Heads Up! Front Bumper Bolts

Just a heads up. Saw this while i was removing my washer fluid reservoir. Which btw is the 5L size (vs the 2.5L) w rear wiper motor as well.

This pic shows one bumper bracket bolt super loose and another missing. Might want to check yours too!

sorry, tried to upload the pic and kept getting an upload error. cant take a smaller pic.

Use the tapatalk pro application for your smart phone and it will resize the photos smaller for you automatically.. As you can connect to the this forum through that as well.

I just replaced my OEM bumper with an aftermarket TJM. Some of the original bolts were not very tight. I was shocked to find that the entire original 97 bumper and lower [plastic] valence together weighed a grand total of 19.8 pounds! IMO, truly worthless as protection.

well, i totaled my first 4runner. hadnt even made the first pmt. t-boned a truck making a left turn blindly. all i can say is everything that should have crushed, did, and the cab remained safe.

...i immediately went out and bought my '98 new. i was sold on its safety. plus i think painted bumpers are plain dumb but such is the way it is these days.

It's one of the reasons I went back to frame on chassis vehicles. I was in a wreck in a 1991 camry which did its job but I was physically too big for the ride.

Frames make a big difference. While unibody is designed well to crush around the passengers. I like the Frame options.

Yep one of the best reasons for an aftermarket bumper (other than tire and travel clearance, approach angle and Mall Points) is getting a little bit of front end protection for an animal or Uber-Eats strike. The Fat-Lip on my 2000 LTD was useless, too. Now I couldn't care less what Dasher backs into me, as they will be getting a little tattoo from the d-ring hoops on my bumper.
