    I hit something today and totally messed my bumper up. I have a white taco and would prefer to have it painted when I buy it so that I don't have to take it to a shop after I get it. Does anyone know of a good place to buy a front bumper cover that's somewhat cheap but good quality?

    I would say keep an eye on the 2nd Gen build thread forum and look for people who have the same color Taco who recently upgraded their front bumpers to ARB or similar off road bumpers. Chances are they still have their factory bumper covers lying around in their garage and would be more than happy to part with it for a little extra $$$.

    Keep in mind that shipping a bumper is no cheap task, so if you can find one that is local definitely do so. I went through all of this ... bought a bumper cover from a fellow TW'er in NY state and had to have it shipped to WA state. UPS wanted $300 to ship it :eek: because of it's size, but I found a way to ship it on a Greyhound bus for $80.

    There's your answer, RZRob could hook you up.

    You could also hit up the white Tacomas that are buying bumpers from the All-Pro bumper group buy.

    Good luck.
