This is our new closed top winch bumper weld-together kit for the 3rd generation (1996-2002) Toyota 4Runner. This bumper is based on our original open-top winch bumper that is the tightest fitting and highest clearance bumper on the market. This bumper is different in that the winch sits entirely enclosed within the bumper, thus eliminating the need to trim your grill to install a winch. We have managed to do this while still keeping a very low profile bumper that only protrudes 4″ from the center of the grill. This high clearance design allows you to forget about approach angles 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 89lbs through careful design work.
Forget the outrageous lead times of many bumper options that are measured in months. Our bumper kits ship within 1-4 business days and we use 2-day shipping for all orders.
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.
