    Hi all,
    I've been making up a Christmas wish list, and my #1 request is a winch bumper. I've looked at probably most of the major ones out there, then by accident I stumbled upon FabFours. It was love at first sight. Unfortunately they don't offer any products for the Tacoma YET. I e-mailed them and asked the possibility of expanding their line to include our trucks. My question to you is: If Fab Fours made bumpers for our trucks, would you buy them?
    Example of bumper:

    They'd have to offer something pretty damn nice to make me choose them over Shrockworks or the All Pro Hybrid.

    I would consider getting one if they start to build them for our Tacoma it'll be interesting to see what happens.

    I'd be willing to bet that if they did start making them for Tacomas, It would only be for the 2nd gen trucks. I see alot of awesome accessories that aren't available for pre 2005 Tacomas.

    ^^^ Your probably right but I guess there's always custom fabrication. You could probably get pretty close to the same thing.

    Hell Yes!! That looks a lot like the road armor bumper that's planned for the Tacoma. I love the lines on this a lot more than the all pro and shrockworks. Looks a lot less "baja".

    I like that bumper -- I would put it on mine if they got rid of the bling rivet thing-a-majobers around the fogs / driving lights... :D

    I think I read on their site that the bumper for the Tundra, with brush guard pipes was 270 lbs! :eek:

    Without the bars (just the bumper) I think it said just over 200.

    They're more expensive than Allpro. $1500 for a FabFours FJ bumper compared with $800 for an AllPro for the FJ. I'd guess about the same differential for the Tacoma. It does look nice though.

    I don't think there's a size limit if you link to a picture that exists on the internet. The size limit is for uploads to the server.
