Unlike most brush guards and bumpers, ARB Bull Bars incorporate a fully engineered mounting system which completely replaces the factory bumper. ARBs Deluxe Bull Bar selection is the most extensive. Loaded with features aimed at making remote area travel safe, no other bumper offers the same degree of vehicle integration, protection or functionality.
Off-roaders know that every path taken is filled with unknowns. From rocks to sand and hills to finding a seemingly flat area, being prepared enables you to handle it all. If traveling in remote areas, wildlife can also present challenges. Along with having the right tires and rims to ensure smooth navigation, protecting yourself, passengers and the vehicle itself is a priority. When you are ready to find a first gen Tacoma ARB bumper, count on 4 Wheel Parts to get you back on the trails.
The Safety Factor
Unlike a standard bumper, bull pens offer extra protection. They are designed to protect the vital components of your vehicle, such as the engine and radiator. Their reinforced construction and unique shape pushes objects off to the side or underneath, keeping unwanted objects from hitting your windshield. They also provide a barrier from front bumpers being damaged. 4 Wheel Parts understands the importance of staying safe, which is why we carry parts from leaders in the industry both in quality and safety. The design for very Tacoma ARB bumper available has been put through a rigorous crash test, ensuring they match the factory's crush rate.
Safety and protection may be at the top of the list, but aesthetics and versatility rank nearby. Installing an ARB bumper Tacoma provides a location for accessories to truly make each adventure unique. Along with the ability to install lighting for enhanced visibility, tools and other parts for bumpers for trucks and Jeeps can be bolted on. For many, this add-on is the perfect opportunity to finally have a place for that long-desired winch.
When you are ready to upgrade your ride, 4 Wheel Parts prides itself on having the lowest prices for the best parts. We also have a 90-day price match, which guarantees you are getting the most bang for your buck.
I love the look of my ARB Bumpers. It transforms my truck into a Baja looking vehicle.

High Quality, No Instructions
I finally finished installing my bumper after a longer-than-expected procedure. I am not a mechanic, but would consider pretty pretty mechanically inclined. Here are my thoughts. My truck is 2003 Tacoma, crew cab, 4WD.
-Ordering from 4WP was great, and the free shipping was awesome. Dropped it off in the driveway on a pallet.
-GREAT quality. Great welds, great fit-up, very clean, great appearance.
-Almost all the holes are slotted so it makes install pretty easy, and it's easy to adjust to get it square.
-It is really important to replace the factory bumpers on these trucks. It's quite disturbing what flimsy pieces of crap they are. Thank God I never hit anything with the factory bumper, it would have totaled the truck (and me).
-Now that I'm done with install, I am happy overall and would recommend it.
-THERE ARE BASICALLY NO INSTRUCTIONS?!?! They give you a few sheets, but they are flippin terrible and the pictures suck (and I couldn't find anything helpful online). AND all the hardware (a decent amount) just comes all thrown together in a big 'ol bag. Very surprising and irritating (plus they're almost all metric, so that's fun deciphering them from the instructions). Since this kit covers several years of vehicle, there are some adapter type pieces included, and it makes the drilling/pinning part of the procedure confusing. Additionally, on my year of truck, the point where the bumper bolts to the end of the frame is a very weak point (thin metal). I ended up welding the frame extensions to the end of the frame, pinning the bumper thru those extensions, and then modified the bar that catches the front of the skid plate (bent the ends 90deg. and bolted them).
-The paint is a powder coat, so the coverage/finish is great, but the paint is more-so bonded to itself than to the base metal. I chipped mine in several places during the install. I am concerned how the paint will hold up to rock chips while driving.
-YOU HAVE TO LEAVE THINGS FINGER TIGHT UNTIL IT'S ALL IN PLACE! Super important. Otherwise you can't fit things together. I had to take mine completely on and off 3 times before I was finally happy with the fit (slow learner).
-The up-right supports are designed to crush on impact, which I guess is good for the function of the airbags, but I'm curios how it will hold up to a deer. And I'm a little concerned how those will handle getting pulled on from the shackle points.
-One of the frame extenders would only fit in one of the uprights (even tho they're supposed to be identical). So I had to completely uninstall it and swap it with the other one. I see that as being a QC mistake... just a little annoying.
In conclusion, I think these have to be the best option especially for the money. They are a quality product. Just be prepared to make a few modifications, and expect TERRIBLE instructions. And my recommendations- Dump the bag of fasteners out and group all the same items together, assemble everything completely but only finger tight, and have a bottle jack when you do the install (convenient for leveling, etc.)

Who needs instructions
Picked it up and the box was as big as my truck. Got it home opened the box found small box with parts and my new bumper.should of took it out of box at store.
Watched you tube and read instructions got the bumper painted the way I wanted felt a little nervous. Everyone on line was cutting and welding to get old bumpers off and to fit new bumper on. I don't weld and had to barrow angle grinder from a friend.
My 13 year old son and I sat down in the morning and started Un bolting old bumper lots of hidden bolts took us about 2 hours.
We went for lunch.
Came back to truck and paired up bits and pieces and started installing realizing the instructions are harder to understand than just putting it together. 30 minuts laiter we were making our final fitting adjustment and hooking up the lights. I only had to redrill skid plat hole to line up. No cutting no welding easy

ABR Deluxe Bull Bar Winch Mount Bumper
Bumper is very well built and gives an aggressive look to your vehicle. Doesn't pre-load factory suspension due to weight. Instulation on a 1999 Toyota 4runner limited. The factory bumper mount has a plate where it bolts to frame. This plate is welded and these welds have to be grinded off and a hole has to be drilled through the bottom of the frame to bolt brackets of new bumper. Installation is not difficult if you have some experience with a grinder and drill. The instructions are difficult to understand but videos online assist with install. Overall I would recommend this bumper to anyone who goes off roading often does not plan on ever putting a factory bumper back on. The delivery company used to deliver product sucked

I've dreamed of owning an ARB Bumper since I was a kid. Now that I own one, the company has not let me down! Great bumper! Very light for being a plate bumper!
I have a 1995.5 Tacoma and I was wondering if I will have to modify the nose of the frame (cut) to mount this replacement?

Thanks for the inquiry don, the ARB 4x4 Accessories Black Toyota Tacoma Deluxe Bull Bar Winch Mount Bumper part # ARB3423020 does NOT require cutting on a Tacoma but if mounting to a 4runner, that would require cutting.

Is there a special kit to fit this bumper when u have a 3 inch body lift on the truck ?
Pipeman from Warrenton nc on
The body lift should have already came with this bracket to do this. They do not come with the ARB bumper.
