Here at Bay Area Metal Fab we like to set trends. I was one of if not the first to make a bracket to clamp the front bumper in place way back in 2010 and we didn't even make bumpers. Peoples bumpers were bending the frame horns during hard pulls while winching.
Now just about every manufacture supplies you with something of the sort and if they don't stay far away if it mounts a winch.
Fast forward to 2019 we released our first production bumper line and we had to one up the market. Most bumpers on the market make you mangle your resi mounts in order to mount it. Leaving you with a floppy shock resi.
Our new reinforcement brackets fully capture the frame horn and clamp the bumper in place. No modification to any brackets to mount, It bolts in three locations giving you two 1/2" grade 8 bolts in shear and one in tension. Providing what I can easily say is the strongest bracket on the market giving you 9 attachment points in total to mount your bumper.
These come standard with our Tacoma bumpers but they will also be a nice upgrade to other bumpers on the market. (Note) drilling or cutting of your bumper may be required to mount our mount to a Non BAMF bumper.
Material: .188" HRPO plate formed as a single piece then gusseted to prevent the mount from opening up during a hard pull.
Finish: Bare or powder coated black
Hardware: four 4"x1/2" grade 8 bolts & Two 5"x1/2" grade 8 bolts included
