As you know, the Toyota Tacoma is a superb off-road vehicle, but the stock bumper and trim are lightweight pieces that provide little or no protection to the front end of your Tacoma when you’re off-road.
All-Pro Off Road has designed a Front Winch Bumper for 95-04 Tacomas to protect the front end of your Toyota, improve off-road capability, and allow for the mounting of up to a 9500-lb. capacity recovery winch with remote solenoid (use of an integrated solenoid winch will require grille trimming). The winch mounting surface has the common 10″ x 4.5″ bolt pattern used by Warn and other winch manufacturers. Tabs are included for mounting a winch fairlead, and there is also a convenient winch hook loop on which to place the winch hook and tension the line for storage.
This bumper is mostly built from heavy-duty .120 wall, 1.75″ and 1.5″ diameter tubing with CNC laser cut and brake formed 3/16″ plate steel for the winch structure and mounting plates. The sides wrap around the fenders and there’s a bottom hoop that serves as protection for the low hanging radiator with an integrated steel skid plate. All-Pro offers additional skid plates that attach to the bumper and protect the IFS and transmission (the factory skid plate is not compatible). Approach angles are greatly improved because the bumper tucks up and out of the way, providing much more clearance than the factory bumper.
This bumper ships unpainted so that you can finish it to your liking. It simply bolts on using the factory hardware (see instructions for 98-00 models below). We have included 2 light mounting tabs so that you can easily mount up to 6″ lights. Please note turn signal mounts are not included, but you can either re-use your stock turn signals with some simple modifications or use inversal style lights available at most parts stores. Another option is to modify the factory corner lights to accept a filament bulb (1157 style) so they will function as a marker AND a turn signal light, eliminating the factory turn signal completely (see the “how to” link below)
98-00 Frame Brackets
The “Baja Taco” options may be added to the Base Model bumper to make it even more suited to the multi-purpose intent of the Baja Taco, as well as give it a mean look!. Aggressively styled tubular Baja Taco Headlight Hoops act as brush guards to protect the Tacoma’s front corners when chasing through the heavy brush (Note: the Headlight Hoops option deletes the Side Protection Hoops from the standard bumper model). Baja Taco Filler Plates are four pieces welded into the bumper between the tubes on either side to provide protection from hazards closer to the ground.
If ordered with a Base Bumper, these options come installed (welded on). You may choose to have the Headlight Hoops sent un-installed in order to save shipping costs (they severely affect the overall dimensions and therefore the shipping cost of the bumper—you would have to weld them on yourself). Either of these items may also be ordered separately for those existing All-Pro bumper owners who would like to retrofit to the Baja Taco features. (Bumpers are shipped bare metal)
