This is a full height weld-together plate bumper kit for the 5th generation (2010-2020) Toyota 4Runner. This bumper is a direct replacement for the factory rear bumper. This means that no cutting or modification of any factory components is required for the installation of this bumper. Simple unclip the factory rear bumper and mounting brackets and begin bolting this bumper kit onto your 4Runner! This also means that no frame modification of any kind is required.
The end result is a bumper that features entirely bolt-on construction, mounting holes for a removable 2″ hitch receiver, and excellent protection from trail obstacles, trees and incompetent drivers. This bumper comes standard with 9/16″ D-ring shackle mounts and mounting locations for standard flush mount LED pods. These LED pods sit just under the factory tail lights giving them a much more effective light spread as well as keeping them out of harms way. To protect the vulnerable and irreplaceable rear quarter panels of your 4runner, this bumper is available with optional tubing side hoops that help push your 4runner away from trees and other obstacles.
The swing out tire carrier comes in either a single or dual sided configuration and is built to accept a tire up to 35″ in diameter. Both carriers include mounting brackets for a hilift jack and other recovery items. The dual swing out includes the hilift mount as well as a lockable jerry can holder designed to fit two 20L NATO style jerry cans. These carriers feature heavy duty double heim joint hinges, 2000lb toggle latches, T-handle spring pins, and a replaceable UHMW catch pad that provides secure, rattle free operation. The heim joints in conjunction with the toggle latch provide tons of adjustability, allowing for easy assembly and guaranteed alignment of the carrier latch. The single swing out add-on weighs 34lbs and the dual swing out add-on with gas can holder weighs 77lbs.
Forget the outrageous lead times of many bumper options that are measured in months. All of our bumper kits ship within 3-10 business days.
As for welding, with everything designed using CAD software and then CNC laser-cut to size, the pieces fit together perfectly and this makes for a very simple assembly process. All kits come with detailed instructions with plenty of clearly labelled diagrams that are made using cutting-edge CAD software. This bumper kit is well within the ability of a novice welder and many customers have purchased it as their very first welding project with great results! This is made possible by the clean parts fit-ups and thick material. These are two factors that make welding significantly easier. Welding is one of those skills that is easier to learn than you may think and once you can do it, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. Alternatively, many individuals buy the kits and then have a local welder assemble it for them. Even in this case, it typically ends up being less expensive than buying a pre-fabricated bumper – especially after considering the lower shipping costs of our kits vs. fully assembled bumpers.
