2 months no updates. I hope they haven't abandoned the project. Anyone know if they're still working on it? Was really looking forward to it. Thanks

I know. I was looking forward to this!! Unfortunately I had to go ahead and go with a different front bumper because I have trips planned that cover trails where I値l need the clearance and protection, and just couldn稚 wait any longer. Too bad, I was really interested in this bumper. I知 sure they値l get it to market eventually, but it was just bad timing for me.

Again, I love the concept and preliminary design. I値l still be following this thread and who knows maybe try to sell my other bumper eventually and move to this one ..

2 months is like 2 minutes in prototyping/development time. I wouldn't worry about it.

With all due respect to you and your own awesome designs and renowned products, I can't sit by and watch my ghastly plastic Fat Lip get more and more shredded on every off-road excursion

I went another way for now, too, but will continue follow and I will eventually own more than one 3rd Gen.....

THanks for followign along!

UPDATE

I apologize again for the slow development. I have my reasons but they don't really matter to you as potential customers. This product will come to market and I hope that my OCD over the details and long prototyping time creates a better product in the end.

Here are some updated images:

DC3I0261.jpg by Tamarack, on Flickr

DC3I0254.jpg by Tamarack, on Flickr

Still waiting on my new scans (annoying) to finish the wing supports for the factory bumper. Good news is that the black 96-98 bumper I just purchased was in plentiful stock from Toyota and actually quite cheap for an OEM part (I think it was $250CAD retail). We are cutting the solid recovery mount version with a wider center section this week as well as sliders for a 3rd gen and a 1G Tacoma. (this hasn't been the only project I've been working on lol) Also making the LED pod mounts for inside of the turn signal openings.

Also a sneak peak at our low-profile sliders that will be coming for the 3rd gen as well:

I love the bumper...looks so amazing. Also, awesome design and idea with the removable sliders. Have you thought of adjustable ones? for a lot of rock sliding you could tuck them in, but if a pass is really narrow to avoid fender damage you could extend them out? Just a thought, amazing work you're doing.

Looks good. I’m def in the market for something other than the stock bumper. I feel like I have a picnic table bolted on the front.

Been following this for a long time now, hopefully everything comes together soon! One question, do you plan on having an option for a grill bar on the upper bumper replacement? The peace of mind would be very nice if you happen to clip a deer on the highway.
