    See, I really like that ARB bumper. The safari one is the only one that ARB still carries for our first Gen Tundra's.

    On a side note, the picnic bench holding up the truck under a jack stand is making me cringe in hopes it doesn't snap in half. lol

    Which model year range Tacoma does that ARB bumper fit? I might have to see if I can find one and have custom mounts done as well. I don't weld as my eyes are hyper sensitive to light (even with a welding helmet on), so I'll have to have someone fabricate for me. Looks clean. I like your rear bumper as well.

    I did reach the folks at Reunel about a rear bumper for my 2005 Tundra and they quoted me at $1,650. So... looks like I'll be getting an aftermarket stock bumper for about $250 +/-.

    I'm interested in a bumper for Crackie down the road. Always really liked the Tacoma bumper on these trucks that's posted above. I'd be willing to pay someone to make an additional set of mounting brackets, and ship them to me unless it involves cutting the bumper. Haven't read that much into it yet. Adapter brackets available would be great for all members.
