    I had the gentlemen at IPOR install my Demello Three Hoop (purchased from TRDPARTS4U) bumper w / Warn M8000 winch (Master-Pull Superline), a full OME suspension with the Dakar Leaf Springs, and Total Chaos UCA's. The truck is a 2009 DC TRD Offroad and I am running the Slee sliders.

    Love the bumper and have nothing but positive things to say about Demello, picked up the truck last night from IPOR and as always...impressed by their work.

    Now I just have to finish my dual battery installation this weekend.

    Next up for the truck is a an ARB front air locker, re-gear, and a set of ASFIR skid plates...and just perhaps a CBI rear bumper.

    They certainly are - both Slee and TRDPARTS4U are selling them. It looks to be roughly $1,400 for the full set - front, transmission, transfer, and exhaust.

    :eek: That is a lot. I think Budbuilts are cheaper. Of course they are steel but he can make them out of aluminum if you want. The steel is more durable and weighs more but with the price of those asfir skids, it might not be worth the weight savings going with aluminum. Just throwing out another option for you :cool:

    Thanks I really loved that truck...I was just running out of room with two big dogs, a wife, and friends...everything had to go on top of the truck and that was a major pain.

    I love the Tacoma - throwing stuff in the back is just fantastic.

    Cheers.
