Where to get an inexpensive "tube style" rear bumper, and front bull bar?

Where's a good source for these parts if you own a 1st gen T4R?

Is custom fab the only option?

Define "inexpensive".

Trail-gear, CBI, 4xinnovations, and Marlin all make tube bumpers. There's more out there that I can't think of off the top of my head. Most of them start at $300 and go up from there.

the steal for my front and rear bumper was about $80 and it only took a weekend of slow steady work to fab them both up.

Rear tube bumper .. do you mean a SmittyBilt bumper?

I've been told that SmittyBilt no longer makes those rear bumpers for Toyota trucks but now only for Jeeps, so you'd have to find one on Craigslist that bolts to a Toyota? I've seen them there before.

I always wanted this style:

Like less than $700 for front and back.

This one has no tow hitch receiver, but there are others which do.

Craigslist or eBay ..

You can find one on Craigslist for like $50.

Yeah, SmittyBilt screwed the Toyota lovers over.

The smitty built ones are SO weak. i know a guy who hit a deer with one and it totalled his truck. i built my bumpers and the front has taken 3 deer and the rear took a full size dodge and they are both fine just needed some paint.

They dont make them because they are crap. Only offers a bit more protection than stock, plus they rust out wicked easy. Dont waste your money.

For $50 off Craigslist it's still a waste of money?

For inexpensive 4WD accessories Wal-Mart is always good.

Ugh u want inexpensive?

Try shipping those bumpers to Hawaii...I think shipping costs more than the bumper itself
