    TL;DR: These bumpers will fit 05-11 with minor modifications. A notch must be made to clear the AC line, and washers may need to be added to align the bumper properly. On 12+, it is too tight to the body to allow flex between the frame and the cab.

    As far as reliability, people have bashed these and winched from these with no problem. It is recommended that you get frame supports as found at various vendors if you want to do serious winching. @Sub-Zero is the man to ask any questions.

    Update as of 1630 Central:
    @Patch92 received his bumber.
    As of 1915, just waiting on a finished install and some pics. Said it didn't come with instructions but he used All Pros instructions and they worked great.
    As of 2013, it's mounted!!
    6/29/2016
    At 1830, @BrutalityBob recieved his bumper.
    6/30/2016 @ 1547
    All Pro chimes in on the matter
    At 2000 @Sub-Zero gets his bumper mounted
    Another member received and mounted both front and rear bumpers.

    UPDATE 7/5/2016
    Member receives rear instead of a front bumper

    They do look pretty badass. So do you have to do any cutting to make them fit or do they bolt right up?

    This looks like shit, and for no obvious reason for it to not follow the body line.

    Agreed. The front doesn't look that bad, but meh. If it doesn't bother you, be wary... eBay...

    Another thing I'm curious about is it explicitly states there is no lift, but those are clearly 5100s. Who installs 5100s and doesn't get lift out of them?

    I just called the seller, they said 3/16th cold rolled steel. They come powdercoated and bolt right up to an 05-15 Tacoma. I might get these! Yeah but for the price I could live with that.

    If you were the guinea pig and tried these out, you'd make a lot of people happy.

    The fact you talked with an actual seller puts me at more ease of mind haha. Probably like a 3 month lead time or something more outrageous but I agree that's a steal price wise.

    Haha I'm seriously debating it! You can get front and rear for less that just a front!

    This guy said they have them in stock and will ship next day. This seems to good to be true but the guy I talked to was named John and he said they ship from a warehouse in California, he even said if I do the transaction over the phone he'd give me 5% off.

    Depends what company you're looking at, but it's definitely cheaper than most.

    Looks like they bought 2 Allpro bumpers and completely ripped the entire design.

    Do itttttt. I suggest starting with just the front as a way of testing the waters.

    Curious to see where this goes. I would be on the cautious side and learn their return policy and how difficult it is to return. Something seems very, very fishy. Powder coat is at least $125, shipping is at least $125-$150. That doesn't leave much for the rest of it... That makes me wonder...

    Hmm. Be wary of scams. It's not as if ebay transactions are bulletproof.

    Seems like a good deal for a budget bumper, I might be apprehensive about the quality but if it gets the job done I suppose. That and I personally want to go aluminum.
