Seems like I should start one since 99% of my projects begin with some crazy idea someone has posted on here... Sorry for all the NON rear bumper option chatter.
What front bumper are you going with? I'm ordering the Victory 4x4 slim/hybrid front bumper soon.

4th Gen 4Runner Low Profile Rear Bumper Kit - Coastal Offroad


I've looked at this several times, but my buddy did the front bumper kit on his 4th gen and said it was a pain in the ass. Other than that opinion, I haven't seen the rear setup in person and I don't have any welding experience.

DIY is always a pain in the ass but it's way more rewarding in the end. I built both front and rear bumpers on my Tacoma. Glad I did too because I had to modify them to fit correctly in my case. No way I could have gotten off the shelf bumpers to work without modifying them and that would have been twice as much and way more hassle.

Went with the coastal bumper, I liked that I could do a few changes to it. Changed the light cutouts for my bd squadrons and had the hoops custom bent to be tighter to the body.

Like @xtremewlr said... personal satisfaction thing and I also tweaked it a little bit to get the gap pretty consistent all the way around, that huge ass crack i see at the fender on a lot of them would drive me absolutely insane.

So much for rear bumpers lol

Still in progress, hopefully doing the finish welding this weekend -- and welding isn't too bad to pick up, plus it makes all kinds of projects a possibility, like the swing outs I did.

The first time I touched a welding machine was when I opened up the boxes from coastal Offroad. I did end up with that gap, I had no idea how to fix it at the time. In hindsight, the top plates need some bending upward at the corners. I donít hate the look, just wish it had turned out a tad bit tighter. I had no issues other than that.

The 3 nuts/bolts behind your shackles... you can add 1-3 washers between the bumper and frame on the top and 2nd bolt to tilt the bumper forward and eliminate the gap. Coastal Offroad themselves suggested this and even slotted the 22mm bolt to accommodate this.

I agree with SHagood, please make a build thread. You have some unique ideas and have done some nice work. We would all love to see that rear bumper set up and build in detail.

Potentially having a front bumper built as well?

I tried that suggestion with mine, although it was to open up the gap (or at least get a gap) in the front... the front of mine was smack up tight to the headlight trim pieces. Problem was it opened up a gap when looking down on the bumper, I could see the ground cause the bumper was standing out too far. But that is the nice thing about DIY kits, you're not stuck with what comes off the truck :-)

OCD indeed haha. But big thanks in advance if you decide to make a build thread on the rear swingout, looks super sick!

If you want to sell the C4... I am in the market and will take it off your hands. I'm leaning on either the LFD hybrid or the Victory 4x4. But if you don't want that anymore, I'm buying in the next 4-6 weeks so lmk.

I'm less than 100miles from Louisville, what ballpark for the rear bumper? Less than $1,000, more than $1500??? Running a wilco myself and hate how far it sticks out
