    If I was able to drive up from phoenix with my vehicle would that help with designing different attachment points for the bumper? I really like the design of your bumper but might have an issue getting a day off in-order to drive up or leaving my vehicle for multiple days. If you come up with any ideas let me know.

    I wish I lived in socal! I would have my truck over to you in an instant. I love the look of your bumpers how they don't stick out very far, hang down too low, and the lines are clean.

    Yeah 1st gen is 2000-2006, 2nd gen 2007-now

    If you are serious about building a bumper for us left behind, I would recommend posting a "want" post on Tundrasolutions, or even here. If there are other Tundraholics like me out there, I'm sure you'll have a 1st gen in your shop really quick.

    If no one replies, I might have to make a trip down there next month on my spring break....

    Nice looking bumpers!

    If you would have been around when i was in the market for a 2nd gen Tundra bumper- I woulda jumped. Exp1 got me though (and i love it). Making sliders for a crewmax would get my $$.

    You think a 5th gen runner bumper is in your future project line? Im in the market for one. Plate, winch mount, clevis', light/deer hoops. Limited sliders too.

    Playing with models to see if we can keep it light with out jumping in weight to maintain the same strength. The catch with Aluminum ( other then cost) is making sure we can run similar thickness with out losing strength. Trust me I want to make one as I will run one on my own 3rd gen ( as soon as I find it)

    Question... Would an aluminum bumper of the same thickness of the steel be as strong as the stock bumper?

    Picture if you will, a steel sub-structure that goes to the frame on each side, the shackle clevis's are attached to this sub-structure as well as the platform for the winch, and the aluminum acts as a cover for this structure, but with some extra sturdy side mountings to provide some side strength.

    Am I making any sense?

    That would be kind of an interesting idea if I understand your description (4runamok). So you would have the structural integrity of the steal but have a bolt on finished structure that would be aluminum to save weight. Is that what you were describing? That would be pretty cool to see.
