    Due to my evolving needs the CBI rear bumper has been sold. Applying the lessons learned in the field during my travels during the last 7 years of owning this truck, I will be working with Demello Offroad here in SoCal to develop a totally new 2nd Gen Tacoma rear bumper specifically designed for long range trips and extended remote camping.

    Here is my current setup, full details on my build and tech/trip reports can be found on my site.
