    Considering removing the front bumper off of my 06 tacoma. Was wondering if there were pics of no bumper at all. Also what are your thoughts on just a straight 3" or 4" piece of pipe as the bumper replacement? Might turn in to air tank eventually.

    Isn't there a thread of somebody that replaced their rear bumper with some PVC pipe??

    Unless you were going to swap out for an aftermarket bumper, why would you take it off? It looks pretty ugly off to be honest.

    This is with plastic outer bumper and aluminum inner removed. Of course I've added a tube bumper, but it'd be a really bad idea to run without any protection.

    agreed!! I'm just trying to get a bumper that will allow me better approach, but cheap. Thats why for now i'm thinking just a straight piece of pipe, with a aluminum skid continued off of the factory skid, and then i can add to it as i wish. IF i were a welder i'd build one hell of a bumper.
