    I'm planning to chrome delete, and eventually armor up my truck.

    One key part of both of those is getting a new rear bumper, but the question is, which one?

    I drive a 2009 TRD Off Road, and would prefer to get a bumper with a built in hidden hitch. I'm already aware most aren't rated for towing, so if there aren't any I should trust, retaining the factory hitch is also an option.

    Just looking for recommendations. Keep in mind I live in Canada, and some places don't ship here.

    Only if it goes around the body panels. I want to be able to revert to stock if I ever sell.

    BC near Kelowna.

    Arc-1 in Abbotsford made me a gorgeous high clearance no cut bumper. Beautiful workmanship, perfect fit, built like a battleship. Good price too. Check him out.

    Do they do custom jobs for Gen 2? Their website says they're still developing one, and only have an option for Gen 3 trucks.
