    Having read your thread, I noticed that you were making your own sliders and bumpers; and your name, "TwistedMetalfab". I'm only asking cuz you are in SA and relatively close. Do you have a custom fab shop, or work for one? That would be awesome cuz there are none down here.

    That's awesome! I wish there were cool Tacoma owners like that down here. All we have are Chevys and dodges with 8" lifts and 35" mud tires that never leave the pavement, boring and old to me. I dream about having the time/money/resources to just go out to my garage and build what I want, the way I want, when I want, haha. That's why I haven't bought a bumper yet. I definitely will keep an eye on your build so I can see your craftsmanship, and it would be awesome to see in person, mounted on a truck. My dad also drives a Tacoma, and wants a new front bumper, so he might be interested also. He hates not being able to see something in person before he buys it so you being close is a big plus.
