Removing rear bumper

Recommended Posts

Hey peeps...anybody remove their rear bumper and leave it like that?

Thought about it, the few times I've removed the bumper cover. The cover is just for aesthetics, of course...it'd free up some ground clearance behind the tires, but wouldn't be worth it unless I also removed my hitch.

What if someone rear ends you though? I'd rather them dent the bumper than the actual frame. Think about it. Bumper is easier to find either at wreckers or online than trying to straighten the frame.

The R50's have a bumper and bumper cover. You can remove the bumper cover and leave the bumper and it offers about the same impact protection.

Think you could put up a couple more pics of everything being removed? Gets me thinking about a new bumper that integrates the hitch :)

Well, you make a point. But I'm interested in seeing the exposed area where the trailer hitch mounts, if you don't mind. Can only see so much on mine with everything still mounted.

Lots of space under there and plenty of ground clearance

I just had to track down a bumper for mine. That was not fun. Some A$*hole on his phone wasnt paying attention. These wd21s are getting scarce around here.

Damn that sux...if I could afford a steel bumper I'd buy one in a heartbeat but a new ac comp and install is setting me back $1350

That sucks. If you're looking a for new steel one, I found Tactical Armor Group makes some that you can add the tire carrier and integrated reciever hitch.

Yup you guys are correct. Hadnt really seen any consistent reviews till I searched more and found some on a tacoma forum.
