    Hello Taco enthusiasts!!

    I have a 97 tacoma and am in want of a rear bumper with tire carrier that fits this thing. Just welded a rear frame box kit (trail gear) to support the weight, but can't find anything on the market. Anyone have anything they're sitting on or know any sites/links?

    Thanks in advance. First picture is my taco, and second is what I'm looking for. Would love the identical one from 4xinnovations, but seems like they didn't continue the make. Heres a YouTube vid of the bumper for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fY2mhihf20&feature=youtu.be&t=752

    Heres what I found in case someone stumbles across this blog. Gonna use this as a last resort, I still prefer the swing, but if nothing else it's a good alternative. Thanks for the idea!

    Just be mindful of your bank account when modding your truck! I found this out the hard way...

    My stereo system and backup camera were largely paid for with court-ordered restitution from a drunk driver who hit me back in 2015, and my ToyWerx grille was a birthday present from my dad, so I didn't blow all of my savings on my truck!

    Five trucks, but no payments! What's your fleet so far?

    In order by oldest to newest:
    • 1969 Ford F350 wrecker
    • 1991 Toyota long bed 2WD pickup
    • 1997 T4R SR5
    • 2002 Toyota Tacoma AC 4x4
    • 2003 Taco RC 5-speed 4x4
    • 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander
    Did I cover all of them?
