    Purchased the bumper on eBay for $525 shipped (best offer). Original listing $599. I’m pretty impress after install.

    OK, you convinced me and I bought it.
    1. What installation accessories did you require to install. Edging material etc.
    2. What winch did you use. Specifically looking for fitment.

    Super identical with my friends c4 bumper. The only thing I would of changed was the gaskets for the bumper trim. They provide you gloss gasket trims, I would prefer flat black.

    Looks like you didn't need to trim as much as with the C4, less opportunity to mess up. Looks great, nice find!

    OP do you have a side profile picture of this on your truck? I like the look from the front, Just want to make sure it doesn’t stick out too far from the side. These trucks have a big enough “chin” already lol

    Check out this thread: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/body-armor-hiline-series-bumper.625719/page-10#post-24682876

    There are tons of photos and tips for installation, including some recent photos of my install. The bumper barely sticks out further than OEM, but it looks very good. It's a great design overall.

    Edit: here's another thread with a good side view: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/slimline-low-profile-bumper-other-than-sso.605130/page-4
