    In an effort to always improve strength and integrity we've gone back to the drawing board with one thing in mind "we can do better". We've made significant changes to our 2005-2011 Tacoma bumpers and 2012-2014 Tacoma bumpers with out losing the over all look and function of the bumpers. We Still kept them high and tight and as light as possible.

    Bumper is fully welded with structural support running the width of the bumper and the height. A fully welded flat top bumpers weighs in at roughly 107 lbs. The new frame brackets capture the bumper to the frame with a sandwich bracket that ensures a secure fit.

    2005-2011 bumper

    We know a lot of you have bumpers on order with us and you've been waiting a long time. We just wanted to let you know that you will be getting yours first and foremost. The 2005-2011 bumpers are already shipping out. The 2012-2014 should start shipping out next week, we appreciate your continued patients and support we believe the new bumper will be worth the wait!

    Are these lighter than the "older" ones?

    They are about the same, maybe a couple pounds heavier. The side plates are much thicker but also have bigger voids in them, the side supports are extra as well but they have big voids too.

    The new ones are 107lbs BM no hoop. If I can find an older version I will weigh it to compare.

    I was asking because your website shows 120lbs on all 3 (no hoop, single hoop and 3 hoop) 12+ bumpers. Maybe the 120 is the 3 hoop?

    IIRC my single hoop 05-11 model was listed at 105#. The new design looks great :thumbsup:

    Honestly I believe that was the 3hoop. We over estimated it too, because we'd hate for someone to actually weigh it and call us liars. So I believe we just used the 120 for all three. We actually do have a couple of the old style here so we can weigh those for comparison. I should be able to do that soon.

    The bumpers look really nice. Do you have any photos of the 2012+ with three hoops? If not can you post some when you have them. Also a side shot of where the bumper "wings" line up the to the fender flares.

    1) How do you order the bajahoops options? I only see the single hoop and 3 hoop choices on your website.

    2) What are your lead times currently?
