    You can do a front receiver mount like mine using the CBI front receiver hitch. (check sig for details)

    You could fab up something behind the plastic valance, replacing the existing aluminum bumper mount. But it's going to be tricky.

    EDIT: OH, and Warn has some funky "Transformer" setup they offer too - not sure if you can get it for Tacoma or not.
