    should be the same as the 2010. I don't think it changed any since everything else for the 2010 fits on my 2011.

    The problem is I cant find the brackets for any year... I have the bull bar with the mounting brackets that it came with, but they dont fit my taco. Bought it from a guy off craigslist that said it came off his tacoma and would fit a 2011, but it doesnt appear that way. I guess worst case I could drill some holes. Unless someone knows where I can buy the mounting brackets for 2011.

    I have a Smittybilt Bull Bar and it took a little time to figure how the brackets fit my '08 Taco-even with the instructions. I don't think that the front end of the frame has changed over the years between the '05 and '11. Did you get instructions with the bar? If you need a photo of my setup let me know and I'll try to get a couple if I can. Don

    Did Bull bar come from his Tacoma and He give you all the part then you don't need to buy any bracket, Here is the link of Westin Bull bar installation and parts.

    This is the best I could do. This is the right side looking up. The two bolts on the bottom of the photo connect the bull bar to the bracket. Notice that the bolt in the middle/right of the photo that is black. That is an original bolt from the frame and is used in the installation. Good Luck, Don[​IMG]

    Here's another shot. To get the bracket in place and bolted is no easy task. However, once the one side is done then you know what you're doing and the other side is easier. Don[​IMG]

    Thanks so much, that helps a lot... I thought I had the wrong brackets but now I see I do have the right ones and how to bolt them on. Thanks again!
