    Got the front bumper I've been wanting for a while now, thanks to the IRS. Addicted Offroad with stinger. Three weeks, can't wait till it gets here! :supergrin:

    The so-called "custom" places around here are just a bunch of drunk rednecks.... Not that that's always bad, but in this case, it is. Can't find a rear bumper I really like, which annoys me.

    there arent really a lot of options out there,

    its either tube, or its sheet metal, or a hybrid of the two,

    i like them both, and mine are a combination of the two,

    I like hybrid, but will probably go with tube. It's just more readily availible, and I don't wan to pay for custom :crying:

    Mine is 1/4" plate all the way round, with a tube hoop in front of my winch with light tabs on it.

    NeverMore-what year is your 4Runner? Are you keeping the spare on a rear swing-away?

    It's a '95, no swing away. Only ever seen one gen 2 Runner with one, wish I had it! Right now the spare is in the cargo area, gonna move it to the roof when I figure out how to secure it.
