    Thanks for the info, going to see about ordering a set. Your truck looks great. Is that the ARB bumper specifically for 12's and up, or did you just make it work for your truck? I noticed you kept the top section of the OEM bumper skin.

    ARB makes them for all year Tacomas. But this one was just released for the 12/13. The bumper dose require that you cut the top of of your stock bumper. It is used like a trim pice.

    I have been seeing lots of questions about the Tacoma 12/13 ARB Bumper that was release a few months back. You DO have to cut the stock bumper cover as a trim pice. The down side to this is that you wont be able to save or resell it. But I think it makes for a much cleaner install.

    This shot I was standing on the bumper. I shows how far the bumper sticks out from the front.

    This is the one of the spots where it mounts to the frame. I think I will add the second bolt mod so that it is tied to the frame a bit better.

    The Winch is going to be a pain in the ass to switch back and forth to free spooling with the small access hole in the top!

    Maybe.. My friend is bringing his Avalon over between 9 and 10 so we can replace one of his LCA's. Not sure how long it is going to take.

    I'm also free Tomorrow after 415, but light might not bee that great on our side by then. Have to work Saturday afternoon, Sunday seems clear. And next week I just have class on Tue/Thur 2:00-4:15.

    It's still in my todo list and has been pre-approved by my wife. But we are going to wait till I get back on the mainland.
