    I'm looking for either a used brushguard or bumper with a winch mount for an, 05 DC. I've been looking for a bit and all I've found is the ARB bumper and the Warn Trans4mer, is there anything else out there? Or does anyone have one they want to sell. I'm located in Martinez CA (SF Bay Area) and willing to drive a few hours to pick up. I've got about $500 to spend.

    Thanks in advance,
    DJ

    Several companies have winch bumpers for the 2nd gens, though some are quite spendy.
    The other companies that come to mind are Allpro off road, Shrockworks, Demello off road, or even custom built by some local fab companies.

    Yeah, I've checked all of those company's out but they are all out of my budget. I'm looking to spend around $500 or so.

    See if a local fab shop could make something work with your stock bumper.
    I want to say there was a write up on another tacoma board on how to do this.

    Do you remeber what board? I found one for a front receiver but I'd like somthing a bit more permanent than a front reciever and a winch cradle, just seems like it wouldn't work for too long with of angle pulls.

    I did a search as well and all I could find was where people built front receiver mounts.

    I saw on another board that there was a company called Alchemy Metalwerks that made a hidden mount for a 2nd gen Tacoma but it looks like they went out of business as their website link didn't bring up anything.
    Here is a pic of what it looked like. If I remember they were selling them for like $350.

    I was originally going to do one like this for my truck but ended up wanting more clearance so did my whole bumper instead.
