    Just seeing if we should try to market this bumper to the masses or not. They would work on 95.5-04 Tacomas and 96-02 4runners.

    So, Would you order one of these?

    I like it! But I would prefer to have a little more coverage in the center where the winch goes.

    It looks like the sides of the bumper stick out a little to far past the fenders, at least for a truck that is still ifs up front.

    Also, an aluminum option if possible!

    Looks good, nicely done. How heavy is it? The only issues I have are the stinger hoop (makes underhood work a pain) and the shipping to CT would be a killer

    looks good but that opening provides the radiator a lot of rock damage vulnerability.

    Love it! Wouldn't change a thing except add a couple recovery points. I really like the open front where the winch goes and the boxed sides. I like that it sticks out a little past the fenders to push the front end away from any obstacles.

    X2, if you could do it in aluminum that would be great!

    like how you'd be able to throw on nearly any winch you want

    Isn't that the point of the winch though? With a winch there its an extremely tight fit and cover 98% of the area in question.

    Aluminum would not be an option unless you want to pay 3x the price for it as it would be TIG welded together and 10x longer to weld.

    FWIW, your current air holes/voids in your stock bumpers have more gap than this does even without a winch

    Welcome to Beater-ville!
    Does the SAS come with it? :D

    I like it. I think it sticks a tad farther out on the sides than I would like. I had mine about half that much and liked it. For something more trail dedicated, the exposed winch is big plus.

    Nice work!


    Edit: Never had any trouble doing engine work on a friends truck with the TG bumper w/ stinger... :notsure:

    ^This...I think it would look fine with a winch in there. Op mount up a winch and take a picture. I think that would change the minds of some of the people on the fence. Like that it's slightly wider than the truck for the reason Pugga said.
