    Nothing but good things to say about my bumper from elite. First post kicked off to right off of angled plate, then second post clipped off by bumper still connected buy fence wire on top came toward windshield and hit hoop flipping post over window hitting top of truck last post hit was 12" post braced by 45 degree cross post, that's when physics finally played out with equal and opposite force thing...would have taken pics but I was pretty shook up adrenaline pumping and all. Helped farmer move horses to another field , skipping hospital headed for home. No doubt that factory plastic and thin metal would have helped much at all nor would half of the "aftermarket brush/bumper products" all I can say is most of the time get what you pay for me I go for function and elite has a well thought design and is put together well.

    Im glad to know the bumper has saved lives. Cant wait for mine to show up. My 1998 tacoma is paid for but I keep full coverage. I also have extra equipment protection and that covers $2000. For roof rack, bumper, stereo ect. I have never had to use it but its nice to know that if my truck gets totaled Ill get some money back for what Ive put into it. Great job on building these beefy bumpers Tim!!!

    It's alright man I wasn't trying to sound like an ass or anything, I appreciate all the support I get from people but I just want to keep things civilized and respectful to other businesses because I would want the same from them haha thanks for understanding

    Just out of curiosity... Do the airbags have any trouble deploying under the proper conditions with he bumper? I know ARB advertises that they do, but I was under the impression that it didn't matter, and that all aftermarket bumpers were safe on Tacomas.
