    is it worth it to put the all pro bumper and winch on the front of a pre-runner taco? my rationale is that with it only being two wheel drive, i'll be able to pull myself out of the situations where i get stuck and cant get out with the locker engaged. what does every body think?

    Yeah you could pull your sellf out with the winch, but think about the added protection you would get with the bumper in case of a car wreck (check my out my gallery). Not to mention how cool your truck would look.

    Which All Pro bumper? There is the plate one and the hybrid.

    I know I will be getting a plate bumper for my truck eventually. The added protection/clearance from one and the ability to have a winch and recovery points up front is to good to pass up.
