    I've been looking into Tacoma front winch options for awhile and came across this as I was checking out the SEMA page. Here's what else I was able to find online.

    SEMA page link with picture and description-

    •Up to a 12,000lb winch
    •1" solid D-Rings
    •3/16" bumper face
    •Flip-Up License Plate mount
    •Swap-able LED or incandescent fog lamps
    •Enclosed LED bar mount
    •Optional brush bars


    What do you guys think?

    I wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole. Been there, done that with Smittybilt products when I was big into Jeeps.

    They offer a good-looking product at lower price, but use cheap steel that bends and rusts easily. Also, in my experience their stuff is poorly fabricated with weak welds and the bolt-on stuff rarely lines up the way it's supposed to.

    Might as well spend the money on a quality bumper, because you'll eventually be looking for a replacement if you buy this one.

    I have SB bumpers front & rear on my Jeep, both with d-ring mounts, rear with a receiver hitch. They fit fine, look good to me. I have no issues with mine. Exactly what I wanted, at a good price.

    People seem to like SB or hate them. I like mine.

    I don't know about

    The all new Smittybilt Toyota Tacoma M1 Front Bumper is the ultimate choice for protection

    but mine work for what I need them for.

    If the ones for the Tacoma looks anything like the ones they make for the Tundra, I will pass.

    Sorry I missed the OP's pic but I hope it doesn't look bulky mounted like the Tundra's version.
