    JW if anyone on here has replaced the OEM front bumper and had it resprayed. Reason being is that someone I know backed into me, and I'm now looking at getting an ARB or AllPro instead of replacing it like new.

    My guess is $4-500 for a new OEM bumper and having it resprayed. He is paying for the repairs.

    If I go ARB or AllPro, am I looking at upgrading the suspension too? Stock '09 Prerunner Access Cab.
    Also can someone point me to a cheap supplier of the ARB?

    TRD Parts 4 U, (Toyota of Dallas) is where I got mine. Jacque is a very cool guy and great to work with! A new ARB with fogs will set you back about a grand, while the older style will be about $850 shipped to your door. What color is your truck? I just removed a front bumper cover with fog lights in Metallic Grey from my truck. I'd make you a good deal on it, but I don't know what shipping would be to Florida.

    Pyrite is my color unfortunately. I take it my stock fogs will not fit into the ARB?

    No they are a different size, and cost an additional $70. You can use your factory wiring though. I decided on the older style, as one was in stock in Dallas, and I was going to use KC driving beams anyway.

    Looks awesome. Any idea if I can run ARB or AP without upgrading the front suspension?

    You can do it, but I think the weight will make it sag quite a bit. You can replace with OME springs to offset the weight if you dont want to lift it.

    It was about an inch. Next time I'm at the hall I'll bust out the tape measure for you. Deal?

    If you like the ARB, shockworks has a similar style bumper but it looks a bit more aggressive.

    I regularly see another Taco around town that is stock plus an ARB front bumper (no winch installed) and it doesn't look like it sags at all.
