    Seems everyday I need to find something else to change or upgrade on my truck. Happened to look at the rear bumper today (chrome), and there is a signifcant amount of rust on it and the chrome is starting to peel...Just wondering where I should go with this. I'm not much into offroading so I dont need a heavy duty offroad bumper. However, something different would be nice. Any body have any ideas. I came across this one ---->http://www.allprooffroad.com/9504tacomatrailarmor/9504rearbumpers

    Doesnt seem to bad for $379, but i thought the $99 price tag for the tow hitch brackets was a little steep.

    Id really like one that already has the tow hitch built in it, but just trying to get some ideas. Pictures would be helpful as well. Thank ya :D

    I ordered that bumper (and hitch brackets) a few weeks ago...I can't wait until its here

    Also, use the search button, any topic you can think of has been covered already. Use vague search criteria for more results.

    Let me know how you like it. Any idea if the spare tire fits with that one?

    I did use the search option, theres just so much info on different things I figured Id go this route.

    Yup it's got a class 3 hitch built in. They're $450+ship. Call for a shipping quote though, since he's in WI and it'll be cheaper than the general price.

    Only thing that can be seen as a negative is the spare doesnt fit.

    The spare stays in with the all pro, they say access is limited (you may have trouble with the crank rod) but its possible. And really, how often do you need to get at the spare?
