BAMF 2016 Plus Toyota Tacoma Alumisteel Front plate bumper is a revolutionary design. We have been asked time and time again will you make an aluminum winch bumper. The answer was always no! The pulling forces the bumper will see when under a load is far too high to support the winch. This has been proven over and over again with people ripping their bumpers from the truck while winching. This is why you see people calling aluminum bumpers "mall crawler" or " street queen" bumpers.
We have set out the end that stigma with the release of the BAMF AlumiSteel front bumper. The bumper is a modular design, The winch cradle is constructed from .250" HRPO A36 steel. Gusseted and keyed together for Superior rigidity this cradle is pure beef. It's clamped to the frame with our reinforcement brackets Locked down with six 1/2" grade 8 bolts. Coming in at 68lbs the cradle holds most of the bumpers weight. The .190" 5052 Aluminum (offered in Steel as well) shell bolts to the cradle using 21 3/8" grade 8 bolts. The wings are gusseted in mutable locations providing "some" impact resistance.
We are planning on offering mutable shell options, So if your build starts to take a different direction or you get in a fender bender and bend a wing, You can swap out the shell without having to buy a whole new bumper.
All bumpers come standard with:
_.188" Steel Welded Reinforcement Brackets for worry free winching._ 3/4" thick D-ring mounts._ 30" Single Row LED light bar and fog light cutouts.
The winch plate is 1/4" And the outer skin is .190" (3/16th").
