    I have a 2010 Tacoma (DC,SB) with the factory fog lights. I'm thinking of getting an ARB bumper/bull bar, so what becomes of my fog lights that are mounted in the stock bumper? Can I run them on the ARB, or do they just get discarded with the stock bumper as part of the upgrade? Thanks for your input!

    Are there cutouts on the bumper for the fog kit? Or are there holes in it.

    They do have cutouts/holes to match the triangular shape of the light kit. I have not unwrapped the bumper yet but was told that it should slide in from the front and bolt in from the back. The OEM lights unplug and the new ones plug right up.

    Here are a few pics of the bumper. If all goes well we will have a WAT (wrench-a-thon) at a club members house this Sunday to install.

    I think that would be easy to do. You would need to order the plastic housing, fog lamp and maybe new turn signals. The signal lights may not be the same size that yours has. Draw a template of the housing, tape on, line up and cut. As far as not being able to see down into the winch area, you are right, the openings are not very big. There was another thread started about which bumper to get a while back, and I was down to 3, shrokworks, allpro and arb. All 3 look great in my opinion. I do like that both shrokworks and allpro have options as far as configurations and the arb doesn't. As far as looks go I think that the allpro looks the best the the shrokworks and arb last. The allpro being the least sturdy then then the arb and shrokworks the heavy duty. Just my opinion. I didn't want the bars that protect the headlights, just the bull/pre-runner bar with fog/driving lights option. Now that arb offered the light option and a club discount, for being a member of the "TOYOTA TRAIL RIDERS", at TRDparts4u made the choice easier for me. Can't wait till tomorrow to put this thing on!!:)

    Sorry to have hijacked your thread but to answer your question, your old lights will not fit in the new bumper. Don't discard with the bumper, as a matter of fact, try too sell both. The lights sell for a little over $200 each at a dealership. Try here and craigs list. The lights should sell easy not sure about the bumper.

    Just curious, about how heavy is one of these bumpers alone (without a winch)? Did you guys notice any sagging in the front after installation?
