    First of all, I searched and only found topics about this bumper for the 1st Gens. I apologize if I missed one about 2nd Gens.

    http://bajabumpers.com/gallery/?album=7

    This is the look I've always wanted (Prerunner/ Baja style) but I just don't know how functional / good this bumper is. Have you ever heard of it? I'm not planning on rock crawling to much, just trail running, sand at Pismo, a little desert and a few rock trails here and there. I searched and couldn't find anything for second gens, just first gens. I know it is not DOT approved but I've seen someone with one on a first gen rolling around and has had it on for about a year so I'm guessing he has not gotten any tickets for it. Thanks. :D

    I originally wanted all-pro but it might be a little to expensive for me and I won't be using its fully to its potential because I'm not planning on rock crawling. I'll check out Demello as well, thanks.

    You can install it yourself, shouldn't be to hard. And yea, it can be painted or powder coated.
