This is a high clearance weld-together plate bumper kit for the (1980-1990) 60 Series Toyota Land Cruiser. It provides full wrap-around protection for the rear of your FJ60 while the sloped, high clearance design hugs the rear of the vehicle for unbeatable ground clearance and departure angle. Simply put, you can not get any more rear end clearance than this without cutting into the body of your Land Cruiser! This bumper is a direct replacement for the factory rear bumper but also wraps around the sides of the body for total quarter panel protection. The rear quarter panels are often the most vulnerable piece of body work on a 4×4. Keep them protected!
We realize that at the age they are now at, many 60 Series Cruisers can have frames that are rusty or otherwise damaged in some way. For this reason, we went completely overkill with the mounting system for this bumper. It includes 10 mounting points per side for a total of 20 mounting points! These mounting points use factory holes in the frame and are distributed over a massive 16″ of length of the main frame rails. While this is overkill, it ensures the impact and pulling forces are distributed evenly over the vehicle frame. This also results in wrap-around side wings that are properly supported and worthy of real offroad abuse.
The end result is a bumper that features bolt-on construction, an optional 2″ hitch receiver, and excellent protection from trail obstacles, trees and incompetent motorists. This bumper comes standard with 9/16″ D-ring shackle mounts that pull directly off of the frame for reliable recoveries in the worst of offroad situations. To further protect the vulnerable rear corners of your Land Cruiser, this bumper is available with optional tubing side hoops that will help push your Land Cruiser away from trees and rock walls.
**Please note that some of the later year 60 Series Land Cruisers have a large factory crossmember that spans the rear of the vehicle frame. This bulky crossmember reduces ground clearance and makes it impossible to fit a slim, high clearance bumper that complements the lines of the vehicle. For this reason, this crossmember must be removed to install this bumper. Earlier model year Land Cruisers did not have this factory crossmember and the bumper is thus a direct fit.
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 heim joint hinges, 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.
Forget the outrageous lead times of many bumper options that are measured in months. All of our bumper kits ship within 1-4 business days.
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.
