    Just got it, so none yet.
    Hi everyone. I just bought my first Tacoma, an 03 reg cab 4x4. Seeing as I couldn't wait to mod this thing, I was searching and really wanted the ARB bumper. I'm not that mechanically inclined so my question is do I have to cut anything to put the ARB bumper on? I was reading somewhere you have to cut the factory mounting brackets off and replace it with the ARB ones. I just don't have the tools to do it and need to start searching if I will be doing any welding.

    Sorry if this is a repost, but I searched and couldn't really find what I was asking about. [​IMG]
