Where did you guys get the TRDP style front end from? I have a buddy with a limited and he's looking to do the swap to a TRDP style front end.

So more than anything the look is what I was going for, but certainly clearance has been a benefit. I also mounted all terrain tires on my Limited and those rubbed the fender liners. When chopping the bumper I also chopped the parts of the fender liner that were rubbing; however, I had already fixed the rubbing issue by repositioning the fender liner, which didn't require trimming, only relocating the fender liner attachment points slightly forward.
I see, what size tires, rims and offset are you running ?

I have the TRD Pro rims running stock tire size 265/70/17s BF Goodrich KO2s. With these I had to push back the fender liners and make a new mounting hole about 1/2 inch back due to rubbing at full lock in reverse. No trimming required.

2012 Limited

Any updates on front bumper modifications to the 4runner Limited?
Im trying to figure out how to accommodate a low profile bumper and winch like the C4 that is made for the 2014 plus models

Check out Dark Runner Overland

Just seeing this thread now. I cut my Limited 2014 bumper a few years back and have loved the look as it has evolved over time.

I currently sell a DIY kit on Dark Runner Overland - Overlanding, Outfitters if you're brave enough to grab the dremel and go to town. If not, I'm working with a few dealerships to be able to get the price on a color-matched Limited bumper that I will cut to my specs for any customer that wants a simple plug-n-play option. In the meantime, checkout the website and my IG @Darkrunner overland for more pics.

Thanks!

Dan

Looks great! Would you happen to know the type of running boards these are?

Finished my chop and also worked on de-chroming over the weekend.

For the chop I chose a line that was not too aggressive. Starting from the fender I drew a line ~1/2 inch below the 2nd lowest fender bolt. I came down at a slight angle to completely remove the lower chrome on the bottom side of the bumper then had to come down at a little sharper angle to not expose too much of the crash bar. Then came straight across the lowest ridge that is also just below the bottom of the crash bar. I think it turned out really well. I used a small rotary tool with a metal cutting disc and although it created more heat the greater control was better than using my angle grinder. I was able to clean up the cut using various rotary tools - sanders, flapper wheel and polishers. The edge is really clean from straight on and even looking underneath it's really clean - no door trim required in my opinion. You can see the crash bar slightly on both sides but only if you are way back or squat down. If it bugs me too much I'll paint black later. You can barely see the washer reservoir from the side so I'll probably leave as is as well. For the fender liners I trimmed straight across and secured with 1 zip tie (1 per each fender liner) closest to the engine since on the outside I retained the 2nd lowest fender bolt and clip. For the lower portion of the front bumper I used 3 corner braces and very large zip ties that go around the crash bar. I spray painted the corner braces black and secured to the bumper using JB Weld. It likely didn't need it but I was worried about the styrofoam coming out in between the front bumper and the crash bar. The look is much more aggressive and really exposes the skid plate, front tow clips and front tires. No flapping or rubbing when driving at high speeds.

For the dechrome I kept everything in place and masked everything off. My last can of plasti-dip was defective (spewing drops out the base of the nozzle) so I ended up having to stop before I was fully complete. The result is some splotchiness in the look. Not sure if the splotchiness is because of lack of coats or maybe I didn't apply correctly or maybe it was too humid outside (I live in Georgia, humid almost all the time). Even with splotchiness I think it looks better! I ordered some more plasti-dip (I used Plasti-dip black glossy and can't find at any local stores) and will fix next time I have a free afternoon and good weather. I also dechromed the chrome piece that stretches across the entire rear bumper. Splotchiness there too but not as evident as the front pieces. Oddly the fog lights aren't splotchy at all.

Sorry for resurrecting such an old thread, but could you take some pictures of how this looks from a little further away? It looks so good in this picture and I'm about to pick up a 2017 limited, will probably end up doing the same kind of chop. Thanks!
