The main section of this bumper is CNC-bent out of a single piece of 3/16″ P&O Steel. This greatly reduces the amount of welding and grinding required by you and makes for a cleaner finished product. If you are paying to have the bumper assembled by a welding shop, this significantly lowers the cost.
We finished this bumper off with an integrated 25″ single row LED light bar mount (custom light cut outs available by request, such as a light bar version), an integrated winch mount to accept all standard 8-12k lb winches with removable solenoids, and heavy duty 9/16″ recovery points that are placed directly in line with the Toyota Tacoma’s frame to eliminate any leveraging effects. These recovery points are formed by laser cut steel plates that pass through the bumper shell and tie directly into the Toyota Tacoma frame as part of the bumper’s main mounting brackets. The recovery points then get welded to the in and outside of the bumper shell. These factors all combine to form recovery points that minimize stress on your Tacoma’s frame and provide reliable recoveries of heavily loaded vehicles in the worst of offroad situations. What could make this bumper even better? The low profile design has resulted in very reasonable weights of 68lbs for the steel bumper and 33lbs for the aluminum version. Considering that this bumper replaces your factory bumper and associated components, the resulting weight increase to your Tacoma is almost zero. This reduces added stress on your vehicle, maintains precious payload capacity, and allows you to keep your factory suspension if desired.
