CBI Rear Bumber Install Toyota Tacoma | TCT MagazineIn the world of aftermarket bumpers for Toyota Tacomas, the available options for consumers are expanding every year.  So when it came time to take my build to the next level with a high clearance bumper, built to suit my overlanding needs, I had a good selection to choose from.

 

On the top of the list was the Bushmaster 2.0 from CBI Off Road Fabrications out of Idaho Falls, ID.  Over the years, CBI has been making a name for themselves as a high quality fabricator of aftermarket armor for many Toyota models.  Hand built in Idaho Falls, the Bushmaster 2.0 is specifically for the 2005+ Toyota Tacoma and offers many customizable options.download_now

Although the high clearance design of the Bushmaster requires cutting of the fenders, the bumper bolts directly into existing mounting holes within the Tacoma’s frame.  Made primarily of 3/16” steel with ¼” mounting brackets, the Bushmaster is built to take a beating.  A built-in receiver hitch now comes standard on all Bushmasters with a hinge license plate holder allowing access to the receiver.  I opted to include the tire swing arm to mount my spare tire (and Trasharoo), Rotopax mounts to hold more gas, and I had to include their fold down table built into the swing arm (I love this feature)!   Other options include: recessed reverse light housings, extendible camp light, CB mounts, and most anything else you can think of, they will do their best to fit your build design.

For installation, you can expect to take 1-3 hours, and can be done with simple tools and a cut-off wheel.  CBI includes all required mounting hardware.  The bumper will reuse a factory license plate light and the 7-pin adapter.  

IMPORTANT: TCT Magazine Recommends all installs be accomplished by a certified mechanic with proper equipment. Always take great care in performing vehicle modifications and have a mechanic check all work.
