Trail Gear Bumper

Is anyone running the rear bumper on a 1st gen?

Had a few questions I didnt find searching the forum or on their site.

Do you have to trim the bed at all to fit around the rear wheel well?

Is it a necessity to box the frame when adding a heavier bumper or just recommend?

Keep in mind I'm in the medicore wheeling category, it wont be taking severe repeated beatings.

Working on some stuff.....

1st gen what? If it's not a tacoma it should have a boxed frame.

On a first gen truck?

You wont have to trim unless you move the wheel base. You may have to drill a new hole in the frame to mount it correctly. Other than that your truck wont even know its there.

1st gen tacoma, based on pictures i can find it doesnt look like any cutting but still leaves to question, boxing the rear of the frame....
