The “Baja Taco” options may be added to the Base Model bumper to make it even more suited to the multi-purpose intent of the Baja Taco, as well as give it a mean look!. Aggressively styled tubular Baja Taco Headlight Hoops act as brush guards to protect the Tacoma’s front corners when chasing through the heavy brush (Note: the Headlight Hoops option deletes the Side Protection Hoops from the standard bumper model). Baja Taco Filler Plates are four pieces welded into the bumper between the tubes on either side to provide protection from hazards closer to the ground. If ordered with a Base Bumper, these options come installed (welded on).
Note: The lower portion of the windshield wiper fluid tank will be visible after installation. Although this will not affect functionality, some customers find this visually objectionable. If you are concerned about the wiper fluid tank showing, we recommend you spray paint the tank with black paint or replace the tank with an aftermarket wiper tank kit in a different location in the engine compartment.
Note for installation on 1998-2000 Tacoma: You will need to trim the front frame rails and weld-in the included frame brackets to install this bumper on a 1998-2000 Tacoma. Read the instructions completely before ordering.
