    I hope so. Been dreamin up a hybrid bumper for a few months, and was getting real irritated that I couldn't find a single one in production (at least that I liked). I was starting to think I'd have to go to my friend who owns a fab shop (Dirt Designs, formerly Akros Motorsports) but I didn't really wanna pay for the design work too. Then I was strollin a few posts here on TW and came across JBlazes truck and I knew if I could swing the money I needed this bumper. I'll definitely post up pics when I get it mounted and everything.

    Stumpjumper, did you ever get your bumper and get it mounted? I want to build one and want to see some full body shots of it on a truck. I can't find any full body shots of JBlaze's

    I like the look of this one. I am still trying to decide tho. Just to clarify something, OP, what is the price for the bumper exactly as it is pictured in the first photo, but winch ready?

    I forgot about this thread - and just stumbled across it. I have been helping my Dad build his 01' Tacoma up over the past 6 months. During the GB from BruteForceFab we called Billy and had him make front/rear bumpers, and sliders for the Tacoma. I then had them painted with an industrial grade gunmetal metallic paint (used on semi trailers in the oil field...). Fitment and built quality were superb.

    Sliders weren't mounted yet when I took these pics but you get the idea. Front Hybrid bumper with custom bolt-on filler plates (now painted...):
