    Do it!!!!!!


    Ok here are my thoughts and even with the cap too and why I ditched mine. Weight savings. When I get to do a long distance trek like Swisha loop or out to Moab and CO there is plenty of storage in the bed. Plus if you set up storage right there will be no need for the swingout. You can carry extra fuel, spare(s), tools, gear all in the bed and cab. With the AC you can throw all your camping gear in the cab as well. I am definitely enjoying the loss of weight from ditching the cap and changing my plans to no swingout because of these reasons.

    You gotta think that weight on the swingout is cantilevered off the springs thus actually acting like more weight in the bed directly above the springs. To me I think having a HC is enough weight hung out the ass end like that especially with the shorter Tacoma springs.

    I will be making some sort of bed cage, roll bar, rack system that isn't too crazy but will incorporate some additional "hanging" storage or lashing points when I really load it down with stuff.

    Got someone wanting to buy mine and order me whatever bumper I want.

    There's also a local HC SOS for trade. Not a straight swap as some features like cutouts for rear lights but so far, there's hope! I didn't think there would be honestly.

    Yeah. SOS is cool but it's pretty much a basic HC and I don't think we both have the same amount into it. I would be hard pressed if we actually could come to an agreement.

    I ultimately want a HC w/dual swing-out from Mobtown. I need as much help looking cool as possible. Malls are brutal these days.

    Plus I figured I'd run helium in the spare and unleaded fuel in the jerry cans. Should actually add some lift in the rear. :bananadance:

    Wait he's wanting to trade a std HC with light cutouts for yours with a swingout but wants more for his than yours???? o_O

    That doesn't make sense no matter the brand. Swing out bumpers add a lot to the cost. Light cutouts and little stuff like that aren't that expensive of options.

    His has no cutouts. I don't think he understands how much I have into mine and he would likely have to add cash on top of the trade on his end. Not to mention, I would guess he would want the Rigid lights from mine too. His PC is chipped up a bit too.

    Yeah besides PC he doesn't have any options so that's the most basic of HC bumper you can get and it's not that expensive compared to one with a swingout. I'd say yours is worth in the 1600 range easy his probably in the 1000 range. Or that's what I would be willing to value it at. PC to me isn't really a worthwhile investment. I'd rather spray bomb it. Not sure of the cut lines on a PB but they may be different than an SOS or other brands that may be something to look out for. If PB cuts less then you are golden if they cut more then you don't want some huge gaps. Hope he is ready to fork over some $$$$$. @TaKoToy has probably the most expensive optioned SOS bumper you can get optioned out. Hell the SOS Std rear I delivered to Chris a month ago is worth more than that HC the guy wants to trade you for.

    o_O Sounds like an interesting story but not really sure if it's appropriate for TW.
