    This is down the street from me!! But the map shows that is in the Arapahoe County building. That can't be right. Let me know when you are going to hang there and I will come by. Maybe talk to him about a T case skid and HC rear bumper. :D

    taco bumper will be smaller up front for a cleaner look, but the sides will be close to this allowing for larger tires and plenty of approach angle

    yea i'll be helping him with the designing and production of anything tacoma and that is one thing that i do not want to see is a large, in your face bumper that has unnecessary metal...with so many different fabricators out there, there are many examples to base the bumper off of.

    Let me know if you guys need some help with designs. I can even help with the fabrication if needed :cool:

    He should also look into designing some RTT platforms or roof mounted light racks

    I also designed this basket.

    As well at this led light bar that would mount inside the topper to the bolts that hold my roof rack tracks on.

    It is also meant to hang down enough that I could store my fishing poles above it.

    for a rear bumper...what would you guys like to see?

    a high clearance bumper of a mix between ATO and All-pro?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ATO style of high clearance but with lines closer to an all-pro

    or just an all-pro style bumper without the high clearance design

    or a tube-style bumper like bad land bumpers

    [​IMG]


    designs won't be exact as other fabricators, but looking for design preferences

    goal is to get something made here local so those who would like a rear bumper won't be raped by shipping charges and have competitive prices..

    Hyrbid plate and tube would be awesome for a back bumper. It could be a wrap around like the all pro and not need to cut the bedside.

    But I also think a true high clearance bumper with cutting the bedside is essential. I like the looks of CBI the best(hence the reason I have one). Relentless is a little too complex to look good and ATO is a little too simple. IMO cutting the bed at the tail lights is a little too hight

    kinda, but more attractive looking.

    I'd almost stay to make a simple tube bumper with a top and bottom tube, and then dimple plate between the tubes. So it's a tube bumper but with the spaces filled in.

    I am planning on buying a high clearance rear bumper fairly soon, if you needed a vehicle to do mockup on I would be willing to use mine as I am planning on cutting the bedsides anyway. FYI there is a company in Colorado already that is making rear bumpers http://www.armorology.com/In The Shop.htm I was planning on giving them a call to see cost on their products. I would want a plate style rear to go with my All-Pro front bumper.
