2nd Gen 4Runner High Clearance Rear Plate Bumper Kit

From: USD$667.00

This is a high clearance DIY weld-together bumper kit for the 2nd generation (1990-1995) Toyota 4Runner. It features a bolt-on design, recessed 2" receiver hitch, and one of the best departure angles on the market. The sloping rear profile and recessed hitch receiver further increase clearance and provide a smooth surface to slide across obstacles and ditch crossings. Simply put, this bumper allows you to forget about departure angle and substantially improves the offroad capability of your 4Runner! It offers excellent protection from rocks, trees and animal strikes and has been kept to a weight of 98lbs through careful design work.

This bumper has been designed to provide the absolute maximum departure angle and ground clearance without cutting into the body of your 4Runner. The rear profile of the bumper slopes inwards towards the vehicle and hugs the rear of the frame as tight as possible. This sloped profile combined with the recessed hitch receiver result in a rear end that easily slides over trail obstacles rather than hanging up on them and impeding your forward progress up the trail! Simply put, this bumper allows you to forget about departure angles and substantially improves the offroad capability of your 4Runner!

This bumper features heavy duty 3/16″ steel or 1/4″ aluminum construction, heavy duty recovery points, and an optional 2″ hitch receiver that is recessed into the bumper shell for maximum clearance and a clean appearance (many people don’t even notice its there!). This bumper gives excellent protection from trail obstacles, trees and inattentive motorists. The 9/16″ thick D-ring shackle mounts tie directly into the vehicle frame for confident recoveries and the optional surface mount LED pod lights come with slotted mounting tabs to mount the lights on top of the bumper or swing outs, keeping them out of harms way. To protect the vulnerable rear corners of your 4Runner, this bumper is also available with optional tubing side hoops that will help push your 4Runner away from trees and rock walls.

Unlike many aftermarket bumpers that are more or less empty shells with minimal reinforcement, this bumper contains extensive internal ribbing and mounts to the bottom, and sides of the vehicle frame for unmatched strength and stiffness. The bumper side wings are fully plated in on the bottom for a smooth sliding surface and link directly into the vehicle frame with 3/16″ plate and large reinforcing gussets. These bumper side wings can take serious offroad hits without flexing into the vehicle body. With this bumper, you’ll be able to tackle challenging trails with a new level of confidence knowing that the rear end of your 4Runner is now nearly invincible!

The ultra low-profile design of this bumper keeps the weight extremely reasonable at 98lbs in steel and 49lbs in aluminum while maintaining excellent strength. This is especially noteworthy when you consider the fact that the factory hitch receiver, frame crossmember and rear bumper all get removed before installing the Coastal Offroad bumper. This means that even with our steel bumper version, the total weight increase to your vehicle is negligible at best. This minimizes added stress on your vehicle, maintains precious payload capacity, and allows you to keep your factory suspension if desired.

The swing out tire carrier comes in either a single or dual sided configuration and is built to accept a tire up to 37″ in diameter. Both carriers include mounting brackets for a hilift jack and other recovery items. The dual swing out includes the hilift mount as well as a lockable jerry can holder designed to fit two 20L NATO style jerry cans. These carriers feature heavy duty chromoly double heim joint hinges, massive 3/8″ steel mounting brackets, 2000lb toggle latches, T-handle spring pins, and a replaceable UHMW catch pad that provides secure, rattle free operation. The heim joints in conjunction with the toggle latch provide tons of adjustability, allowing for easy assembly and guaranteed alignment of the carrier latch. The single swing out add-on weighs 34lbs and the dual swing out add-on with gas can holder weighs 77lbs.

•DIY Weld-together kit – This bumper arrives as precision CNC-laser cut pieces that you then weld together (detailed assembly instructions included)

• Slim profile is engineered to provide maximum ground clearance and complement the factory body lines

• Heavy duty 3/16″ plate steel construction for maximum offroad strength and durability

• Optional 1/4″ 5052 aluminum construction for a lightweight yet very durable overlanding setup (49lb weight savings)

• Optional recessed 2″ hitch receiver for a clean look and further clearance gains (While the hitch is very well reinforced, we cannot rate it for on-road towing due to the DIY welding nature of this kit)

• Mounts directly to frame using 8 factory mounting points for unbeatable strength and no drilling required.

• Reinforced 9/16″ thick clevis mounts allow the use of 3/4″ D-Rings and pull directly off of the frame for confident recoveries of heavily loaded vehicles

• All kits ship as clean, bare metal that is ready to weld out of the box – the Nitrogen laser cutting technology means no cutting edge oxidation and thus easier and stronger welds

Bumper assembly

As for welding, with everything designed using CAD software and then CNC laser-cut to size, the pieces fit together perfectly and this makes for a very simple assembly process. All kits come with detailed instructions with plenty of clearly labelled diagrams that are made using cutting-edge CAD software. This bumper kit is well within the ability of a novice welder and many customers have purchased it as their very first welding project with great results! This is made possible by the clean parts fit-ups and thick material. These are two factors that make welding significantly easier. Welding is one of those skills that is easier to learn than you may think and once you can do it, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. Alternatively, many individuals buy the kits and then have a local welder assemble it for them. Even in this case, it typically ends up being less expensive than buying a pre-fabricated bumper – especially after considering the lower shipping costs of our kits vs. fully assembled bumpers.
