    Im looking to get a trail gear bumper for my 1st gen, but i cant decide which one! Its stock ride height so i dont know if that big hoop would look stupid. It looks good with a lift but i havent seen one not lifted with it. Does anyone have pics of the low profile and the other one? Thanks

    I cant find any pictures of the hoop bumper. I have a 95 regular cab taco. Its stock as a rock. No bumpers no wheels and tires.(theyre coming real soon). Its a 4 cyl with no power whatsoever. I need something to make it stand out. I can not stand having a 4 cyl. I really want a v6 taco or a diesel, but i cant afford either one. I need to make something out of this one. Sorry for venting lol Thanks for the help

    The stinger is a little extreme on the non low profile one imo.

    Trail Gear Low Pro with optional lightbar. You have to order the lightbar separately and weld it on yourself (or have someone else weld it)

    Here is the Low Pro before I added the lightbar.

    Figured this was common knowledge about painting bare metal......

    Clean thoroughly with acetone or other degreaser. Use Primer. I did two coats of Rustoleum primer, followed by 3 coats of Rustoleum Satin Black. Holding up just fine.

    i just got mine a while ago and it held up quite nicely to damage.. but i gotta some how bend it back out or replace it but if you look real closely the right corner is bent in and slightly up

    then its time to repaint :) plus ive had the light bar but just havent gotten around to putting it on so now seems like a good time to figure it out

    I think that pretty much settles it for me getting a trail gear front bumper lol. I have the rear bumper and it seems pretty stout too :thumbsup:
