B49C-46C3-A947-030EBD4AE418_zps_cf289fde41d4b01595337a07b3c5aaf8cd46f671.jpg

    Outer reinforcement burned in and painted
    3B718D96-C738-4A17-85EE-5A3765215ACD_zps_e4f972c29918c12c2a2d4ac6ee0a29bb42149468.jpg

    The bumper feels 1000x sturdier than before and I added 4 additional mounting points for a total of 14 and the front mounting points on the frame are now 1/2" thick instead of the 12 gauge steel they provide from the factory. Should be good to go now :D
