    Hey everyone, here it is! The Relentless fab 1996-2004 Tacoma off-road rear plate bumper!

    Key features:
    - Made from 3/16”, ¼”, and ¾” thick steel, CNC cut and bent, and MIG welded for unbeatable quality and rugged good looks with the strength to back them up.
    - Greatly improved clearance over low hanging factory bumper and hitch.
    - Mounts through 1/4" steel mounting brackets, and uses 3 mounting points per side of frame. Compare this to our competitors using only 1-2 bolts per frame rail being held in shear!
    - Standard integrated 3/4" steel recovery points are through welded directly to the mounting plates for strength to handle all recovery situations! No surface welded 'recovery' points here!
    - Standard hi-lift jack lifting notches on every bumper
    - Standard cutouts for factory license plate lights to be reused
    - Each bumper is hand made to order to your exact specifications.
    - Bumper ships in bare metal, or can be primered at request.
    - Approximately 75lbs base bumper weight.
    - Modified mounting for trucks with body lift is available. If a body lift is installed, please specify how much body lift is on your truck when ordering otherwise a bumper for a standard truck will be sent (0" body lift).


    Pricing:
    Base rear bumper with recovery points starts at $600 + shipping.

    Options:
    - Swing away tire carrier: Starts at +$350
    - Add receiver hitch: +$100
    - Recessed mounts for back up lights: +$40
    - Possible hidden winch mount. (still designing)
    - Add 1.75" tube wrap arounds to protect rear quarter panels (still designing)
    - Modded mounting plates to fit body lifted trucks


    Installation:
    No vehicle modification is necessary to install. Simply remove the factory rear bumper and bolt the beefier Relentless rear plate bumper up with basic hand tools!
    **Factory tow hitch will NOT work with this bumper. I can integrate a hitch into the bumper, but since I cannot get it officially tested like the factory hitch, it comes unrated for capacity and full responsibility and liability is on you if you decide to tow with it. I'm sure you can understand where i am coming from, theres just a lot of liability there that I can't claim for on-road use. These are off-road bumpers.

    Shipping info:
    Rear bumpers can ship via UPS or Fastenal. All bumpers ship in bare metal and come complete with necessary hardware to mount your license plate, and additional grade-8 mounting bolts.
    Base rear bumper ships to most places for approx. $50-$130 via UPS ground. *Options such as tire carrier requires shipping via fastenal freight truck due to extra weight/dimensions.

    Fastenal freight shipping rates:
    Pacific time zone: $75
    Mountain time zone: $100
    Central time zone: $125
    East coast, hawaii: $150

    Please allow time for your bumper to be expertly crafted to your specs. I build as quick as possible, but quality like this takes some time. Great looks, unbeatable quality and solid design is found in every Relentless product. Complete customer satisfaction is my goal!

    Sample pictures:

    Nice!

    Make it wrap around the bed sides, add dual swing-outs (tire on one, jerry cans and hi-lift on other), and make a spot for a 8k lb winch, and I'll buy one!

    i like that bumper! the only thing is is that i would want one with a class 3 hitch as well, or would this just fit around the hitch i already have?

    Weather broke just long enough this after noon to take a few new pics. Uploading them now so you guys can see it clearer.

    And thanks for all the positive responses!
    Tire carrier and winch mount WILL be available! :D

    Updated the OP with pics in better weather. :)

    Front plate bumper is in development for those who would be interested in a complete package; front and rear, front and sliders, rear and slider, front rear and sliders, etc. I will have package discounts for orders of more than 1 armor product in a single order, plus you can take advantage of cheaper shipping as each additional armor piece adds only $20/ea to the Fastenal shipping rates listed above. :)

    Very nice work, any plans for a plate wrap around instead of tube?

    It could be a possibility. I'd have to tweak the dimensions a little to make the sides stick out farther by about an inch to allow room for the plate wraps.

    Definitely hope this is an option!

    I'm interested to see what you come up with for a front bumper. Hopefully I'll be buying a pair from you soon.

    Also, good to see that you're offering options for bodylifted trucks. I know they're frowned upon, but my truck had one when I bought it, so I'm not going to bother removing it.


    Keep at it, and let me know when you're ready to start selling.

    Sounds good. Same here, when we got the GF's truck(pictured) it had a 3" body lift installed from the previous owner. Not my favorite thing to have installed but I can live with it I suppose.
    As for when I'm ready for orders, I'll take orders for the standard bumper and options listed now but there is a decent lead time with all my other orders piled up right now.
