    I really liked the old All Pro. Looking for suggestions and opinions on rear tube bumpers. Pictures would be great and are always welcome. Thank you in advance for your time.

    I have quite a few friends from Rocky Point, Klamath, Bonanza, and Paisley. I admire the work and never realized you were so close. Kudos on the website; looks great. Looking forward to seeing how the high clearance turns out.

    Looks awesome! Sadly, my truck is not hardcore enough to wear that monster, but I have full confidence that you could build the tube bumper I'm looking for. I bookmarked the website, and I will be in contact. Thanks for your time.

    PS. If you need another "guinea pig" for a new front or rear, just drop me a line.

    Got ya! I've got my 07 so I can prototype anything I need off it (except that cut-side rear) pretty much. If you're interested in front, but want to stick with the tube theme, I will be offering a hybrid bumper pretty soon(already ordered by a member). I would like to do some full tube front and rear bumpers as well. :cool:

    Good to know. I have pretty basic needs for my bumpers. I think a tube bumper with a sheet metal backing to "fill the body gaps" for the front and back is what I am looking for. As I mentioned, I liked the old All Pro Tube, but think I would like something that followed the contours of the body better. As a hobbyist mechanical design and tattoo artist, aesthetics drive me crazy. Continuity through out the design is key, and your plate bumpers (especially the HC) achieve that. I have a few interested in my stock bumper, might be able to get this rolling sooner than later.

    Got ya. I agree, on the 05+ Tacoma's the open tube bumpers just dont look finished and like they belong on the truck. Adding some plate in key places would definitely help the aesthetics. I really believe in trying to follow body lines and contours to make my products look like they're made for the vehicle, not just something someone put together and could be mounted on any truck.
    Keep me posted if you end up wanting some bumpers from me. I've got quite a bit of work lined up so it would still take a bit for me to get to design a bumper if you wanted it right now.

    I tend to agree with you about the unfinished look of tube bumpers. I also learned that AllPro and GlassWerks offer caps for the body corners. I will say this, I've load tested my BajaBumpers. I've carried my CRF via a MotoJack and even an old Honda Magna hanging off it. These are strong, but take getting used to.

    Those are all great looking bumpers, but I'm looking for tubing to wrap towards the back of the flares, and a solid sheet metal backing or a roll pan if you will to fill-in the corner pieces and blend to the bottom of the tail gate. I think Relentless Fab is willing to work with customers and his design style looks as if it will compliment the look I'm trying to achieve.

    Because Relentless is in your backyard, and has a 'can do it' attitude, it's a no-brainer. Just remember with the side pieces that you dont want them to be hanging out there to catch on stuff and sometimes simplicity looks best.
