Curious if anyone on the dealer market provides one of these weld together front or rear bumper kits? I had a tacoma a few months back and there seemed to be plenty of offroad suppliers with various DIY kits but I'm having a hard time for the 2nd gen Tundra. Searched the interwebs for a while but came up with zero results. I do like that Warm Trans4mer setup though, looks good on the Tundra.

If you happen to know of any companies can you pass them along.

Thanks,

When you remove your bumper and all mounting points could I get you to do me a favor? I need 2 pictures one head on level with the bumper mounts and one from the side at the same level. I also need an accurate measurement in side to inside of the frame.
With those pics and measurements I can design a bumper in fusion 360 and create blue prints to build from.

Thanks jt

Ive searched high and low for the cheapest winch bumper- weld together kits vs complete ones.
Theres a good amount of skill required aside from just laying a bead on the weld together kits and if your not at least somewhat familiar with fab work then I personally would avoid them even if its bought from a usa made company with strict quality control standard, more so with the Chinese kits.
I think there are a couple videos on youtube describing exactly what im talking about with move bumpers.
Now that being said-
I own a nice 220 welder, a plasma cutter, grinders etc.
I have cut and notched frames, built winch mounts from scratch and have a decent amount of machining and fab work under my belt.
I chose to buy a dv8 / ko offroad bumper (oe wheels on ebay has them for $599 shipped)
Iirc its only about $100 more than the move bumper- but comes welded, powder coated with 4 led lights and 2 clevis'.
Sure, i had to do a "little" work to make it fit 100% perfect but I guarantee its nowhere near the headache that comes with a diy kit.

Any chance you have a link to that bumper ?
