I bet 32's would fit right now, ya think??

How do you think the Big Daddy Pre-Runner bumper would look on the front?? Anyone reccomend a front bumper? I can't decide on what to get

I only have one question, since OEM head lights doesn't work very well how do you drive at night??
Maybe you might need some IPF upgrade and then put these headlights covers.
I will suggest some nice 31's or 32's(not many choices of 32's) instead of a front bumper.

Looks good. Where did you get the scoop and what's it made out of?

3 inches is way too high and looks odd IMO... the 1 inch went great till I drilled a hole in my radiator

DiPi - Bumpers are(like everything else really) pretty personal when it comes to taste. I don't like stingers too much, but I do like bumpers with radiator hoops built in.

If I didn't get my Fab-tech look-a-like, I probably would have gotten something similar made custom... or went with a Rokmen Merc bumper. Something simple.... but thats me.

I say put the 2" BB and 33's. dont waste $ on 32's. (I have a set I am trying to sell right now on rims). I ran 32's with just a 1" BL and never had problems. AzTJ is right about bumpers. Its all in what your looking for. I like some stingers or bars and I also like stock bumpers. I went for both.

RedRock4x4 says they still have some of the JeeperMan super stubby bumpers in stock. And some other Jeeperman stuff as well.

My radiator stinks anyway, so that would be blessing if I'd done that. But yeah, def going with a one or 1.25 BL in the near future....One year later.../2" BB from RE and pro comp 33's mounted by Pro Comp/(BS&all, no BL at all yet), no sag, looks good, and runs good on highway @ 70+ so far......3.73's stock - (chewed & rebuilt). My plan my be different from yours though.. As things break I'll go bigger/better. She's a keeper.

i personally think the Rokmen Mercenary GT front bumper is the nicest on the market for its type.



their standard Mercenary bumper is great too




a second to that is the Shrockworks Rock Hammer
