    Update: Bumper is now for sale here- http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/el...e-off-road-rear-plate-bumper.html#post2786025

    Finally got to doing the Rear bumper, all future ones will be cut out of 3/16's steel. with 3/8" thick frame plates and 3/4" shackle points. (Bumper in photo is Aluminum and does not have the shackle points on it)

    tube and plate wrap around will be available in the future to protect the rest of the rear rocker panel's.

    receiver hitches will be available for ad-on with this bumper.

    This thing is about as High clearance as i could possibly do and still protect the rear rocker panels, the bumper tucks right up against the rear of the truck and at the tallest point is only as tall as the license plate.

    hope you all like it! I'll have the SALE thread up once i get this painted, the first group buy will be 10 people! and will be offered at 500 Dollars! these will never be that cheap again so if you want it i suggest hopping on this first group buy! building should begin in mid-january or as soon as my cnc guy gets the plans drawn up.

    and now some pictures

    ya shipping to hawaii is 150 for the front bumpers, may be cheaper for this since its a lot smaller, i could probably ship it to you with out a pallet for much cheaper if you want me to check that out.

    in my opinion i think if you can make the bumper wrap around to the fender flare it could look nicer??? not sure hard to picture that in my head, and incorporate some kind of recovery point where ones with out hitches have something to hook to?

    it just some ideas i thought when looking at this bumper, not sure how great function wise they would be tho.

    yes full wrap around protection will be available later as an ad-on and it will protect all the way to the fender flarel. i'll weld on some recovery points today to show where they'll be.

    thanks guys
    i'll be messing with those today, if anything a led light bar will be sold with the bumper that bolts on with the license plate

    Thanks

    Damn now I gotta spend more money lol. Oh well it definitely looks awesome. About how much are these gonna run after the group buy, because I'm gonna wait till wrap around protection is available?

    they'll run about 600 after the group buy, and if you want the wrap around protection it will be offered on the group buy.

    thanks! and me too :D

    Looks great man, I'm really pushing my dad to let me get a rear bumper after my sister dinged mine up. Are there any provisions for license plate lights?

    I don't usually like plate rear bumpers, but it looks great Tim. I'd love to get on the buy, but I have to see the wrap around and receiver hitch first ;)

    Hey man, awesome bumper as others have said. When I get my truck, most likely first gen, I'll definitely be considering your bumpers. Kinda off-topic, but how has wheeling been with the fabtech lift?
