    Hey eveyone I just wanted to get some opinions for a replacement rear bumper. I got backed into at a parking lot and will be getting a new bumper soon. I'm not sure if I should go with the factory TRD Sport bumper again or go with the Road Armor one. I will just get the insurance money and pay the rest out of pocket for the Road Armor.

    I have a 2009 4x2 Tacoma Prerunner TRD Sport V6. Can someone posts some pics of their trucks with the Road Armor bumper? I like the look of the All-Pro but it doesn't fit for the Toyota factory hitch.

    If someone backed into me at a parking lot and trashed my rear bumper I would go with a super heavy duty bumper that would damage their car and protect my bumper.
    I am all for is when you have to replace something, then replace it with something better, what I can't understand is why anybody would cut off a perfectly good exhaust and replace with a high perfomance exhaust, I say wait till the stock exhaust wears out then replace it with a high perfomance one.

    I've never been a huge fan of the looks of the Road Armor bumper. If it were me I'd go with the All Pro and their high clearance hitch. It would still be cheaper than just the Road Armor bumper.

    Yeah I do like the look of the All-Pro but I really don't want to remove a perfectly good hitch and purchase another one.

    Too much.

    I'd look at CBI, Relentless, ATO, Perkins Performance for a stock replacement bumper.

    Wow, I voted for Road Armor until I saw the cost...I like the looks and the ability to keep the factory hitch. But for that price I don't think many people will bite.

    Ok so I ditched the road armor bumper idea and ended up going with an All Pro Offroad bumper. I ordered it in the raw form with the hidden hitch. I'm planning on having it painted by my bedliner guy with the Xtreme spray. My front skid plate was painted with the Xtreme and it is holding up quite well.

    I wish I had got in on the earlier group buy though because it costed me $175.00 more. :( I will post some pics after I get it finished. Thanks for all the help guys!
