    Hello! I've been eyeing this piece a bit: https://www.relentlessfabrication.c...ucts/2016-tacoma-stingray-lo-pro-winch-bumper

    I had a few questions as it looks like at least the 2nd gen one is only done in batch orders, is the 3rd gen the same / in stock "ish" for order?

    Also, is there any where I could snag some more high res photos or on customer truck photos? The ones on the site are a good start but I'd love to see some close ups and generally larger photos, especially of how & where it mounts. If possible!

    Also, any issues reported with head-on collisions and this folding back into the radiator? I had a super cheap "bumper grill" on an Isuzu awhile ago and basically tapped someone at a light by accident and the 2 of the 4 bolts snapped causing it to basically turn into a claw that the other car used to eat my radiator and hood...

    I've also been eyeing the SSO piece, they seem comparable and given I likely will put a winch, a light bar or two, and some bull clamps either would do the trick!

    Appreciate it, thanks!

    I don't have any more photos, unfortunately our customers don't share many photos of our parts installed. We'd love to add more to our site, we just don't have them.

    The 12-15 ones are not available all the time, however our 2016+ are available all the time. We just finished building every one we had orders for earlier this week and still have a few extra sets of parts on our shelf ready to build. We won't build the next orders for a little(4-6 weeks) while as we're switching gears to focus on a large batch of rear bumpers right now, but you can order any time. The lead time one may end up varying just due to production schedules- you may be the first order in the next batch and wait a while, or the last order and therefore wait less.

    As for mounting and strength, the Lo-Pro mounts in the same way as our full size 3rd gen Tacoma bumpers. The 6 frame end studs, 2 lower bolts into the cross member, and an additional frame reinforcement that wraps back around the body mount with a 1/2"x4" grade 8 bolt completely through each frame rail. It's not going to be folding back into radiator unless you get into a BAD accident, in which that will be the least of your worries. We do not offer 'guards' like the one you likely used to have for the main reason that going outside of the factory bumper entirely just doesnt give adequate room for proper reinforcement and leads to that 'guard' turning into a damage multiplier(as you seem to have experienced) in even minor bumps.

    No worries on the photos, although if I end up going this route I'll be sure to help alleviate the problem!

    If I'm reading this right, you have the parts available from a previous batch, but you're not gonna put them together for 4-6 weeks since you're working on other stuff? I'm looking to order a few things this weekend and just trying to plan out roughly when parts might arrive. (obviously trying to be as patient as I can, haha!)

    Correct, i over-cut/bend parts for what we need in a batch so theres some left over(and if we have time while building the existing orders then we'll pre-build the extras for stock) for another few lo-pro's, but at the moment now I have a solid month of other bumpers assembled and in build right now so the lo-pro parts are going to sit until the others are done.

    the link in the OPs post goes to a 404. The Stingray is the best looking lo pro front bumper I've seen. Any chance you guys are still making it?

    We have 3 sets of parts we're building soon and that'll probably be the last of them. Shoot us an email though our website stating you'd like to claim one of them and we'll get the order locked for you. It has the cutout for a Baja Designs S8 20" in it.
