    For those that may not know this. If you put a body lift on your 96-00 Tacoma and want to get rid of the space between the bumper and the tailgate. Just take your bumper brackets switch sides and flip them. Once you do this only 2 bolts will line up unless you drill new ones so I would not tow from the bumper but as long as you have a reciever hitch your good to go with doing this and your space is gone. worked for me.. If there is any interest I will try to get some pics of what I did. Once I figure out how to get my pictures posted from photobucket.. Lata , G
