    Love my 97', rarely see any others that are purple. Have to admit it, wasn't a fan at first but the colors really grown on me with the black bummer and trim on it.

    Great Looking bumper!!! You fabbed it, right?

    Like the idea of bypassing the crush zone for your bumper mounts by taking it back to the Bump stops. Is it bolted on back there too or just the four bolts that use to hold on tow points?

    Thanks for the compliments, guys! When I get time, I'll start a build thread and will be able to show more detail on the front bumper. One neat feature is that the front winch plate is removable. I'm going to make a rear bumper that will accept the plate in the rear, so I will be able to winch in either direction. Since I do expo type trips by myself from time to time, it might be handy!

    Interesting. I have the same type of switch in mine, but it's in the slot to the left of yours where your Toyota Security light is. I also have no idea what it does. Flipping it on or off seems to have no result.

    I'll follow the wires one day and see where they go.

    I use that spot for my off-road lights switch, but I never had anything in that spot stock.
