    4x Innovations now has Tacoma Rear Hitch bumpers for 95.5-04 Tacomas that are rated as a class 3 hitch! Our engineering team spent 4 months designing, analyzing, and performing destructive testing on this awesome new design! This new rear bumper features the same great 1/2" high grade steel mounting plates that have built in recovery shackle mounting points as all of our other bumpers. We then added a 2" receiver tube and all of the required supports to create the strongest hitch available for your Tacoma. Also new is the full width top tube allowing the entire length of the bumper to act as a step for getting to things in the bed with out dropping the tailgate.

    The integrated 2" receiver hitch has been designed and tested to well exceed the SAE standards for a class 3 receiver hitch. To prove the ultimate strength of this beautiful piece of work additional testing was performed. After taking this bumper to 26500 lbs of pull force with a simultaneously applied 10000 lb tongue load there was less than 1 degree of deflection!

    Order your new hitch and bumper all in one great item today for just $473 - less TW 5% discount -> $450 See the 4x Innovations website here for more information. Use coupon code Tacomaworld5 for 5% off

    Yeah I can't believe I forgot to add them here back in June when they were released!

    95.5-04, yes, I added that above, thanks for the reminder. I'm actively looking for a 05-10 as I can't find someone to bring one here. I don't know though, that's a ton of money to lay out just for R&D.

    The only thing holding me back is not having one in my back pocket. See above post for explanation.

    :thumbsup: I've gotten a ton of compliments on it Adam! I'm a little upset at myself that it took me this long to get pics on the trail though haha.
    Now alls I need is another 4xInnovations sticker. Adam think you could PM me the logo you use for the stickers so I can get it cut/printed?

    Does the stock spare fit with this bumper? I really like it.

    And the pic above only shows one shackle?

    Any idea how I could attach a license plate using this bumper? I really don't want to attach it to the tailgate like pittim did. I am getting closer to getting one, just need to wrap up a few things.

    Be nice to have the bumper to match the sliders.

    I will have a license plate mount for the bumper by Monday morning. The mount will be sort of easily removable so when you are on the trail you can keep your plate from turning into a rock anchor and getting destroyed. I'm not going to make it TOO easy to remove so it does not become a easy target of theft.
