    well i think its time to get a new bumper. my stock bumper feels like it could fall off any second! Im lookin for a good tube bumper. I wouldnt mind a plate bumper, but it seems a tube would be lighter. any suggestions?

    Front or rear bumper? 4xinnovations makes some pretty stout tube bumpers.

    I like allpros Baja bumper for tubes.

    Relentless or elite for plate, although arb has been growing on me lately.

    They're all pretty pricey really. Cbi's is also really nice. It's a shame there was an earlier model cbi bumper for sale around me (there isn't much Toyota aftermarket stuff floating around up here) for only 250. It looked ugly as hell though so I skipped out.

    Can anyone attest to trail gears front receivers? They don't look too beefy to me, but having a receiver up front would be awesome.
