    Take a detailed look at this Tacoma's bumper, Do you see anything wrong?

    It is an ARB bumper... ok.
    It does have several lights on top... ok
    It is black... ok
    It has a winch installed... ok

    Then, WHY it does have recessed fog lights?

    The only model available (web site and promotionals) does not come with this option, only the FJ does.

    Could be a FJ ARB bumper adapted for a Tacoma?

    Anyone knows of this possibility?

    Thanks,
    Regards.

    I really like this setup, basket with IPF lights and the recessed fog lights in bumper.

    You are totally right Janster... I have to wait until ARB bring this bumper as standard Tacoma Model.

    "The Tacoma also features a custom bumper with a 9,500-pound-capacity electric winch, a plethora of off-road lights, communications/navigation gear, hand tools and other accessories that will enable the archaeologists to drive through the jungle environment safely and efficiently--and back again to their Nashville homebase"

    actually its not all that custom.. its a aulstralian toyota prado arb bumper they modified to fit that tacoma (they are very similar in shape size etc... just needed edges trimmed)
