DFW Prototyping Rig Needed - Winch Mount

We have a design but need a 2014+ SR5 (no Limiteds) rig to use for prototyping a new winch mount. Many have been asking for this and now we are ready to build one!

I don't have an exact date yet for the R&D session but thinking 2nd or 3rd week of January. We will need the truck on a Thursday evening and will be finished with it Sunday afternoon. Please read below.

----------------

This is for our new winch bumper that everyone has been waiting for. We finally have a design we like after about 6 iterations but need to get a prototype done for CAD.

Here's the deal. We'll need your 4Runner for 2-3 sessions, the initial prototype session, a 2nd some weeks later to fit a production prototype, then a 3rd (possibly) for final production fitment. IF you provide your truck for those sessions you will receive a free bumper once they are in production!

Couple of rules to help things along (from previous experience):
1. No wrecks. Your truck can not have been hit, ever.
2. If you say we can have it for those days/hours, we need it for all of that time or it won't do us any good.
3. If you can make one session but then not the second/third (we work with you on schedule) then we have to go find someone else to do test fitting (one day sessions) and that will change the deal.
4. If you volunteer for this and we schedule you accordingly you MUST be there, so check with the wife, kids, dog, neighbors and anyone else that might affect that.
5. You must be local to Granbury/DFW and you will need to provide a ride back home if you aren't here in the immediate Granbury area.

We are trying to expedite this for production so contact me if you can meet the guidelines above.

I'm in Texas and I'm a member of several local off-road and overland groups. I'll post a link to this and should be able to find someone pretty quick....

Had our primary not able to meet this date as he is now moving.

@SSDuck8 @I35it

Would one of you be available for a prototype session with your 4Runner on the weekend of January 20th?

The schedule would be as follows:

Bring it to our shop in Granbury on the afternoon of Thursday the 19th.
We will take it to our engineer's shop early on the 20th and would need it until the afternoon of Sunday the 22nd.*
We would then meet you at our shop in Granbury at a designated time the afternoon of the 22nd to return it to you.

Let me know asap!

A Trail is great, just can't use a Limited. We have an extra bumper cover/nose piece so we won't be cutting on yours.

Can you cut loose of your 4R for the period of time as stated above?
